Post EVAC AGM 4/6/10 - Eat, Vote, Adopt Constitution
That's right ladies and gentlemen, it's that time of year again, time for the EVAC AGM.

We will be ceasing normal gaming activities (4-8 pm in Harry Medlin North, Level 4 Union House) at 6.30pm and not resuming them until the conclusion of the meeting, which will be particularly special, as in addition to all the normal bits and pieces we will also be adopting a new constitution.

If you are currently on the member roll of the club, you will soon (within the next few hours)have also received this information via email, if you have not, you may assume that you are not yet registered with EVAC for 2010, a course of action that is greatly advisable (read:neccesary) if you intend to stand for one of the committee positions below (nominations may be posted here), vote for those standing for those positions or have a say in the ongoing direction of the club, and the costs ($5 for UofA students, $10 for non-students) allow us to buy new games and consoles to make EVAC even better. Please take the time to pay your money and register at one of the coming weekly meetings if you haven't already done so.

Agenda:

SAGA and SAGAFest

Tom Birdseye and Tom Allpress from StreetGeek talked to the membership about SAGA - the South Australian Gamer's Alliance - and its upcoming event, SAGAFest. They are aiming to form a broad coalition of Adelaide-based gaming clubs and organisations (currently including StreetGeek, AVCon and the Adelaide Uni Computer Science club) with the aim of running a social gaming event in July. EVAC had already been informally involved through the president and secretary, and there was general interest from the membership in association with the event. EVAC members who donate equipment or time were promised half-price admission; in addition, the club has been given two social passes and one LAN pass to distribute at its discretion.

President's Report

The club has continued with its standard activities, working with AVCon and running the usual O-week events along with the normal Friday gaming. The club has moved away from the AVCon forums and established its own site and forum thanks to Barron, which is a step towards further club activities.

Treasurer's Report

The club currently has $1254.42, split between the bank account and the cashbox. $45 is owed to the Clubs Association for associate members.

Purchases have been sparse in the last year - the club has bought Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario Kart Wii, Soul Calibur IV and a Dualshock 3 controller.


Inventory

A full inventory of club equipment was postponed until after AVCon.

Future purchases were discussed but postponed due to the possibility of the club having more funds post-AVCon.

The most-suggested purchase was a high-definition projector. A cheaper version is currently affordable, but a more powerful and expensive projector will likely depend on AVCon making a contribution to the purchase. The possibility of a club PS3 or XBox 360 was also raised and deferred until later.

Committee

It was proposed to create two general committee positions to act in an advisory capacity, with votes weighted equally to those of the existing committee (President, Treasurer, etc). The motion was passed seven votes to one (most of the membership abstained). Elections were then held for the five existing committee positions and the two new ones, with Chris Schlatter acting as returning officer.

President: Alethea Lim (the incumbent) and Mark Stoffels both nominated. Ale was re-elected, seven votes to five.

Treasurer: Adam Rees (the incumbent), Mark Stoffels and Chris Harris were nominated. Mark won with seven votes, with three votes going to Chris and two votes going to Adam.

Secretary: Shaun Zander was the only nominee and was elected unopposed, replacing John Scobie.

Librarian: John Scobie was the only nominee and was elected unopposed as a replacement for Chris Schlatter.

Clubs Association Delegate: Michael Barron was the only nominee and was elected unopposed, replacing Nick Catapano.

General Committee: Adam Rees, Neil Golding, Tom Diment, Dave Booth, Hugo Oks and James Picone were all nominated. Neil and Tom were elected with seven and six votes respectively - Adam, Dave, Hugo and James received one, three, four, and two votes respectively.

AVCon

Mitchell Chapman talked to the membership about AVCon. EVAC's history of association with AVCon is set to continue, with John Scobie acting as the convention's videogame coordinator and many of the club members planning to work as staff at AVCon.

In addition to the usual contribution of club equipment and membership for the convention, Mitchell approached the club for a loan in order to help AVCon with its financial difficulties. The membership tentatively approved a loan of $1200, on the condition that it is repaid immediately after AVCon. There was also an understanding that AVCon would reimburse the club beyond simple repayment, either in the form of additional money or a contribution to a club purchase - fine details of this will have to be postponed until after the convention in order to assess AVCon's financial standing. This issue will be resolved by the EVAC committee.

Other Business

Evacuation

Ale raised the idea of the club running a gaming event at the university early in 2010. It would be similar in format and size to the early AVCons - a few rooms in Union House with free gaming and tournaments. Further discussion was postponed.

Activities and recruitment

Several club members suggested organising more activities for the club. Dave pointed out that it would be a good idea to have more online club activities, particularly those making use of its Steam group. Other members suggested running more tournaments - Shaun in particular suggested having one "large" club event every month to two months. Discussion about further events was considered the responsibility of the committee and no more was talked about during the meeting.

Signatories to club account

It was agreed to change the signatories to the club account, as the current ones were somewhat outdated. Signatories changed from Alethea Lim, Adam Rees and Connell Wood to Alethea Lim, Mark Stoffels and Michael Barron.

With no further matters raised, the meeting finished at 7:30 PM

Post Re: EVAC AGM 4/6/10 - Eat, Vote, Adopt Constitution
Yo guys since I've just been alerted to the fact that the AGM is this Friday, please get your nominations for club committee positions here by then, please. Nominations will still be accepted on the day but your chances have historically been proven to be improved if your nomination appears before the AGM date.

Positions and current persons:
President - Alethea Lim
Treasurer - Mark Stoffels
Secretary - Shaun Zander (Acting Secretary - Tom Diment)
Clubs Association Delegate - Michael Barron
Librarian - John Scobie
General Committee Positions - Tom Diment, Neil Golding

If you have any questions about the responsibilities involved in these positions please feel free to ask in this thread, PM me or contact the person listed as currently filling that role.

And lastly, I do not currently intend to re-nominate for my current role as president.
Thanks guys, see you on Friday!

You quit your role as web guy, you never resigned from the committee...

Which is what I signed up to the committee as. I quit my position plain and simple. I am no longer part of the committee. I would also love if in future I'm not left to close up the club because "LOL UR ON COMMITTEE" while people rush off to the markets as if it's going to close at 8pm. It shouldn't be happening in general, as it's unfair to whoever it's done to and not very "club" like. :P

You were elected as a General Committee member, not as a Web Guy.

Regardless, you've made your point clear. I hope you now know how I felt all those times I quit from your committee but you didn't appreciate it fully.

<_<

[edit] How many times have you been left to close up the club btw? I don't remember not being among the last to leave usually.

I guess we both need to communicate things clearer then? :3

I've had it twice over the past year, last time being two weeks ago. Is there a rule for closing up? Is it about one person being around or what? Anyway, should be something decided during the session, rather than last minute "tag you're it".

Sure :3

As far as I recall there shouldn't be a need for anyone to stay behind for closing up. There's no longer anything valuable left behind that we need to take extra care with (like the projector in the past).

Basically, once everyone's ready to leave, at least one person should just do a quick sweep of the room to ensure that the place is tidy and that nothing has been left behind.

That works. Was just irritating the other week having people leave, then Thom saying "OH JUBSYOU HAVE TO CLOSE BECAUSE YOU'RE COMMITTEE", then running off before I could reply.
