NZLARPS Wellington is holding their AGM on 18th October, 2017, to coincide with the National AGM. Level 7, 13-27 Manners Street, Wellington CBD. The plan is to participate in the national AGM via google hangouts from 7pm, and the Wellington AGM will start once the national AGM is completed, at around 7:30pm. The venue requires someone to let you in, so it is best to assemble outside on Manners St at around 6:50 (alternatively, gather in the pub nextdoor beforehand).(NOTE: This date has been changed from the previously advertised date of 11th October. We apologise for any inconvenience)
Aside from administrative reports, a major function of the AGM will be to elect the new committee for the Wellington region. Nominations for the positions will be accepted in this thread, on the Facebook thread in the NZLARPS group, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations must be put forward and seconded by current NZLARPS members. Please note that the nominee does not need to currently be a member, but must be by the time of the AGM.
The deadline for nominations is October 11th, 2017. Information on electronic voting will be sent when nominations close. Nominees must also accept their nominations by this time.
Due to electronic voting, we will not accept nominations from the floor.
