First of all, thank you to everyone who made 2021’s Perth Comic Arts Festival the delight that it was! The impact that
Covid-19 has had on our lives, particularly the arts is still something we’re all coming to terms with. To see so many
aspects of our community come together for a medium we all love is something worth cherishing. Now, on to the
details for this year’s AGM!
We’re always happy to get new talent in to build the festival. New member applications can be sent in alongside
nominations. (Form)

On arrival at the meeting, members should check the register of members and if needed, update their name, address and
any other details.
The 2022 PCAF Festival Organising Committee will be elected by the membership. Only members are eligible to
nominate for positions and to vote. Dependent on a resolution passing, there will be 12 committee member roles for the
2022 Festival. If any positions are unfilled, they can be filled by casual vacancy.
At the AGM, a new Festival Chair, Deputy Chair, Secretary and Treasurer will be elected separately from successful
Organising Committee members.
Nominees are asked to prepare a pre-written statement not exceeding 200 words detailing how they would be
an excellent fit for each position.
