Only current members can vote at the AGM; however, it is open to all persons interested in slacklining in Australia. If you have received this email directly from [email protected] your membership is current. If you cannot attend and still wish to vote at the AGM, you will need to provide a proxy. The appointment of a proxy must be in writing and signed by the member. You will then need to email that to [email protected] and this will be handed to the Chairperson of the meeting.
After delivering the committee annual report and financial statements at the AGM all the committee positions will be made vacant. We will be electing all the following positions at the AGM:
5. 8 x State and Territory Representatives.
If you wish to nominate for one of these positions, please send an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the committee [email protected] by 24th Jul 22, with a brief explanation on why you will be suitable for that position, e.g. experience, skills, time-availability, community involvement, endorsements etc. EOI for multiple positions are allowed. These EOI will be reviewed, and where agreed, endorsed by the committee for a nomination. Alternatively, you are free to nominate during the AGM.
To be eligible for a committee position you need to be 18 years or over, a voting member, and for the state or territory representative, a resident of that state/territory.
