The AGM will be held on Tuesday, 21 August at 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start in Meeting Room 1, Millwell Road Community Centre, Maroochydore and will discuss upcoming events and elect the new committee.
SCLA President Bryan Ward said the meeting would give community members the opportunity to get more involved in the association by joining the committee.
With all the members of the committee intending to resign from their current positions, the SCLA is calling for interested individuals to fill their roles. Nominations can be made at the meeting or beforehand. Online nomination forms are available in the AGM event listing at www.scliterary.org.
“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 a core group of dedicated volunteers the association will cease to exist,” Bryan said.
The AGM is open to all current committee members and anybody who wishes to join on the day; refreshments will be provided.
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.
“The SCLA is a wonderful resource for Sunshine Coast residents who are interested in honing their creativity in the literary field,” Bryan said.
