This is the official notice of the Australian Science Communicators'
Annual General Meeting, to be held in Canberra, ACT on 5 December 2014. 


The AGM is an opportunity for members to hear about the year's events at
the national level, and also to have their say about what should happen
in the year to come. It also includes reports from the President and
Treasurer. We will announce more information about the physical venue
and event details shortly.


When: Friday 5 December 2014, 6.00pm

Where: Venue TBA, in Canberra, ACT

RSVP: Will be advised when venue is confirmed

Cost: free for ASC members (only currently financial ASC members are
eligible to attend the AGM)


Members also have the chance to elect a new National President. Proposed
agenda items, notices of motion and presidential nominations must be
received by Thursday 27 November 2014 and can be sent to Sarah Lau,
National Secretary (slau at chemcentre.wa.gov.au).


Note that notices of motion require a proposer and a seconder, and
nominations for President need to be agreed by the nominee.


Members unable to attend the AGM in person are able to give proxies to
other members attending the meeting, or alternatively, send them to
Sarah Lau, National Secretary. Instructions for nominating proxies and
voting instructions will be circulated shortly along with the
notification of official business.


Below is the agenda for the AGM. Minutes from the previous AGM (2013)
