Notice of 2020 Annual General Meeting

In light of the COVID19 travel restrictions and other health requirements of the Australian and State governments currently in place and the temporary changes in legislation allowing the meetings to be held online, rather than face-to-face, the Executive Committee has decided, in the interests of the health and safety of members and other stakeholders, to hold this year's meeting virtually.

Information on how to participate and to obtain / lodge an election form, will be posted here and emailed to all members.

The agenda of the meeting is as follows:

ITEM 1: Welcome and opening by the President of the AFFM

ITEM 2: Apologies for noting

ITEM 3: Minutes for approval - AGM held at The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Hobart, 25 October 2019

You can vote ahead of the meeting. Given election of office bearers will be determined by way of a poll, and the virtual nature of the meeting, we recommend you utilise this method of voting ahead of the meeting. Details will be distributed by end of November 2020.

If you have any questions about the AGM, please contact the Secretary via email
