ARF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETINGS

Nov 30, 2015

ARF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING – 7.30pm DICKSON TRADIES, 19 NOVEMBER 2018

ARF CALLING ALL MEMBERS – WE NEED YOU!

The end of the calendar year is fast approaching and our Annual General Meeting is nearly upon us. 

One of the key actions at the AGM is the formation of the new ARF Committee (2018) and this year we are again looking for new members (see links to AGM documents further down the page).  

So if you’ve been thinking about it – now is the time to act!

The ARF Rules have provisions allowing nominations for all positions every year – and allow for an election to be held where there are more nominations than positions.

What skills do you need to be an ARF Committee member?

You need to like dogs!

ARF is looking for people who already have experience in ARF activities and a good knowledge of how the organisation works.

We are also on the lookout for people with strong dog skills, be they in fostering or in training. 

People with skills and experience in fundraising, communication, financial/budgetary and governance are also needed. 

Committee members play important roles as chairs of sub-committees.  Under the ARF Rules you need to be a member of the Committee to chair one of the sub-committees.

We are always on the look out of ARF members to be members of sub-committees!

There is no time limit for nominating to be a sub-committee member, but don’t let that hold you back – if you have been thinking about it now is the time!

IF…..

…being on committees isn’t quite what you had in mind….remember we are always on the lookout for folk to help with other ARF activities.

If you want to chat to anyone about committees, sub-committees or volunteering, drop a line to secretary@fosterdogs.org

When does all this happen?

The ARF Annual General Meeting will be held at 7.30pm on 19 November at Dickson Tradies, 2 Badham Street, Dickson ACT

Nominations for the ARF Committee close on 1 November 2018.

Nomination forms should be returned to secretary@fosterdogs.org or to PO Box 1308, Woden, ACT 2606 by 1 November 2018.
