Perth Comic Arts Festival AGM Date & Membership Info

Perth Comic Arts Festival is a listed not-for-profit under the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profits Commission. This event has grown year on year as a result of offering opportunities to all comic makers and illustrators. PCAF is not owned and run by private interests, but by Western Australian creators and readers. As the festival is open to all – just like art should be – the organisation is now calling for new members and the election of Organising Committee members for PCAF 2020.

If you’re passionate about building the arts scene in Perth and gaining some impressive not-for-profit events management experience, please consider membership and running for one of the Festival’s elected positions.

Membership Info
Membership is $5 for one year and gives you a vote in the AGM, the right to run for an elected position or hold a prescribed role, the right to attend the organsing committee meetings and discounted PCAF events.

Please complete the membership form here and email to the current Secretary, Stuart Medley via email: perthcomicartsfestival@gmail.com.

Please ensure your payment has been made with the correct reference upon sending the completed form. The current committee will review all new applicants and confirm membership by 26 November 2019.

The AGM will be held on Saturday 7 December. An agenda and address will be sent to all confirmed members.
