Hi All, With the conclusion of our recent SGM, attention now turns to our upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM), which will be called "Soon(tm)". I intend that this meeting will be a largely procedural affair, solely for the tabling of reports and the announcement of the new committee. This is in line with the practice of many other incorporated associations.
With that in mind, if you're thinking about running for the committee next year, now is the time to decide which position you would like to run for, and start lining up some nominators. For the first time this year, we will elect a management committee of eight members, consisting of four officers (President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary), and four ordinary members. You can be nominated for a maximum of one officer position and one ordinary member position. In the event that not enough nominations are received to fill all the positions, further nominations will be called for at the AGM. Further details will be released as they come to hand. In the meantime, if you have not expressed a preference to receive notice of general meetings via email, and do not have any particular requirement to receive a paper copy of the notice in the mail, please do consider advising the Secretary that you'd prefer to receive your notice electonically, per rule 12(2)(b)( http://www.wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Rules#12._Notice_of_general_meetings). Not only does this save the chapter money on postage costs, it also does a little bit to save some trees and save the planet. Regards, Craig Franklin President - Wikimedia Australia
