Annual General Meeting before JAFWA Screening

This it!
After mentioning it for the last couple of months, it is finally upon us!

Please be advised that on the 20th of July 2019 the Japanese Animation Fans of Western Australia will be holding it’s 2019 Annual General Meeting.

The meeting will be held at the Collins Street Centre in South Perth from 3:00pm onwards. The regular screening will commence afterwards, and during the dinner break the committee election will be held.

We request that all current members attend to meet quorum requirements and to have your voices heard!

If you have any matters you would like to have raised at the meeting, please email them through to Preferably sufficiently in advance so that we can deal with them.
Currently, this is the list of submitted AGM agenda items.

The JAFWA committee has a few constitutional amendments to make that requires the approval and voting by the JAFWA membership.

We look forward to seeing you there!


Below is the program for the evening of Saturday July 20th, 2019.

Thank you in advance for all attending the AGM, and sticking around for the election during the Dinner Break.
Not that we think we need to bribe you to attend this week, or any such thing, this will be more of a reward. This week we will have two preview items, one before the Dinner Break, one after the Late Break. Due to a mistake, at the last JAFWA session I suggested that we would have the first episode of “Dr Stone”. However, we now know that it is a double-length episode so we can’t fit it in next week, it will have to be August. Hopefully our replacement preview item will be acceptable.
