The current position as at the date of this newsletter is:
Committee: John Bishop (Secretary), Mark Cowie (Ordinary Member), Patrick Culshaw (Treasurer and Public Officer), Michael Meszaros (Vice-President), Marija Patterson (Ordinary Member), Geoff Williams (President).
Coordinators: Mark Cowie (Tesselaar Exhibition); Patrick Culshaw (MIFGS Exhibition); Gillian Govan (Activities); Jenny Rickards (Herring Island Exhibition, Newsletter and Website); Kay Salehi (Membership).
Coordinator Positions vacant: Annual Exhibition; Donor Funding; Publicity.
In addition, we will need a Coordinator for Activities from January 2010, and the Newsletter, as soon as possible.
To avoid curtailment of Association exhibitions and activities, members are asked to check their diaries to try to help the above as much as possible – in meeting the work needs as well as filling vacant positions.
Last year we took three priorities at the beginning of the term of office of the new Committee. The following are presented as priorities for the forthcoming year:
• Expand Coordinator and Committee numbers;
• Re-design and re-build the ASV web site;
• Build a complete set of ASV policy guidelines;
Alberto Martinez, an IT web-site specialist, has been appointed as a first step to meet the second priority above.
We also aim to have a little fun and do some sculpture. Members are reminded of Mark Cowie’s Tesselaar Exhibition opening 16 September.
The first Committee meeting in the new term is Wednesday September 2, so if you have a burning issue please contact a Committee member ASAP.
