The Gay and Lesbian Organisation of Business and Enterprise (GLOBE) has announced another successful year.
Figures released at its Annual General Meeting held on 12 August 2014 showed that GLOBE delivered an operating profit of $24,631 and an increase in turnover by about 40%.
President of GLOBE David Micallef says the success has come from increased membership, more events, sponsorship and better financial management of events.
GLOBE presented five recipients each with a grant of $1000 last Thursday to support development of exciting projects in the GLBTI community.
Together with the Minister for Health, the Hon David Davis, GLOBE presented the grants to StartOutAustralia, the FTM Shed, PrideTV.com.au, Sarah Calati and the Melbourne Gay and Lesbian Chorus.
All Australian couples, whether they are married or living together in a de facto relationship (including same-sex couples), are able to plan and formally document how they would like their financial affairs and assets to be divided if their relationship breaks down. This is known as a Financial Agreement.
GLOBE talks connecting, rejuvenating and making a difference with Christine Lewis, Founder and Owner of 65main Guesthouse, Convener of BE MAD and GLOBE member.
65main is the idyllic getaway location to explore everything that Daylesford and Hepburn Springs has to offer. The guest house is comfortable and quirky allowing for individual room bookings right up to whole house reservations. Christine is the welcoming and generous host who has realised her dream of a ‘tree change’ and running a gorgeous place for people to rejuvenate and reconnect with themselves, their passions and their loved ones.
The Gay & Lesbian Organisation for Business and Enterprise (GLOBE) today announced the launch and the opening of nominations for the inaugural GLOBE Community Awards.
The GLOBE Community Awards are the only ones of their kind in Victoria and will celebrate achievements in our State’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex community.
GLOBE President David Micallef is thrilled with the development of the Awards, which will be presented at a gala event on 17 October 2014.
“These awards are the opportunity our community needs to celebrate our successes and to honour the exceptional work being done by individuals and groups to make Victoria an amazing place to identify as GLBTI,” Mr Micallef said.
