The BREAZE Incorporated Board met for a full day workshop on Saturday 1st February 2014. In attendance were the recently appointed Board members; Caroline Reisacher, Ian Rossiter, Jane Lean, Micah Demmert and Ross Rizzo along with Rachel Kinscher, Rene de Jong, Steve Burns and Stephen Roberts.
The first half of the workshop focussed on the current status of all BREAZE activities, including input from volunteers, the Smart Living Centre, finances of both BREAZE Incorporated and BREAZE Enterprises and compliance requirements. All Board Members must be fully briefed for good decisions to be made.
The second half centred around income generation and forming 4 functional groups which will allow BREAZE to become outwardly active again.
The function groups agreed upon are:
Governance: Lead – Stephen Roberts
Income Generation: Lead – Micah Demmert
Program Development: Lead – Ian Rossiter
Community and Volunteer Engagement: Lead – Caroline Reisacher
These groups are forming now. You’ll be hearing from us soon as we will be asking for volunteers on actions coming from the group leaders.
The Board also said farewell to Steve Burns who hosted us and participated in the day. Steve has resigned from the Board after many years of engagement with BREAZE. We wish him well.

Connecting with the Ballarat Heritage Weekend, the Ballarat Apron Festival will showcase a gorgeous display of vintage aprons and memorabilia alongside some fabulous modern and vintage inspired aprons entered in the apron making competition.
We invite you to download the Ballarat Apron Festival Registration Form and make and submit up to 3 aprons in any one of 10 different categories. There is no limit on the materials you use, but the apron must be able to be worn and undertake the basic function of an apron, which is to protect the wearer’s clothes.
The Smart Living Center has a catagory: "Use of sustainable practices" with a prize of a Ballarat Book Gift voucher - so think about what you could recycle to make an apron, or how to weave "sustainable" into your creation.
• Entries accepted from Friday 11 April 2014
• Entries close on Friday 25 April 2014 (NB. both aprons and entry forms are due by this date)
• Exhibition opens to the public on Saturday 10 May 2014 – 10am to 5pm
• Exhibition closes on Sunday 11 May 2014 at 4pm
