Meet the Nominees
Four events are happening to give ACT Greens members the chance to meet their nominees for preselection.
Please note these events are for members only. Please RSVP to help with this.
The ACT Greens 2015 Annual General Meeting will take place on 12 September, from 2pm, at the Canberra Seniors Centre, 10 Watson Street, Turner ACT 2612. The agenda is available here. The second half of the AGM will include a forum on light rail hosted by Shane Rattenbury.
Please RSVP online here: http://www.actgreens.org.au/2015_agm
Due to the concurrent preselection process, the AGM on September 12th will not include Office Bearer elections. Instead the AGM will be adjourned and re-opened at a subsequent date once preselection has been finalised.
All members are welcome to attend General Meetings and Coordinating Meetings. Typically General Meetings and Coordination Meetings are held on the third and fourth Monday of each month, respectively.
