SCLA President Hari Kotrotsios, said the association was expecting the next year to be even better than the previous one.
The AGM begins at 6:30pm at Rivers Café on the corner of 2nd Avenue and The Esplanade in Cotton Tree, with light refreshments provided. The AGM is open to all current SCLA members and anyone who wishes to join on the day.
The meeting will discuss upcoming events and elect a new committee for 2010/2011. Nominations for committee positions are open as the SCLA is saying farewell to a few of its valuable committee members who are stepping aside due to work, family or travel commitments. Nominations can be made at the AGM or beforehand. Nomination forms are available in the AGM event listing at www.scliterary.org.
“The SCLA committee is responsible for organising all the association’s events and activities and without their hard work and dedication, the SCLA would not exist,” Hari said.
The Sunshine Coast Literary Association was formed in 2005 to encourage aspiring writers and enthusiasts to explore their interest and develop skills. The association offers regular workshops, seminars and events, an annual Writers Competition and monthly Front Write Up performance evenings that provide an opportunity to showcase the talents of its members. The SCLA also promotes other regional writing competitions that offer successful applicants great prizes and recognition.
“The SCLA is a wonderful resource for Sunshine Coast residents who are interested in pursuing a career in the literary field, “ said Hari.
“It offers people an opportunity to meet with like minded individuals and exchange ideas and advice that will assist them in developing their abilities”.
