NSW Special BrANCH Meeting (SBM)

Date: Tuesday 21 December, 2021

Venue: Online via Zoom

Time: 5:45pm for a 6:00pm start

Purpose for SBM

The NSW Branch Meeting (AGM) was on 23 November 2021. 

As there were no nominations received for NSW Branch Secretary before the closing date of 21 November 2021, nominations were received from the floor. It was also resolved that the NSW Committee will appoint a Vice-President. Accordingly, for the first time in NSW, the President will sit alongside a State Branch Vice-President and be assisted by the State Branch Secretary. Nominations were also received on the floor for the position of Vice-President. To ensure a fair election process, the NSW Committee resolved to open up the two positions for further nominations.

Eligibility to nominate

All NSW Members who were Members on or before 6 December 2021, are eligible to nominate themselves for either or both of the positions. 

Nominations must be submitted by Sunday 19 December 2021. The nomination form can be found on the event site (below) and must be emailed to the Returning Officer at nsw@aala.org.au
