Central London Humanists report to European Humanist Federation's General Assembly
UTRECHT, MAY 24, 2012
My name is Josh Kutchinsky. I am the membership and e-reminders organiser of the Central London Humanist group and its official representative to this assembly.
I have been asked by our committee, on behalf of our members, to pass on greetings and good wishes to all the member organisation of the European Humanist Federation and to all who are attending the GA and the associated conference.
The Central London Humanist Group is a partner group of the British Humanist Association. Our membership falls into two categories voting and non-voting. To be a voting member you are required to be a paid up member of the national organisation, the BHA. We have over 200 voting members. Voting and Non-voting members join us either on our meetup or facebook group. We have over 1000 non-voting members. We are pleased with the range and diversity of our membership which we believe reflects the cosmopolitan nature of the UK's capital city.
In the last year we have:
held 12 talks or lectures
gone on 6 walks
enjoyed 10 book group meetings
marched, rallied or supported 6 campaigning events
seen 2 film shows
visited 2 places of interest - Darwin's house and a cartoon museum
socialised at 8 lunches, 1 picnic, I Yuletide party and 19 get-togethers
We are proud to be founding organisers of the Campaign for a Secular Europe.
Our Constitution states as one of its aims that our group is to engage with national and international humanist organisations, thereby providing our members with information and access to a wider world of humanist interest and cooperation.
We are pleased to continue our membership of the EHF
