Dear Members,

The UNLSA will be holding its Annual General Meeting on 8 September 2016 at 6pm in the Life Sciences Theatre. Free pizza and drinks will be provided for those who attend.

The primary purpose of this meeting will be to present the operational and financial reports of the 2016 UNLSA committee and affirm the election of a new committee for the 2017 term. If you are a current member of the UNLSA and expect to be enrolled as a law student in the 2017 academic year you are eligible to nominate for a position on the incoming committee. If you wish to nominate for a position but are not yet a member of the UNLSA, you can join online at http://unlsa.joinform.com.au/. Nominations will close at Close of Business on 2 September 2016.

If you wish to nominate for a position, you will need to complete a nomination form and submit it to the ballot box outside the Law School Office in the McMullin Building. You will also need to email a brief profile to admin@unlsa.com. If you are nominating for an executive position, your profile should be no longer than one page. For director positions, your profile should be no longer than half a page. If you wish to submit a photo with your profile you may, but the photo must be factored into the length of your profile.

This year, voting for new committee members will take place online. All members of the UNLSA will receive an invitation to vote via the email address they provided when they joined. If you are not a member but wish to vote in the upcoming elections, you can join online at the joinform page noted above.

A document outlining the various positions on the UNLSA committee will be distributed in Week 3 of semester 2.

There will be an opportunity at the AGM to address any special business from members, and to nominate people for honorary membership of the UNLSA (nominees can be any person who has made a substantial contribution to the UNLSA). If you have any special business that you would like to raise at the AGM, or would like to make a nomination for honorary membership, please email the nature of the business or details of the nomination to admin@unlsa.com by no later than 5pm on 2 September 2016.

If you have any queries or questions regarding the AGM, please do not hesitate to contact our Vice President (Administration), Chris Laidler, at admin@unlsa.com

Yours Faithfully,

University of Newcastle Law Students’ Association
