Annual General Meetings

2017 AGM

The 2017 APSA AGM will be held at 9am on Tuesday 26 September, 2017 at the Pullman Melbourne Albert Park in Room Grand 1-2 as part of the 2017 APSA Conference.

The agenda for the meeting is here and accompanying documents, including the 2016 minutes (draft; to be confirmed at meeting) are here. The Executive Committee nomination forms are available below.

Elections for APSA Executive Committtee membership will be taking place at this year's AGM. APSA is now calling for nominations for the positions of:

  • Vice President/President Elect for the term 2017-20 (this is a three-year term comprising three consecutive one-year terms of Vice President, President, and Immediate Past President) - Nomination Form 

If you are interested in either position, or would like to nominate someone else, please complete the relevant nomination form, and please note that the completed form must include the signature of the person being nominated, to indicate their agreement to run for the position. Nomination forms should be returned to Arts-SSPS-APSA@unimelb.edu.au by 5pm on Friday 22 September, 2017 or bring the completed form with you if attending the AGM.

Forms will also be available at the AGM and, while nominations can also be made from the floor,  we encourage members to complete their nominations before the AGM to help facilitate a smooth election.

In the event that there is more than one nomination for either position, voting will occur immediately following the AGM via Survey Monkey.

The APSA Executive encourages nominations from candidates for Vice President who have a different gender identification to the incumbent President. This convention of almost 20 years reflects APSA’s commitment to ensuring diversity in the leadership of the Association. The incoming President from September 2017, Professor A J Brown, identifies as male, so in this call we encourage nominations and support for candidates who identify as other than male.

The Executive will also propose an amendment to the APSA Constitution at this year’s AGM to better embed this important convention.
