If you want to get more involved in the running of the ANU Film Group, or simply want to find out more about how it’s done, be sure to mark MONDAY 21 MARCH in your calendar because that’s the date of our upcoming Annual General Meeting!
In case you didn’t know, the ANUFG is run by a team of hard-working volunteers and the AGM is a chance for you to get in on the action by joining our new administration for the next 12 months. All members are invited ¬– and encouraged – to come along to hear about how we did in the past year and what our plans are for the future.
The meeting will be held in person in the Kambri Cinema on Monday 21 March from 6 pm onwards.
Want to know more about what being a committee member entails? Or are you keen to put your hand up but can’t make it to the meeting? Drop us a line at email@example.com and we’d be more than happy to let you know more.
