Events 2022

7pm Monday 21 March: Annual General Meeting (AGM) 

As you all know, the formal business of an AGM includes the presentation and approval of reports, the election of a Committee to continue the work of the Group, and consideration of amendments to our Constitution.

Some more good news - most of the Committee are happy to continue for another year. However, I would encourage any member who thinks they might like to join the Committee to give it a go. Whether you have a particular role in mind or not, please put your yourself forward. Ideally, if you are thinking about it, it would be great if you could get in touch with me in advance to discuss your plans.

And the not so fun news - the Committee will be proposing a few amendments to the Constitution. None of these is particularly radical, but all are designed to help the organisation function slightly more efficiently and provide a slightly better service to its members. You will find the detailed wordings by following the hyperlink above.

The Zoom meeting link was issued to members on 19March 2022. If you would like to join the AGM please become a Member and we will send you the details.
