Please RSVP for the AGM, or both AGM and Laborastory at Trybooking. [https://www.trybooking.com/YOZB] RSVP (before the 4th of November) is essential to join us as Laborastory – it often sells out!

 

Please come down, volunteer to join the committee if you want (see below for more details) and be part of our planning for 2019.

If you cannot attend the AGM you may wish to nominate a proxy prior to the event to vote on your behalf. You can nominate any ASC member based in Victoria as your proxy, but you both need to be financial members of the ASC. To nominate a proxy all you must do is complete the attached form and email us by 5pm on 7th of November 2018.


Only paid up ASC members can participate in the formal business parts of the evening, including electing Branch Committee. If you can’t make it on the night, do send along a proxy so your voice is heard.
