Victorian Annual General Meeting

You are invited to the 2020 Victorian ACS Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held on the 11th of June via Zoom, with more details to come closer to the date,

The formal procedure at the AGM is that the current committee stands down and a new committee is then elected. 

We are always keen to hear from members who are interested in joining and now is a great time to contribute your ideas!

Please consider carefully the roles and the responsibility that is required if you are interested in nominating. The role of a committee member is one that does require time, commitment and responsibility but is a great opportunity to be involved in shaping the future of your ACS.
