Next year is the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Folk Federation of NSW – a time to celebrate, to reflect on our past and to set our course for the next 40 years. Come along to the AGM on 26th July and show your support for the Folk Federation. Better still, why not join the Committee and help us plan next year’s party?

At the AGM, members will be asked to vote on a Special Resolution to revoke our existing Rules and replace them with new Rules which are designed to simplify our operating practices and bring the Rules into line with current legislation. Copies of the proposed new Rules can be viewed here and a copy of the current Rules can be obtained by ringing FF Secretary Pam Davis (02) 9955 3677. If you can’t attend the AGM, you can still register your vote for this important change by completing a proxy form.
