Where: Amnesty International Action Centre, Level 1, 79 Myrtle St, Chippendale

RSVP: or on 8396 7665 - please mention if you are going to attend in person or ring in. While AI wants to engage with as many action groups as possible, we understand that it may be difficult (both in terms of time and money) to travel to Sydney to attend the catch-up. AI NSW is able to pay for transport for members outside the Sydney area or assist those who would like to ring in over the phone to take part in the meeting. If you are unable to attend in person but are keen to ring in: (Ph.) 96960695, (PIN) 336849#

The Catch-Up will be a great opportunity to: - Meet and engage with other NSW groups, convenors and members of AI NSW. - Receive updates on the Refugee campaign and our new campaign around AI's 50th Anniversary - Go over problems arising for action groups, especially on retention and mobilisation of members - Run through the new campaign and events - Provide us with valuable feedback about your group activities, experiences and concerns.

Looking forward to seeing all of you at the meeting!
