Annual General Meeting resolutions

Resolutions that occurred during the AGM on July 17th include:

  1. Experiment with earlier hours during the coldest part of Winter. We changed the bookings for August for this trial, now completed. – Resolution 19 to 2 that we should have 1 hour earlier starting next May through to August.
  2. Have a celebratory Dinner for the JAFWA committee members and general members, to be held on the evening of Saturday December 18th 2021, in lieu of a screening.
  3. New mascot design – will try asking at the next Artist’s Alley.
  4. Tell people they can sponsor an anime night.

We will be attempting to implement these as soon as practical.

Currently we are looking for suggestions for a location for the dinner, and we are taking expressions of interest for attendees.
We will need to make the booking by the end of October, so places and attendance by then.

JAFWA member Roy has submitted an interesting design for the logo which is under review. Any other budding artists at JAFWA who want to gives it a try?
