ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING ON MONDAY 2 MARCH + NEW DOORPERSON NEEDED
Want to make a difference in the world, save lives or raise heaps of money for charity? If so, you’re probably better off volunteering your time elsewhere. But if you’re interested in helping out with the running of a cinema and Australia’s largest film society, this message is for you!
In case you didn’t know, the ANU Film Group is run by a dedicated and hard-working group of volunteers. Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on MONDAY 2 MARCH at 6 PM is where we report back to our members on how we did in the year just past, and what our plans are for the future. All members are welcome to come along and find out about the inner workings of the ANUFG or ask us any questions you might have.
The AGM is also an opportunity for members to get in on the action themselves by volunteering to join the ANUFG’s committee, as we select a new administration to guide us through the next 12 months. Being on the committee allows you to be involved in everything from film selection and booking to marketing, graphic design, communications, social media, fundraising, event planning and much more. It’s hard but rewarding work – and somebody’s gotta do it!
We are also on the lookout for a new doorperson to assist us at screenings. Doorpeople are the friendly faces of the Group who greet you as you enter, and scan your membership card. If you are a current member, punctual, have a cheerful disposition and are skilled in the fine art of card scanning, this may be for you!
As with committee positions, this is a volunteer position but doorpeople receive a free membership for the following season as a token of our thanks after satisfactorily completing a required number of sessions.
If you are keen to volunteer, have any questions or would simply like more information about the AGM or volunteering opportunities within the ANUFG, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
