    10:30 to 11:30 – Green Protocol Talk  -
    At the AGM, we are seeking endorsement to make some changes to the ICOM Australia Rules of Procedure that will allow all our members to participate in the Annual General Meeting whether in person or online.  Over the past few years it has been harder and harder for us to get a quorum due to the COVID19 pandemic and the increasing costs associated with travel for many of our members. Additionally we are also proposing a motion to move our financial reporting to a financial year cycle rather than a calendar year.  This will allow us to meet our obligations under the Associations Act and provide better financial reporting for our members.  Notice of both motions must be circulated to all members 28 days in advance of the AGM – and so the detail of both motions proposed can be found here.

    We hope that you will be able to join us for the AGM in Melbourne in May to pass these important amendments.  If you cannot attend please ensure you nominate a proxy to vote in your stead so that we can reach a quorum at the meeting – the form to nominate a proxy is here.

    Hear from the National Gallery of Victoria's Director Tony Ellwood AM and Associate Director, Conservation Michael Varcoe-Cocks on the Gallery's Bizot Green Protocol Initiative and how the NGV is working towards addressing the environmental challenges faced by the museum industry. The presentation will be followed by a 15 minute Q&A session.

    We look forward to as many members joining us as possible whether in person or virtually.
