Screening on Saturday 10th July 2021

Come all ye wonderful (yet masked) JAFWA members, for this is the final week to nominate for the upcoming annual JAFWA election (see below) and join the committee, in order to steer JAFWA towards its glorious future. Decide upon your election strategies, such as suggesting that there are too many isekai shows in the current program. Nominees will be invited to the next JAFWA committee meeting to see how it is done.

Though, thanks to WA fighting off the Pandemic, there won’t be much in the way of limitations on how many people can attend JAFWA this week. There is less need to advise that you arrive early to ensure one of our numerous seats (or even one of the bean bags). We are being optimistic that West Australians will avoid further lockdowns (however facemasks and sanitising will still be required).

It will be the usual program, minus one regular item to allow us to preview a first episode of a new and interesting anime. Inadvertent time travel to prevent a tragedy and defeat crime.

Japanese 2022 calendars are starting to show up on pre-order. Anybody interested in doing a bulk order this year?

Annual General Meeting and Elections

Being an incorporated club, JAFWA is required to hold annual elections, which will be occurring on July 17th.
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.
  2. Resident of WA.

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.

Covid-19 Safety Precautions

We continue taking precautions to limit the possible future waves of CoVid-19, and we ask that you co-operate and even help where possible with our efforts to keep you safe – some social distancing, extra cleaning with antiseptic, library under limited access, etc. Also, we must ask that anyone unfortunate enough to be infected to not attend JAFWA until they are contagion free.
