The 3rd AGM of the Freethought Student Alliance will be held on:
Tuesday February 12th, 2013
At 8:00pm EDT (7:00pm EST, 7:30pm CDT & 5:00pm WST).
The AGM will be held online via Google+ Hangout, with members and affiliated groups able to view and participate in the meeting via our official YouTube Channel.
The meeting will consist of a report by the President, Secretary and Treasurer as well as the election of the executive committee and state convenors.
Jason Ball, President of the Freethought Student Alliance, has announced he will not be nominating for re-election, and said in a statement to members:
It is with both sadness and excitement that I announce that I will be stepping down as President of the Freethought Student Alliance at the upcoming AGM. It has been a pleasure to lead the organisation since its inception over the past three years and an honour to work alongside some of the brightest young people involved in the freethought movement today.
As you may know, I have been personally involved in a campaign calling on the Australian Football League (AFL) to do more to tackle homophobia. In 2013 I will be focusing my efforts in my new role as a Community Champion for No To Homophobia and also as an ambassador for beyondblue – the national depression initiative.
I also believe the time has come to inject new life and enthusiasm into the Freethought Student Alliance – so what better way to do that than to step aside and allow a new generation of leaders to stand up.
