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.
You can read an annotated version of these draft rules here.

Much of our city’s standing as Australia’s cultural capital can be traced back to the Melbourne Athenaeum and the role it played in the early promotion and development of music, visual arts, literature and theatre.
The Melbourne Athenaeum’s writer-in-residence program provides tangible support to an established playwright with financial support and a creative and inspirational place to work.
Members enjoy a public event, such as a rehearsed play reading, as the culmination of this annual program.
