The Annual General Meeting of the Educational Computing Association of Western Australia (Inc) is usually held in Term Four of the Western Australian school year, but may be held at another time if so decided by the ECAWA Committee.
The Committee will always give members as much fore-warning of the Annual General Meeting as possible, and is required by the ECAWA Rules to give a minimum of 15 school days notice of the AGM.
Details of the ECAWA AGM will be posted on this website, as well as sent to members at the email address registered with ECAWA. The information will usually be sent out via @ECAWA and @ECAWASecretary on Twitter as well.
Please be sure to keep your contact details up to date as ECAWeb and email are our primary means of keeping ECAWA Members informed.
Please direct any queries about ECAWA Annual General Meetings to the Secretary: firstname.lastname@example.org
The ECAWA 2016 Annual General Meeting
The most recent AGM was held in March 2017. This was still considered the ECAWA 2016 Annual General Meeting, and was held on Wednesday the 29th of March 2017 as this was considered a time more convenient for members to attend, rather than the previous Term 4 date. The title ‘ECAWA 2016 Annual General Meeting’ still appears on documents for this reason.
Full details of the Agenda, as well as links to nomination forms and other information were made available to members on this page (as below) as the meeting approached, and were forwarded to members by email and included in LOGIN Light.
Date: Wednesday the 29th of March
Time: from 4.00pm for a meeting to start at 4.30pm
Venue: ECU Mount Lawley Campus Building 16, Room 126 (16:126)
