DramaSoc AGM 2018

  • A6 Lecture Theatre University Dr Christchurch, Canterbury, 8041 New Zealand (map)


This is your chance to join the Club Exec

The DramaSoc AGM will be held at 1pm on Saturday the 29th of September in the A6 lecture theatre on the University campus.

The AGM is the most important event of the year, giving you the opportunity to be filled in on what has been happening throughout the year and the financial situation of the club, to have your say regarding changes to the constitution, and to run for Committee positions in 2019.

If you are interested in being in leadership positions within DramaSoc next year, this is the meeting to attend! Keep an eye on this event to learn more about what Committee roles typically entail.

Refreshments will be provided.


  • Welcome and introduction

  • Acceptance of 2017 AGM minutes

  • President's report

  • Treasurer's report

  • Discussion of problems surrounding selection of the second major show (Report can be found here)

  • Election of 2019 Committee

  • Constitutional amendments (Amendments can be found here)

  • General Business


  • We have received no nominations for Officer positions and so nominations will be taken from the floor of the AGM.

  • Nominees for any Committee position are encouraged to make it clear that they are running to the wider community so that those who are unable to attend can cast reasonable proxy votes.


We have no current pending nominations for life membership that have been approved by the Committee.

We will be accepting nominations to be considered for this AGM up until 12pm tomorrow. To do so, email secretary@dramasoc.org.nz with the person's name, whether or not you wish to remain anonymous, and a blurb about why they should be nominated and what they've done for the club.


The President has written a report (distinct from his main report) in which he discusses the controversies surrounding the selection of the second major show this year.

That document can be found here.
