2015 Annual General Meeting

Yep, it's that time already. The Anime and Manga Club will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in a few weeks and it's a great chance for those who want to find out how we operate, and have a say on how we will run in the future.

The main activity is deciding who gets to be on the 2014-2015 committee. More importantly, there will be FREE pizza and drinks. Let me repeat for emphasis. Free. Food.

...guess I'll see you there.

Date: Tuesday March 24

Time: 12:45pm till 2:00pm

Place: Latham Theatre, Redmond Barry (the Tuesday screening room)

Every current club member is eligible for a general committee position, but Exec positions are only for students of the University. Every committee position will be vacant and need to be filled at the AGM and as such, it is fair game to anyone who wants to have a go and help out with running the club. The positions are listed below:

Executive Committee:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary

General Committee:

  • Librarian
  • Publications
  • Art Director
  • Liaison Officer
  • Web Master

Nominations for all these positions will be open at the AGM but should you be unable to attend and still want to nominate yourself for any of these positions, please email [email protected] with your name, contact details, and any speech that you want read at the AGM. If you wish to know more about the roles of any of the above positions, again don't hesitate to email the President on the above email address.

Also linked below are two very important documents. These outline crucial information about the AGM and the club so we strongly encourage everyone who is planning to attend to read them. These documents are:

Agenda - A description of what will happen during the AGM, topics that will be discussed and how the meeting will be structured.

Current Constitution - The pillars upon which this club stands on; I suggest reading it (or not).

The Treasurer's Report will be distributed at the meeting, and details all the financial dealings of the club since the last AGM.

Regards, Your AMC Committee

Hiya, It's time for... another event!  We're doing a movie night this coming Wednesday (18/03), and we'll be doing Redline, the movie that took MADHOUSE seven years to make... and is definitely worth it.

As per usual, expect a Pocky and a drink (we won't run out this time, promise!) to all attendees.

8:45PM Thursday, 5 March 2015

We're doing another event - this one will be a discussion shindig where we talk about manga, anime, and whatever takes our fancy. It should be fun, so come along.
Date: Thursday March 12
Time: 2:15pm to 5pm
Location: Joe Napolitano B, second floor of Union House (two floors up from the ground, or three from the basement).

Hope to see you there - and yes, you'll get a free Pocky just for showing up.

While we're at it, I should mention that for the next two weeks we'll be doing two and a half episodes of each show at each screening (except Samurai Flamenco on Fridays; check here if you need a reminder about what we're screening).

Oh, and don't forget to join up on Facebook if you feel the need.

Welcome all!
The year is beginning, and it's time for a little meet-and-greet. Play games, meet new people, eat some donburis (trust me, they're good) and have some fun.

Date: Friday March 6

Time: 6pm to 9pm

Location: Members Lounge, Union House (that place on the ground floor near the food court and North Court with the TV and bean bags)

You can join the club on the night (use this form to make things easier), and you get $5 off donburis if you are a member (and membership's $5? This seems like a good plan...). Donburis can be ordered up until 11:59pm Thursday March 5 via this form, or you might be able to squeeze your order in late if you get to Members Lounge before around 5:30pm on the night and ask us really nicely.
