Join the Hackett Community Association

Membership is FREE

Membership of the Hackett Community Association is open to anyone who lives, works or has a business or property in Hackett. Residents and businesses are encouraged to join and actively contribute to the Association.

It is crucial that the Association has a sufficiently large representative and active membership base to have any real influence on Government. The Government will generally only listen to community organisations such as ours when there is a significant number of active and committed residents.

It is also important that we demonstrate as a community that we are actively involved in shaping and influencing the direction of our community to achieve the best outcomes from government planning and programs to be treated seriously.

By joining you will receive the following benefits:

  • you will have a say in your community, influence outcomes and become part of a vibrant organisation
  • you will be able to vote at Annual General Meetings on proposed resolutions and nominations for committee positions
  • you will be better informed on what is happening in your suburb and in turn increase your ability to influence outcomes
