Supporting the Council, supporting our communities
As we enter the new financial year, it is a great time to reflect on the ongoing contribution of members and supporters of the AIDS Action Council. A MASSIVE thank you to all those who contributed to the Council’s End of Financial Year Drive for the Trevor Daley Fund, you can read more about the Fund below.
It is now that time of year where we renew our memberships. Membership of the Council is vital in continuing the vital work of the Council supporting our communities and ending discrimination, marginalisation and stigma for those living with and impacted by HIV/AIDS.
Since its establishment in the early days of the AIDS crisis, the Council has been a member-based, community controlled organisation. The Council will forever be a member organisation; members are the lifeblood of our organisation. As a grassroots organisation, a diverse, engaged and representative membership is crucial for the ongoing health of the Council.
