ASC AGM 2009 – agenda, presidential nominees and call for proxies

Hi, all

Please find below the agenda for next Wednesday’s national ASC Annual General Meeting (I will circulate minutes from the 2008 AGM in a subsequent email, for your reference). This year’s event will take place at 6pm at the Clarendon Hotel, 156 Devonshire St, Surry Hills. Be there to vote, discuss, munch nibbles and sip a free drink. Further details, and details of the trivia extravaganza immediately following the AGM, are at the bottom of this email. Please RSVP for either or both events to me (

If you are unable to make it to the Clarendon Hotel yourself, please send your proxy to me ( or someone else who will be attending the meeting, before 5pm (AEDST) on Wednesday 16 December.

To date there has been one nomination for the role of ASC President in 2010: Jesse Shore. Jesse Shore has over 26 years of experience as a science communicator. Currently he works through his business, Prismatic Sciences, to develop science-based programs for various audiences and media. From 1984 through 2008 he worked at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney where he was an exhibition project leader during the building of the museum and then Senior Curator of sciences for 21 years. While at the museum he created, directed and promoted a wide range of science exhibitions and events and in 2006 was one of the founders of the Ultimo Science Festival, a major National Science Week activity. Jesse was involved with National Science Week events and organising committees from 1997 through 2008 and chaired the 2001 NSWk NSW Coordinating Committee. He has been an active member of the Australian Science Communicators for many years and headed the program committee for the national conference held at the Powerhouse in 2001. Jesse is currently treasurer and National Council representative of the ASC NSW branch.

Nominations for President can still be lodged (with me) up until 5pm (AEDST) on Wednesday 16 December.
