The ABCSWS Annual General Meeting

The Association’s Annual General Meeting will be held on ‘sometime in January 2020’ at the usual place with entrance times between
1800 and the start of the meeting at 1830.

Light refreshments will be provided.

If the membership fee is not paid prior to the date of the AGM, membership shall be considered to have elapsed and attendance at the AGM will not be permitted.

The AGM is the forum for deep debate and discussions within the Association.

You are therefore encouraged to come with proposals and suggestions for events which the Association could hold throughout the year. We may not be able to accommodate them all but please don’t be shy about submitting your thoughts and ideas.

It would be interesting for the Committee to get feed-back from the membership regarding the Association as a whole so this is the time for praise and complaints to be brought out.

This is your Association and the Committee is the caretaker but you are the owners so come and make your voice heard!
