This is the official notice of the Australian Science Communicators' WA Branch Annual General Meeting, to be held on 3 December 2014.

The AGM is an opportunity for members to hear about the year's events, and to have their say about what should happen in the year to come. It also includes reports from the President and Treasurer.

When: Wednesday 3 December 2014, 5:30pm
Where: University Club, Hackett Drive, Crawley WA
RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/australian-science-communicators-wa-agm-tickets-14281485307 by Monday 1 December.
Cost: free for ASC members (only currently financial ASC members are eligible to attend the AGM, although non-members may sign up at the event.)

Given the low attendance at ASC-WA events in 2014, much of the discussion will focus on possible reasons for this and the future of ASC-WA. One proposal is that ASC-WA hold fewer events per year and that these focus on facilitating networking opportunities for members, as this is where the strength of ASC-WA seems to lie. We urge as many members as possible to attend the AGM and contribute to the discussion.

Members also have the chance to elect a new committee. Proposed agenda items, notices of motion and presidential nominations must be received by Thursday 27 November 2014 and can be sent to Teresa Belcher, President (TeresaB at rangelandswa.com.au<mailto:TeresaB at rangelandswa.com.au>).

Please note that we require a minimum of 14 members to attend the AGM in order for it to be valid. Members unable to attend the AGM in person are able to give proxies to other members attending the meeting, or alternatively, send them to Teresa Belcher, President. Members wishing to nominate a proxy should inform Teresa Belcher of their proxy via email.

Below is the agenda for the AGM. Minutes from the previous AGM (2013) will be circulated shortly.
