One of the advantages of requiring bookings to be made via Eventbrite is that we get an idea of the number of people likely to attend an event. For the AGM at 18:00 BST on Thursday 7 July it is clear that we do not yet have enough members booked to enable us to hope to achieve the quorum requirements (The constitution requires a minimum of 20 members being present).
To avoid the necessity of having to reconvene the meeting, please can more members try to attend this year's AGM!

Thursday 7 July, 18:00 BST - ONLINE - Annual General Meeting - MEMBERS ONLY
The AGM is listed on Eventbrite as a private meeting and so is not searchable. A direct link to the register for the meeting is provided above. The registration page is password protected, the password is included in the AGM paperwork that was sent out with the Spring News File.
