2013 AGM - Monday 19 August 17:30

Posted on: July 16, 2013 - 20:42 By: dave

The 2013 NZOSS Annual General Meeting will be on Monday 19 August starting at 17:30.

We will "meet" online via IRC (Internet Relay Chat - there are free IRC clients for every platform) in the #nzoss room on irc.freenode.net - we will be discussing the agenda further on our OpenChat mailing list.

Anyone may take part in the AGM, but only financial members can vote for officers, councillors, or on any other issues.

You are invited to nominate yourself or someone else for one of these elected roles:

  • President
  • Vice-president
  • Councillor (we elect at least 13)

The roles of Secretary and Treasurer are typically appointed from among the councillors. There are no geographic requirements for officers or councillors of the society, although we prefer them to live in NZ to make communication and possible face-to-face meetings easier. Note that, in the spirit of our community organisation, all of these roles are voluntary (i.e. unpaid).

You can use our online contact form to submit nominations (choose "Secretary" as the Category).

I encourage you to consult our Constitution if you'd like to familiarise yourself with the elected positions, their responsibilities, and our purpose and processes.
