Wellington AGM nominations (Postponed to 16th October 2020)

Important Update
Following the postponement of the National AGM the Wellington AGM will also be postponed. This means the nomination period for the Wellington Committee will be extended.

Further details below.

NZLARPS Wellington is holding their AGM on 9th October, 2020 Friday 16th October, 2020, to coincide with the National AGM. This will be held at 16 Hill Grove, Naenae, Wellington. If you intend to attend in person please let @lesbiancobra know so she can manage numbers around whatever alert level we’re in by then.

The plan is to participate in the National AGM via google meets from 6.30pm, and the Wellington AGM will start once the National AGM is completed, at around 7:00pm.

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: wellington.secretary@nzlarps.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 18:30, October 2nd, 2020 18:30 Friday October 9th, 2020. Information on electronic voting will be sent when nominations close. Nominees must also accept their nominations by this time.
