Welcome to all the new members of ANUAGS- you’ve joined one of the best Societies at ANU so you’re in for a great year! And welcome back to all the old members- don’t forget that membership fees are due and you’ll need to rejoin for 2014 to participate in our events.
Don’t forget to join our facebook group and follow our twitter @anu_anime. We’re also developing our page on the new ANUSA Club and Society network here so student members should keep an eye out for that.
Our regular events have already started for 2014- with Console gaming every Monday night and Anime screenings every Wednesday and Friday. Plus Boardgaming, Handheld gaming and PC gaming every Wednesday and Friday while the anime screenings are running. Plus we have a Minecraft server- email us to get whitelisted. For all the details check out our website- anime info can be found here and gaming info here.
Please note that while the Monday Gaming and Wednesday Anime start this week (the 17th and 19th of Feb respectively), the Friday Anime doesn’t start until the 28th of Feb. That’s because on the 21st we are going to Laser Tag! It will be at Zone 3 in Belconnen and be $10 for three games. It will start at 6:40pm- if you are late you will miss the safety briefing and will not be able to play. So don’t be late. RSVP to the facebook event which has all the details and prepay at a Screenings event to secure your place.
Just to reiterate- THERE WILL NOT BE ANY ANIME SCREENINGS ON THE 21ST OF FEB and DON’T BE LATE TO LASER TAG.
We will also be holding our AGM on Friday the 28th of February, during the Friday screenings at 6pm (we will pause the Screenings while the AGM is on). It will start at 6pm, there 2013 Executive will report to the Society what has happened and we will elect an Executive Committee for 2014. Our Constitution explains the process for holding AGMs and electing the Executive so give it a read before the AGM. The positions that of the Executive are:
President- responsible for running the Society and overseeing all the activities
Secretary- responsible for maintaining the Society’s records and organizing General Meetings and Executive meetings
Treasurer- responsible for maintaining and organizing the Society’s finances
