POWA AGM and Election, 6th November 2022

POWA Committee’s 2021/2022 year winds to a close.

As such, POWA will be holding this year’s Annual General Meeting. We will cover POWA’s activities in the 2021/2022 year, and be saying goodbye to its committee as we hold our election.

The AGM will be held at Joondalup’s Upstairs Meeting Rooms, starting at approximately 2pm, after the conclusion of the SGM held to vote on proposed changes to the constitution.

This event is a member-only event, and you must have an active POWA membership to attend. If your POWA Membership has lapsed or wish to purchase it for the first time, please do so at our regular screenings or, if unable to make it before the event, inform us ahead of time and we will have one prepared for you.

This event will be FREE to attend, but no raffle prize will be offered. Food, Drink and the Memberships will be available for Purchase.

If you want to raise a topic of discussion or otherwise have questions, but cannot attend the meeting, please email us at POWAClub@gmail.com or contact us on Facebook – we will discuss your queries and topics during the meeting.

After the end of the year’s recap, we will close the meeting with POWA’s Election. Those who have nominated themselves will present themselves to the gathering for a short question and answer panel, followed by a vote held by those present.

If you want to nominate yourself for a spot on the Committee, please Email us at POWAClub@gmail.com with your name and your expression of interest. If you are unable to attend the meeting, but still want to nominate, you may run in absentia – you will have a few extra steps to fulfil, but still be able to run.

SGM for Constitutional Amendment, 6th November 2022

As announced at POWAs last few screenings, POWA’s 2022/2023 committee has decided to propose amendments for the POWA Constitution and as such, have announced a Special General Meeting to take place on the 6th November 2022.

This meeting will be held starting 1:30pm Sunday, held at Joondalup Library’s upstairs meeting rooms.

The proposed amendments, highlighted in yellow in version 4.2, are now available for viewing with this link.

For a reference point to previous Constitutions, here is the current version, in 4.1.

For an outline of what has been changed;

Section 6.II has had a reference to “Students” removed.

Section 9.III.i has had a reference related to Edith Cowan University removed.

Section 9.III.ii has been added.

You must attend the SGM to vote for or against the proposed amendments to the constitution. You must have an active POWA membership to attend the SGM, but be aware that Membership can be purchased at the table before the meeting starts. We will not be discussing the changes to the constitution at the SGM, so be sure to read and understand the changes ahead of time.

As always, feel free to reach out to the committee should you have questions either via Facebook, Discord, or by emailing us at POWAClub@gmail.com.

Do note that POWA’s AGM will be held on the same day. For information regarding that meeting, please see here.

POWA Screening, 23rd October 2022

Location: Joondalup Library, Upstairs Meeting Room

POWA’s regular weekly screenings continue!

Last week, we finished up the romantic entanglements of ‘My Next Life as a Villainess’ so we are on the lookout for a new Comedy series to replace it! There is a suggestion thread on our Facebook group, an open form on our website and now for the first time, a forum channel on our Discord where members can suggest shows that the Committee will nominate for the vote! In addition, members will be able to vote if we continue with our Mature show ‘Claymore’.

Next month, the club’s Committee Year is also coming to an end, and thus we’ll be looking for new committee nominations! If you want to lead the club into the New Year, send an expression of interest email to powaclub@gmail.com to get more details. The election for our new Committee will take place on Sunday, November 6th at our AGM held in the Library.
If you’re interested in learning more before you put your name down, either ask a Committee Member or take a look at our Constitution and Election Regulation documents here.
