2016 National Awards Partners

AC Magazines

Dear NSW ACS member,
You are advised that the annual general meeting (AGM) of the NSW branch of the ACS will be held in three weeks’ time at:
Time: 6:30pm sharp
Date: Thursday 25th August 2016
Location: ACS HQ, Level 2, 26 Ridge Street, North Sydney, NSW, 2060

Below is link for you to download a committee nomination form and you are invited to nominate either yourself or another member for available positions which are:
Committee members (10); President, Vice President 1, Vice President 2, Secretary, Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer.
The following conditions apply to any and all nominations:
1: The nominating member must be currently financial (i.e. you must be up to date with ACS NSW membership);
2: If you are nominating another person for a position they must also be financial and they must be aware that you are nominating them (they must also be aware of the requirements for a position, see ‘further information’ below);
3: If there is more than one nomination for an executive position or more than ten nominations for committee member positions then there will be a vote for that position at the AGM;
4: If you are unable to attend the AGM personally then you may ask an attending financial member to vote on your behalf but they must have it in writing (and signed by you) that they are acting as proxy for your vote and you must also include who you are voting for and for what position;
5: If you are nominating for an executive position (i.e. President/VP/Sec/Treasurer) then the person being nominated must have some former experience in a similar position (this does not mean that you must have been, for example, a committee President before but it does mean you have some form of experience at this level to ensure the continued smooth running of the NSW branch); if you are nominating for a committee member position then no experience is necessary but commitment is;
6: Any nominations received after the closing date given above will not be accepted and will be void;
7: The form is simple to fill out: place your name in the top box then any nominated person in the relevant field.  If you are wanting to name more than one person for committee positions, then you may do so on another sheet and attach it to your nomination form. 
The committee is run entirely by committed volunteers and comprises 11 regular meetings on the first Monday of each month at the HQ (there is no January meeting).  If you feel that you are unable to attend at least 9 of the 11 meetings (either because of distance to travel to the HQ or known work commitments) it is advisable to hold off your own nomination.  Aside from the meetings the committee is actively involved in several events that require the dedication of the group to ensure the event’s success.  These include (for example) the setting up and manning of promotional booths at various events (e.g. SMPTE, AFTRS, etc.); the annual awards night (and run-up to it); the monthly drop-ins plus many, many, more ways to become actively involved within the society.
All age groups, membership categories and fields are encouraged to become involved.
The closing date for nominations is Thursday 18th August 2016 at midnight.  Any nominations received after this time will be void.  You can either return your completed nomination to me at [email protected] or you can mail it to the HQ – the address is both on the form and above.
All current committee and executive members are advised that they will need to submit a nomination for themselves if they wish to continue with the committee over the next year.
Warm regards to you all,
Steve Munro ACS NSW State Secretary
