Call for General Councillors
The Executive is now calling for nominations for the five positions of General Councillor to
complete the inaugural nine-person Council.
The five General Councillors will be determined by a ballot of all members and the new Council
will be endorsed on 8th July 2014, at the 2014 AGM of the Society, to be held in association with the AESC in Newcastle.
There are two types of Councillor: Division Councillor and General Councillor.
Each Council will have four Division Councillors and five General Councillors.
The GSA Council Election process includes essential information regarding the process,
interpretation and references to the Rules, timeline and nomination information.
This information applies to both the Division and General Councillor.
The Division Councillor Nomination Form is the form to be used for all nominations.
If you are in the Victoria Division, please use the Division Councillor form.
The General Councillor Nomination Form is the form to be used for all general nominations.
Contact Sue Fletcher or Laurie Hutton for more information.
This is your Society and your opportunity to have a voice in the future direction.

Australian Earth Sciences Convention
Registrations now open
Please book your accommodation when registering as accommodation is tight in Newcastle.
There is another event on in Newcastle during the AESC which will mean accommodation will be extremely hard to come by. The Secretariat has block bookings in place at a number of hotels however all unsold rooms must be released back to the hotels 30 days prior to the convention. We highly recommend you book your accommodation sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
