FAWQ Annual General Meeting (AGM) @ North Lakes Community Centre, Meeting Room 2
Mar 9 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Welcome Members and all interested parties to the FAWQ AGM.

Most would be aware that since our 2021 centenary festival the group, for varying reasons, has faced critical problems.

However, the good news is, we will build to a bigger and better servant to emerging and accomplished authors, commencing in 2024.

We have accomplished nominees for the rolls of President, Secretary and Treasurer, and a handful of members, willing to serve as Committee Members in 2024.

We could use all the hands on deck as committee Members to propel FAWQ to new heights going forward.

Please join us in our endeavors, see you at the meeting. Links to details and nomination forms are below.

If interested, please bring your signed nomination form to the meeting, or send with your proxy.
