Hello reader
It's that time of the year our AGM is around the corner. As we are being told that a new COVID wave is about to hit us this winter we understand if you are hesitant to attend the AGM, but if this is the case, please complete the proxy vote form so we can form a quorum and hold the meeting. Or we will have to hold it again later in the year.

All details are below and on the website under the Members section and include:
  • Previous meeting minutes
  • Agenda
  • Both online and downloadable forms for nomination and proxies
  • Trash & Treasure Table booking
Registration for our Marks Over Time exhibition is now open - please register as soon as possible. This doesn't mean your pieces need to be finished now - it is for administrative purposes for TAFE, as is the deadline for your Artists Statements. Both of these dates are before the AGM - not our choice - so please don't wait until the AGM to renew your membership and submit for the exhibition.

Even if there is another huge wave of COVID the exhibition will go ahead as we have plans in place to mitigate contact. The opening night may be sacrificed if necessary. Fingers crossed it won't.

But on a brighter note we will still be having our annual Trash & Treasure, and importantly a morning tea to honour our Life members and welcome a new Life Member. We ask that you book your free table for Trash & Treasure, and please ensure that your goods are moth free as we had several complaints from last years event. If moths are found in your items we would expect that you would refund any money paid to the purchaser and remove the items from the hall immediately.

Please remember to login and renew first.

We look forward to seeing you.

All Committee positions become vacant at the AGM. Financial members are asked to elect members to the Committee of Management in the following positions; President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and not less than two other committee members. Members can nominate themselves or any other financial member who agrees to be nominated by completing the appropriate Nomination Form.

The new Associations Incorporation Act 2015 disqualifies certain persons from nominating as members of an Association’s Management Committee. Therefore by signing the nomination form, a nominee accepts the nomination and indicates that they are eligible to act as a member of the Committee of Management if elected. The following persons are disqualified:

1. An undischarged bankrupt or person whose affairs are under insolvency laws
2. A person who has been convicted, within or outside of WA, of:
i. An indictable offence in relation to the promotion, formation or management of a body corporate; or
ii. An offence involving fraud or dishonesty punishable by imprisonment for a period of not less than 3 months and where that person’s conviction or, if sentenced to a term of imprisonment, that person’s release from custody is 5 years ago or less; or
iii. An offence under section 127 The Associations Incorporation Act 2015, which is committed when an Association becomes or is insolvent when a debt is incurred by that Association, and immediately before the debt is incurred there are reasonable grounds to expect the Association is or will thereby become insolvent.
