at the physical meeting in Canberra, you will need to designate a proxy
to vote.

To designate your proxy:

form is with your proxy to take to the AGM (Appointment of Proxy 2014

	*	Check one box only for the proposed Constitutional
	*	If you do not provide voting instructions in these
sections, you authorise the proxy holder to decide how the proxy will
	*	Notify the National Secretary, Sarah Lau (
slau at chemcentre.wa.gov.au) - this must be done or the proxy and vote is
not considered valid
	*	Ensure that the proxy form is completed prior to 4.00pm

Please note that votes will remain confidential at all times. All voting
