Our AGM will take place
Saturday, 27th October 2018 at 9.30am

at the Loose Goose Restaurant 3/175 Ocean Drive at Twin Waters.

ALL members are welcome.


The main business of the meeting will be:

 All committee nominations must be received by the AFSC Secretary by 20th October 2018.
These can be sent to secretary@afsunshinecoast.org.au

The AFSC is currently taking nominations for the committee to be appointed at the upcoming Annual General Meeting on 27th October, 2018.   We welcome potential candidates from all the membership.   Nominees need to be members of the association, Francophile, but fluency in French is not needed as our meetings are in English. Nominees should be enthusiastic to participate actively in the work of the Committee and be reasonably IT literate.  In addition to our teaching program, we run a range of French cultural events so the following qualities are valuable for us:

•    Organisational skills, perhaps assisting the coordinator of our annual Sunshine Coast French Film Festival and other cultural events
•    Fundraising - sponsorships help keep our bank balance healthy
•    Financial literacy - such as bookkeeping perhaps assisting our Treasurer
•    Marketing such as preparation of advertising and flyers
•    Newsletter - assistance with the preparation of content..
We emphasise that the above qualities are desirable, but not essential.  Enthusiasm, flexibility and the ability to work in a team environment are more important than any specific quality.   If you would like to discuss nomination, please call our President, Jan Jarman on 0437 640 557.

Special Resolution for Changes to the Constitution - Membership Renewal Period: The following change is proposed to the constitution regarding the annual ordinary membership fee under “PART III -MEMBERSHIP, Clause 9 Fees, Subscriptions etc point (2)” to ensure compliance with the online membership renewal system recently implemented.
The current clause:

(2) The annual ordinary membership fee is payable-
(a) on or before the issue of the Member's membership card; and (b) on or before 31st December of the calendar year.
(3) The amount of the fee payable for life membership of the Association shall be determined by the Committee.”
Will be amended to read:
“9 Fee, subscriptions, etc
(1) The annual ordinary membership fee of the Association shall be such amount as is determined from time to time by the Committee.
(2) The annual ordinary membership fee is payable on or before the issue of the Member's membership;
(3) The amount of the fee payable for life membership of the Association shall be determined by the Committee.”
