Hi everyone,

An update on a few AGM-related matters:

The AGM is 6.00pm Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time on Friday 29 November 2013, with the physical meeting being held in the CPAS Green Couch Room at ANU, Canberra. (We will have more information shortly on a 'virtual' presence for the AGM - likely a Google Hangout.)

Presidential candidates will be announced after the close of nominations on Thursday 21 November. If you wish to nominate someone as President, you need to make the nomination, have the nominee’s agreement and have someone to second the nomination. All people involved need to be ASC members.

We are also seeking people who wish to be involved with shaping and leading Australian Science Communicators through roles on the Executive. Should you be interested in helping guide ASC and represent our members, please provide your name via a return email. All expressions of interest will be collated for consideration by the incoming President and the National Council. (The Executive is voted on and appointed by the National Council at the December National Council meeting held not long after the AGM.)

Instructions on proxies will be sent on Friday.

 The following two items have been added to the agenda:
- Discussion on the continuation of ASC-run conferences
- An update on the ‘professionalisation’ process for ASC and discussion on a code of ethics
