In this Annual General Meeting we will be holding elections for a new treasurer for the SDEA Committee 2019-2021, following the stepping down of the previous elected treasurer.
Committee member Fazli Ahmad has been holding the role of interim treasurer until himself or a new official treasurer is elected at this AGM. The official treasurer for the period of 2020-2021 has to be elected by the membership, and will hold the role until the term of the current committee ends at AGM 2021.
If you would like to join the committee as our elected treasurer, or would like to nominate someone who is suitable, read more below.
