The Milan Club Melbourne is a registered Not-For-Profit Organisation. All committee members are volunteers, and meet monthly, as well as working between each meeting to make sure that Melbourne has a Milan Club. As President of the club, I would like to personally thank, and make note of each of our committee members - who without - the club would not exist. You can find each of their profile's, and a description of their roles below.
As well as this, we are always looking to bring on new helpers - whether it be in a non-formal or formal capacity. If you would like to get involved please get in touch using the form above.
