[NAT] Sommeliers Australia 2019 AGM
Date: August 18, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
The Sommeliers Australia 2019 National Annual General Meeting has been scheduled for Sunday 18 August, 1.30-3.30pm at Alfred Place in Melbourne.
The AGM will be followed by ‘Italian Summer’ the Victorian Chapter’s annual Gala event, where the new National Executive Committee will be announced.
Expressions of Interest
As a member of Sommeliers Australia the AGM is your opportunity to have a say in how Sommeliers Australia will be structured for the 2019/2020 year.
The National Executive Committee (NEC) is calling for expressions of interest from current members who are willing and able to commit their time to help manage the association at the National level.
Members of the NEC are selected from current State Chapter committees, meaning that interested members must be able to support the activities of Sommeliers Australia within their own state, in addition to managing the future vision of the association and working on National projects, such as the 2021 ASI Best Sommelier of Asia Oceania competition.
Without our dedicated volunteer Committee members, Sommeliers Australia would no longer be able to provide the education, scholarships and opportunities that are currently available.
2019 AGM Agenda
During the 2019 National AGM a new NEC will be elected from amongst the State Chapter Committees and nominated members. The agenda will also include business from the previous year and the vision for 2020 and beyond.
All financial members are welcome to attend and vote, however only Sommelier/Professional level members can nominate a proxy for voting.
PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to submit a nomination form please forward your completed form to the Administration Officer Imbi Knappstein via firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Tuesday 6 August, 4pm.
Completed proxy forms must be brought to the meeting by the nominated member or received by Administration Officer Imbi Knappstein via email@example.com, no later than Tuesday 6 August, 4pm.
