The 2011 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Victorian Chapter of IABC will be held on Thursday, 18 August commencing 17:30 prompt at Christies Offices, 454 Collins St, Melbourne.

- Confirm the minutes of the preceding AGM or special general meeting
- Receive Committee reports on activities of the Association during the preceding financial year

- Nomination for Board form

- Job description for Vice President (only)
- Job description for Board roles
Nominations will close on Friday, 22 July 2011 and should be sent to me at email@example.com with a copy of the nominee’s Curriculum Vitae.
I would also like to take the opportunity to mention that the Board is always looking for volunteers outside that of the Board positions. Please do make yourself known to any of the Board members of your interest or contact us via http://vic.iabc.com/contact-us/.
In line with previous years, the IABC Victoria will establish a Nominations Committee to ensure that the nominations process is transparent without impacting on the privacy of our members. This process proves very beneficial to all parties involved and will, therefore, be adhered to for the 2011 AGM. It is important that representation on the Board consists of the right people in the right positions to ensure value for our members.
Representatives on the nominations committee change annually to ensure ongoing transparency of proceedings. The nominations committee will comprise of:
- Two representatives (volunteers) from our membership base (non current board members)
- The Public Officer
- Past President
- President-elect (VP)
- Current President (non voting)
All members are welcome to participate in the AGM including those who are nominating themselves for Board positions. If you are planning to attend, please inform Jen Quilty on firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, 8 August at the very latest.
Chapter President, IABC Victoria
