Notice of WRL Annual General Meeting
The Western Rock Lobster Council (WRL) 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) is scheduled for 10:00 am on Thursday, 13 October 2022 at the Geraldton Multipurpose Centre, 31 Foreshore Drive, Geraldton WA 6530.
Registration opens at 9:30 am and the meeting commences at 10:00 am. If you would like to attend, please RSVP for catering purposes to Katherine Chow at email@example.com before 7 October 2022.
Nominations for the election of Directors were opened on 25 August 2022 for two Northern Zone and three Southern Zone positions. On 8 September 2022, WRL completed the call for nominations for the election of Directors. The Rules of Association for WRL require an election every year, with half of the positions on the Board being declared vacant.
There were only two nominations for the two vacant positions in the Northern Zone. Therefore Bruce Cockman and Matt Fong have been re-elected as Directors.
There were five nominations for the three vacant positions in the Southern Zone. The candidates in order of nominations received are John Sloan, Mathew Thompson, Fedele Camarda, Corry Amato and Peter Stanich.
An election is required for Southern Zone and the ballot papers have been sent by mail to Southern Zone MFL holders. This was completed on 14 September 2022. The closing time/date for the election will be 4.00 pm Monday, 10 October 2022.
The declaration of the new Directors will be made at the 2022 AGM and will also be posted on the WRL website as soon as possible after the conclusion of the AGM.
