Rotorua Parents Centre

Thought about volunteering with us?

Due to a turnover of committee members (babies and suchlike) we need 3-4 enthusiastic committee members to take on 2018 with us!

Did you know a well known female politician started out her career as a Parents Centre President? 

We need:


Answer some emails
Make sure everyone is answering the emails they need to answer.
Help prepare for the AGM and prepare reporting.
Work with Memberships officer to make sure new members get their packs.
Work with the social media co-ordinator and minutes secretary to disseminate info onto our external page (Rotorua Parents Centre) and our internal committee  page.
Help set dates for meetings (make sure there is one!)
Clear the postbox and distribute mail.

Pitter Patter Team x2

Help the Pitter Patter editor publish bi-monthly.
Source local content to put into the magazine.
Help mailout (print envelopes etc)
Eventually take over the reins as Editior.
We currently use “Pages” software but are open to using other software.
Eventually (hopefully this year!!) Pitter Patter will “go digital” so being handy with a computer is good!

President (Vice president until AGM)

Not as scary as it sounds - a lot of it is just co-ordination.
Liase with head office and ensure we provide all info they need, get help from them when needed.
Ensure reporting is in to the DHB (with Treasurer)
Chair meetings (or deputise someone if you can’t come)
Co-ordinate events - eg set a date for secondhand sale, assist co-ordinator to organise.
Attend national AGM (via conference call)
Work closely with CBE convenor to make sure antenatal is running smoothly
Oversee Playgroup and Baby and You co-ordinators
Oversee Pitter Patter Editor provide support where needed


Organise raffles, co-ordinate gift wrapping - the possibilities are endless!
Find us ways to make some money!
Apply for grants eg lotteries - easy as :-) This can be done from home.
