A reminder that our next AGM will be held online from Monday 15th until Sunday 30th of June, with the new committee to be announced at the start of July. In advance, we are calling for nominations for all positions, closing at 5pm this Friday 12th of June. We would like to add another position this year for a postgraduate representative whose primary responsibility would be to advocate for our postgraduate members.
Two documents are provided below outlining position descriptions, together with the AWAWS Rules. If you would like to nominate yourself or another member, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 12th of June. Include in that email the 1) nominee's name, 2) institution and 3) the position for which you are nominating. If you are nominating another member, please first seek their approval. All nominees must be financial members of the organization.
If only one nomination for a position is received, then the society's Rules state that the nominee is deemed to be elected. For those positions where more than one nomination is received, voting will open on Monday 15th of June. Voting will take place online at the same time as the AGM.
Finally, there will be a handover period so any incoming committee members will be guided through relevant responsibilities. This is a recurring commitment throughout the year, but it is not overly burdensome, and it is an excellent opportunity to develop working relationships with scholars throughout New Zealand and Australia.
If you have any questions with regard to the AGM, please feel free to email Anastasia Bakogianni, AWAWS Secretary.
With very best wishes in these challenging times,
The AWAWS Executive Committee
