It’s that time of year again – time for our Annual General Meeting! We truly value our Members and want to share with you what we’ve been up to and how your membership dollars help. We’d also love to spend some time with you, and give you the chance to meet and hang out with other New Melbourne Browncoats members.

This year’s AGM will be held at The Boatbuilders Yard in South Wharf on Saturday, 22nd November at 10am. We’ll be holding the AGM from 10–11am, then having lunch afterwards. We would love for all members to attend, and friends are welcome too.

The AGM involves the presentation of reports from the Committee of Management (COM) about what we’ve been up to during the past financial year, the election of the COM for the following year, and a chance for you to ask questions and raise issues (see the Articles of Incorporation for more info on your rights as a member). Please note that only members may participate in voting and you should make sure you have your dogtags with you if you wish to vote.

If you think you’d like to become more involved, you’re invited to nominate for any position on the COM, or volunteer to be part of a Sub-Committee. COM roles are President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and General Member. In 2015, the Sub-Committees are CSTS, Sereniversity Event, Cabin in the Woods Event and Browncoat Booth (our presence at conventions). Nomination information for COM positions has been sent to members, so check your emails, and if you’d like to volunteer for a Sub-Committee just let us know!

We hope to see you there!

Anthea Wright is an amazing Australian artist, and this stunning Kaylee piece is just the start of her Firefly inspired collection! Anthea was showcasing her work at Armageddon Expo this weekend, and we were lucky to see in progress sketches of some of her upcoming Firefly pieces, including Zoe and Wash pieces. She’s an artist to watch, and definitely worth checking out!

In fact, we’ve got one of her gorgeous Kaylee bookmarks to give away! For your chance to win just email outfitters@newmelbournebrowncoats.com and tell us your favourite Kaylee moment. Entries close on Friday 24 October.

Join us on Halloween for an evening of drinks, giveaways and shindiggery! Festivities begin at the not-so-witching-hour of 6:30pm in the green by the Melbourne Convention Centre and will continue at the Boat Builder’s Yard on the banks of the Yarra. With PAXAus taking place right next door, we’ll be in nerdvana central!

Strut your stuff in your best costume (whether Whedon-inspired or otherwise) in our Costume Contest! Show us your best evil genius laugh in the Dr Horrible’s Evil Laugh Competition, and spend some cashy money on our Halloween inspired Lucky Dip! You’ll be in with a chance to score from our prize stash valued at over $200!

Time: 6:30pm – late
Location: Meet beside Polly Woodside (look out for our banner), with drinks to follow at the Boatbuilder’s Yard (2A Clarendon Street, Melbourne VIC 3006)
