The OM:NI organisation is much bigger than any one group. There are currently 21 groups in Victoria with representatives from each who meet regularly to report on group activites, to discuss future plans and to exchange news and ideas.
During the quarter ending 31 March 2016 attendances at individual OM:NI meetings ranged from three to 30 with an average of around ten. Of the 21 groups, seven had an average attendance of six or less, thirteen groups had averages between nine and fourteen and one group, Eltham, an average of 29 – our Diamond Creek group averaged 13 for the quarter.
The OM:NI organisation is a program of COTA Victoria (Council On The Aging)
COTA Victoria has been the voice of older Victorians for 60 years
COTA Victoria is governed by an elected Board of Management, dedicated staff and volunteers who continually strive to ensure that the contributions of older people are proudly recognised and acknowledged within our community.
