Annual General Meeting

Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Genealogical Society of Queensland Inc. will be held on Saturday 4 November 2017, commencing at 10:00am sharp, at 25 Stackpole Street,  4122.

All members are asked to consider nominating for a committee position as some current members are not planning on re-nominating this year. 

Geoff Doherty, the current President, will not be re-nominating in October 2018 (assuming he is re-elected this year, 2017) as his commitment was for three years only. The society will need a new president then.  If you think you have presidential capacities and want a year’s familiarity with the committee, then now is the time to nominate.

If attending, please notify GSQ at info@gsq.org.au – this is for seating and morning tea arrangements.

Nominations

At the AGM, all positions on the Management Committee are declared vacant and then an election held (where necessary) for positions on the Management Committee (members and office bearers) for the following year.

Only current financial members of the society are eligible to make nominations (sign nomination forms) or accept a nomination. A nomination for the position of member or office bearer of the Management Committee must be supported and signed by two members who are not the nominee.

A nominee for the position of member or office bearer of the Management Committee must accept the nomination by signing the acceptance clause on the nomination form.

Where there are contested positions nominees may be required to provide up to a 200 word statement prior to the AGM, for circulation to the membership in attendance at the AGM. In these circumstances nominees will also be provided with an opportunity to briefly address the AGM.

Each financial member of the Association (individual or organisation) who is present at the AGM, or by proxy, has one vote.

Meetings of the Management Committee are usually held at 9:00 am on the second Saturday of the month, 11 times per year at the GSQ Resource Centre 25 Stackpole St, Wishart 4122
