Membership of Reconciliation Tasmania has two forms: active and passive. Passive membership is when an individual is interested in supporting the reconciliation movement and keeping up-to-date with news, upcoming events and celebrations but doesn’t have the time to play an active role in our organisation.
An active member is an individual who is interested in the reconciliation movement and would like to take a hands-on approach in their membership. This might include: attending the regular member briefings or participating in events such as lectures, on-country days and community gatherings. Often our active members choose to increase their involvement through volunteering.
Volunteers play a crucial role in Reconciliation Tasmania, actively promoting our educational programmes such as Youth Speakout and Narragunnawali and assisting with the planning, organisation and running of events such as National Reconciliation Week, NAIDOC Week and supporting our ongoing employment and tourism initiatives. It is not unusual for our members to switch from passive to active or indeed from active to volunteer.
When a new member registers they are asked to nominate as either an active member or a passive member, however, members are welcome to change the status of their membership at any time.
If you are thinking of registering your membership of Reconciliation Tasmania, please feel free to contact us to discuss your membership options.
