Notes

  • Nominations must be signed by two current members of the Shed.
  • Nominations may only be made from the floor at the AGM if there are insufficient written nominations.
  • The position of Public Officer is appointed (not elected) and remains in office until a new appointment is made and registered with NSW Fair Trading. (This is specified in the Associations Incorporation Act.)
