Agenda

Proposed agenda items, notices of motion and treasurer nominations must be received by 6pm AEST Friday 8 December 2017, and can be sent to Teresa Belcher, National Secretary (secretary@asc.asn.au).

Treasurer vacancy

Members also have the chance to elect a new National Treasurer. Due to family commitments, our current treasurer Pete Wheeler is resigning after 5 years of service. We’d like to thank Pete for being such a stalwart contributor in the engine room of the ASC, overseeing the association finances and related compliance and reporting in times of change, and keeping the national executive up to date on all things finance during this time.
Nominations for Treasurer should be accompanied by a nomination statement (<400 words) of skills/experience in relation to the position. Note that notices of motion require a proposer and a seconder, and nominations for Treasurer need to be agreed by the nominee.

Proxies

Members unable to attend the AGM in person can give proxies to other members attending the meeting. This means that unless members are at the physical meeting in Adelaide, you will need to designate a proxy to vote.

To designate your proxy:

  • Download and complete the proxy form, and ensure a copy of this form is with your proxy to take to the AGM (Word and PDF)
  • Notify the National Secretary, Teresa Belcher (secretary@asc.asn.au) – this must be done or the proxy and vote is not considered valid
  • Ensure that the proxy form is completed prior to 6pm AEST Friday 15 December 2017

Please note that votes will remain confidential. All proxy forms will be collected and destroyed after the AGM.
