Revised AGM Notice (new date: November 5th 2017 from 2-4PM @ Cherrybrook Community Centre

Notice of Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Sri Lanka Association of NSW Inc. PO Box 3120, Sydney NSW 2001 – 0404042113

Dearest members:

As you are now aware it is time for the SLANSW AGM. Regretfully, we had to postpone our originally planned date due to the following reasons:

a) Under recommendation and pursuant to discussions between the President and former office-bearers, the committee has decided that further opportunity should be afforded to our membership to construe their level of participation in the Association (joining the incoming committee etc). To this end, and for customary reasons, an application for committee membership* has been annexed to this notice (Annexure A);

b) It was further decided that for the avoidance of doubt the exact activities on the day be itemised in this notice (within an agenda) and not merely referred to, and therefore;

c) As a matter of courtesy, we wish to afford the aforementioned consideration by rescheduling.

*Please note that nomination of candidates for the election of office bearers of the Association must be made in writing, signed by two members of the Association and accompanied by the written consent of the candidate (which may be endorsed on the application) and delivered to the Secretary of the Association, not less than 14 days before the date for the holding of the AGM—at which the election is to take place.

The 2016/17 committee wishes to wholeheartedly apologise for any possible inconvenience caused.



Pursuant to Section 28 of our Constitution, we would like to announce the holding of an Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held on the 5th of November 2017 from 2-4PM at Redgum Hall at the Cherrybrook Community Centre. Pursuant to section 26.2 of the Association’s Constitution, we will be discussing the year that we have had and to plan for the future per the following agenda.
