The Society’s Annual General Meeting

Held on the 17th of September via the video conferencing application Zoom, over 40 members got on-line to take part….and it went pretty well. Two new Trustees (Margaret Keating and Roger Seddon) were voted in. Margaret is our Membership Secretary with Roger taking on the daunting task as our ‘Legal Advisor’. Only Richard Walton’s 3 year tenure as one of the current batch of Trustees was up, and he got the ‘nod ‘as well. We were delighted to welcome to the team Mike Williams, as a co-opted Trustee, and he comes  with an impeccable Financial pedigree. We took the opportunity to update our Constitution and whilst these changes were important they didn’t really excite any of the attendees ! The important matter of our Financial Year end (31st of March) Accounts we’re presented and approved unanimously. The highlight was a Powerpoint Presentation showcasing the Society’s previous 12 months ‘in pictures’. It complimented our Chairman’s otherwise somewhat mundane annual review….only joking Jim.

So, all our hard work in preparing the Society’s first ever (and hopefully the last) ‘virtual’ AGM was certainly worth it with the proceedings passing smoothly.

Thanks to those of you who ‘attended’ and roll on next year !
