Annual General Meeting 2014

This week is the Society’s Annual General Meeting.

Annual General Meeting

Annual General Meeting

It’s the night of the year where we plan what we as a Society will be aiming for over the next 12 months.

The success of the Society is the direct result of the time and passion that our members put into it. Even your questions and ideas can be a great help in making the Society better.

A number of the current committee are stepping down this year so this is an ideal time to get involved and help direct the future of the Society.

If you have any ideas or suggestions as to how the Society can continue to develop please come along.

We’ll also be running a photographic auction with our very own Chris Thome will returning as our ever entertaining auctioneer and master of bargains.

Hope to see you all there.

Meeting details

Everyone is welcome and your first two meetings as a guest to the Society are completely free of charge. Membership is at the reduced rate of £20 for the rest of the season or guests can continue to visit for just £3 per evening.
