SMASH! Sydney Manga and Anime Show is organised by SMASH Inc, an incorporated not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to create an open and affordable event for fans which encourages art, creativity and community involvement. SMASH Inc has a three-tier organisational structure:
The board is a 7-member team elected at the annual general meeting by the members of the organisation. It appoints the Management and guides the overall direction of the organisation. The board also runs smaller focus groups with different portfolios to ensure the organisation runs smoothly.
Our 2016-17 Board consists of:
Chair, Audit and Compliance
Steven Zhu - Chair, Board Projects
Assistant Secretary (non-board role)
The casual vacancy created in February 2017 for the seventh board member is not filled.
Our management is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the convention. The executive committee consists of our President and Executive Directors, leading a team of directors responsible for each of their departments.
Our 2017 management team consisted of:
Exhibitors & Sponsors
Staff are sort of like super volunteers. Staff members are organised by department and work on a particular aspect of the convention.
