Updated 9:08pm 7th September
Nominations have closed
The ASRA AGM is here, and we are looking for Board nominations.
We announced the AGM for Sunday 26th August at 3pm however, the nomination forms did not make it online. We are changing the date to Sunday 9nd September at 3pm. This should give enough time for nominations.
All board positions are available: President, Vice president, Treasurer, Secretary and General Board position.
You need to be a financial member to nominate yourself. The form has membership dropdown fields so you first select yourself from the list of members, and then at the bottom you need to be endorsed by two members. If you are using the printed form, get those members to sign the form or you can print their names on the form. Otherwise, use the online form, and select their name.
If you are having problems with the form, please let me know.
How does the nomination work?
You need to be a financial ASRA member to be nominated. Having a member profile on this website does not counted. Current members are listed below. If you are not on that list you are not a financial member. If you have just recently paid or join, the list is manually updated, it might take a day to appear. If there is a delay please email firstname.lastname@example.org

How does the voting work?
There will be a vote this year, we dont know how that is going to work. At this stage the idea is to email financial members on Sunday morning and they can cast a vote by return email before 1 or 2pm Sunday afternoon, so we can count the votes and announce before AGM. There will be proxy forms, that will announced tomorrow (Thursday or Friday).

THIS IS THE CURRENT FINANCIAL MEMBER LIST
There are a few notes. Some members might be listed under who has paid their membership (like their mum). Some members we have lost contact with and we will be retiring their membership. Some members have cancelled their subscription but the membership is still active until their year subscription ends.
If you think you should be on this list, let me know. If your mum, dad or super hero name is listed instead of your real name, I can fix that as well.
