The Committee, lead by Treasurer Kevin Quigley, has undertaken a revision of the rules which govern the operation of the Melbourne Athenaeum, last revised and registered in 2007. Members will have an opportunity to raise any questions about these draft rules at the AGM, which will take place in the Library at 1pm on 17 April.

The Melbourne Athenaeum enriches Melbourne’s cultural and educational life by fostering public engagement with the arts and culture, and supporting creativity.
A Management Committee of volunteers is responsible for the organisation’s governance, and every member joining the Melbourne Athenaeum becomes a custodian of a rich part of the city’s living history.
Our Patron is the Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria.
A dedicated group of volunteers forms our Committee of Management, bringing expertise from numerous industries to their roles.
The Melbourne Athenaeum is indebted to its volunteers who provide invaluable assistance and make our organisation a special place to visit.
