The Annual General Meeting of Contemporary Music Victoria Inc. ('Music Victoria') will be held at the offices of Music Victoria, Level 1, 49 Tope Street, South Melbourne, Victoria, 3205 from 6:00pm sharp, Thursday 7 December 2017 (doors from 5.30pm).

All current financial members of Music Victoria are welcome and encouraged to attend. If your membership has lapsed, you must renew by Wednesday 22 November 2017 if you wish to attend or vote at the AGM.

Members of Music Victoria who are financial members as at 23 November 2017 are eligible to vote in the election of members of the Committee of Management ('Board'). Note there is one vote per membership (e.g. one vote per individual membership, and one vote if you have a band, small business, non-profit, corporate, gold or platinum membership).

Members will be able to vote on the election of four (4) members to the Board.

Members will also vote on amendments to the Rules of Association of Music Victoria ('Rules'), namely updating the Rules to refer to committee members/directors of Music Victoria, collectively, as 'the Board', instead of 'Committee of Management'.
