- Presentation of Annual Report (Chair) –
It’s been another great year, the meetups have really flourished and grown, the calendar is our most visited page on the website and the feedback has been really positive overall. We are moving ahead this year with a leaner committee but we still anticipate having another successful year as we continue to focus on our goals of helping to grow the pagan community in Victoria and help pagans find each other and events.
- Secretary’s Report –
Memberships have continued to climb in a fairly even fashion over the year, we now have over 200 registered members out there getting updates and newsletters. Pretty exciting, some of them are even from other states.
- Presentation of Accounts (Treasurer) –
This year was pretty quiet financially, with no events run that raised funds and the expenses faced by the organization (website maintenance etc.) being covered by members of the committee. The funds from the PayPal are going to be transferred across to the bank account.
- Election of Management Committee/Office Bearers –
Only one of the titled committee positions has received more than one nomination for the office, so with no objections being presented the uncontested positions of President, Treasurer and Secretary were awarded to the nominees with the title bearers being:
President – Josie H
Treasurer – Ryan M
Secretary – Mark H
The position of Vice-President received a two nominees all who were given a chance to speak at the meeting about themselves and the ideas they would like to bring to office. After this the proxies were counted and the committee voted to elect the Vice-President. The candidate with the most votes being Nikole was voted in.
It was decided that a new Executive Committee position would be made for Sarah this year – Event Co-Ordinator. This was passed unanimously.
For the general committee there were a total of 4 nominees, none of which were objected to. All were voted in. They were: Dorian, Shaz, Ange and Lucas.
