Screening on Saturday 12th June 2021

This is it, the start of the official nomination period for the upcoming annual JAFWA election for the committee (see below). Already Audrey is preparing her platform around the assertion that there is too many isekai shows in the current program. Do you support her? Do you oppose this assertion?

It was a very successful Sausage sizzle we had at Bunnings Cannington last Saturday. Many thanks to everyone who participated. In the afternoon Sally was our chef extraordinaire, and she hopes to share her skills this week at JAFWA with a sausage mini-sizzle for all our attendees. Unless you are extremely vegan, you do not want to miss out on a sausage-in-a-bun cooked by Sally.

June gets off to a good start at JAFWA, as we have managed to sneak in one of the movies from our cancelled marathon screening in April. This is the sequesl to the TV series we screened at JAFWA a few years back, for those who you who have fond memories.

Annual General Meeting and Elections

Being an incorporated club, JAFWA needs to hold annual elections, which will be occurring in July.
Anyone can nominated to enter the elections, so long as they are:

  1. A fully registered and paid up member of JAFWA for 3 months before the election.

If you haven’t done so before, being involved in a non-for-profit organisational committee is a great way to learn some new skills and be a part of something great. The JAFWA committee hopes to see you at the AGM to discuss the progress of your club, and looks forward to any new blood and ideas for the future of JAFWA.
