The AGM is open to all current committee members and anybody who wishes to join on the day; refreshments will be provided.
Nominations can be made at the meeting or beforehand. Online nomination forms are available in the AGM event listing at www.scliterary.org.
While some members of the committee will nominate again for their current positions, Vice President Andrew Thelander, Treasurer Graham Paterson and Secretary Andrea Storey are standing down due to work, family or travel commitments.
SCLA President Bryan Ward said the meeting will give community members the opportunity to get more involved in the association by joining the committee.
“The leadership committee plays an important role as they are responsible for organising all of the association’s events and activities,” Bryan said.
“The SCLA committee is vital to the future of the association and without their dedication it will cease to exist,” Bryan said.
Formed in 2005, the SCLA provides a pathway for the Sunshine Coast’s aspiring writers and enthusiasts to explore their interests, develop skills and showcase their work. It allows like-minded individuals to exchange ideas and seek advice to develop their abilities.
The association offers regular literary workshops, seminars and events, awards programs and monthly Front Write Up literary performance evenings that provide an opportunity to showcase the talents of members. The SCLA also promotes other state and national writing competitions that offer successful applicants great prizes and recognition.
