An Annual General Meeting is something member lead associations must do yearly to remain transparent to their members and get feedback on their direction. Basically it's a time to clarify what ANZCA has done, what we're planning for the upcoming year and especially for you to have your say!!
This last year, you must admit has been EPIC!! There has been a massive jump forward in the amount of circus content in our fringes and on our stages, new spaces and studios have been popping up and it has felt like momentum is building for our awesome industry!
Many of you are receiving this email after filling out the Circus Census earlier this year and indicating you would like to be kept in the loop. If you don't want to receive any further communications then feel free to unsubscribe at the bottom of this email.

Anyone can video chat into the AGM from anywhere in the world... either chat to your local school and ask them to host a gathering or grab some friends and host a gathering at your house!! The video software can't cope with endless connections so gather as many people as you can then get in contact with us!
WHAT WILL WE COVER?
Firstly we celebrate some of the fine achievements of the circus sector for the last 12 months! We then chat a little bit about what ANZCA has done and what we plan to do in the upcoming year. Nominations open for three spots in the Steering Committee then the treasurer tells us briefly how money is looking for ANZCA.
Then we get into the good bits; we hear from Evelyn Coulson, the amazing lady who designed the Aotearoa Circus Census 2019, we hear from one of the Mentee's of last years Mentorship Program, we hear about some key national and international relationships Rosalie Ducharme and Eve Gordon are developing, and then we get to vote!
We want your guidance with some of the action plans for this coming year and so we've put together some options to vote on so we can head in the right direction!
