In light of updates from the State Library Victoria (where we are located) that it is extending its closure to the public, the Writers Victoria Committee of Management has made the decision to reschedule our 2020 AGM to Wednesday 27 May and conduct the AGM online.
The AGM agenda, plus all Committee of Management special resolutions prepared for the meeting, will still hold.
