It is time again for our Annual General Meeting. It’s been a great year of rebuilding so far and we have some cool plans for next year, but we are also wanting to hear about what works for members and what doesn’t. Our AGM is the first part of that plan, so please come along and let us know your thoughts and suggestions or critiques.
If you would like to get more involved and nominate yourself to be part of the Executive Committee (President, Vice President, Treasurer) or the General Committee (Webmaster/Social Media Person, Social Coordinator), please send your nomination and a brief blurb about yourself and why you would be good for the position to our current Vice President/Secretary, Adam Gastineau at: vice.president@jetaacanberra.
If you can’t make make it and would like to appoint someone as your proxy for voting purposes please send Adam an email at the above VP email address, stating your name, whether you are a full member (ie, ex-JET) or associate member, the date of the AGM (18 July 2014) and who you want to nominate as your proxy. Clicking on this link will create a pro forma email that has all the necessary details.
One of the things we will be voting on are proposed changes to our Charter. The proposed changes mainly relate to tightening up wording relating to membership and the Executive Committee, and also changing face of JETAA and what me might consider our role to be in the Japan and Canberra community.
A copy of the Charter with proposed changes can be found on our website here:
Please note: these are just suggestions at this point, put together by several members and we would appreciate any feedback you might have, either at the AGM or by email before the AGM if you can’t make it.
Hopefully we can wrap it up reasonably quickly and grab some food and drinks together afterwards!
