Transition Newcastle Inc Annual General Meeting

The Transition Newcastle Annual General Meeting will be held:

7:00 pm Wednesday 29 March 2017
155 Russell Road, New Lambton
For a shared meal (Please bring some food to share)

An important foundation of the Transition Network is community building and so we’ve decided to make our AGM this more of a social event. We are meeting at Lesley’s home for a shared meal at 7:00. This will be a chance to meet other people interested in sustainability and to informally discuss possibilities for the coming year.

Annual membership of Transition Newcastle is also now due.

The AGM will start at 8:00 pm with the following agenda:

  1. Confirmation of the Previous Minutes
  2. Convenor’s Report
  3. Treasurer’s Report
  4. Election of office bearers and committee
  5. Proposed changes to the Transition Newcastle rules, more commonly know as our constitution (see the draft of the proposed constitution)

It would help if you could let us know if you are planning to come by emailing

At the meeting we will be electing our office bearers and at least 2 committee members. The office bearers are:

  1. The Convenor
  2. The assistant convenor
  3. The Treasurer
  4. The Secretary

If you are interested in joining the committee please let us know. According to our current rules, nominations for office bearers and general committee meetings:

(a) must be made in writing, signed by 2 members of Transition Newcastle and accompanied by the written consent of the candidate (which may be endorsed on the form of the nomination), and
(b) must be delivered to the secretary of Transition Newcastle at least 7 days before the date fixed for the holding of the annual general meeting at which the election is to take place.

It is fine for written notification (including signature) to be made via email. So if you would like to join the committee we need to have a nomination by Wednesday 22 March.
