Notification of Annual General Meeting

News

Dear Writers SA Members,

The Annual General Meeting of Writers SA (the SA Writers Centre Incorporated – ABN 40783458265) will be held at 6pm on Thursday 28 May 2020 via Zoom. 

Call for Board of Management Nominations

The Writers SA Board of Management consists of eight members. All current financial members are eligible to nominate for the Board of Management. The term of office is two years, with four members expiring at each AGM. Board of Management members are unpaid, and must have a strong commitment to writers and writing. As we face significant challenges in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, we more than ever require passionate, skilled board members who will help to guide us through our 35th year and beyond.

This year there are five vacant positions (four for a two-year term; one for a one-year term) and we are seeking nominees.

Nominations for the Board of Management must be received in writing by 5pm Wednesday 20 May 2020 by completing a nomination form and emailing it to melanie@writerssa.org.au.

Download the nomination form

If there are more nominees than positions available, there will be an online vote. Voting information will be circulated prior to the AGM. If you are unable to attend the meeting, you may submit a proxy voting form.

Current Board of Management:

Amanda Grocock (Chair), Jane Howard (Deputy Chair), Theresa Williams (Treasurer), Susan Errington, Amy Matthews, Alan Atkinson and Jill Jones.
