Online AGM 2020
Our May Newsletter warned that alternative arrangements for this year’s AGM would probably be necessary. With the continuing Government restrictions affecting the gathering of large groups of people resulting from the Coronavirus pandemic, our AGM, planned for 7th September, will not go ahead. Adopting guidance issued by the Third Age Trust, the AGM will now be conducted, adhering to normal AGM procedures, by the current elected Committee on Monday 21st September at 11.00 on Zoom.
Any questions you wish to raise arising from the 2019 AGM minutes, which were included in the April issue of ‘Update’, should be sent to the Secretary to arrive no later than Wednesday 16th September. You will receive a response to your query following the meeting. Any member who wishes to view the AGM (view only, no audio input for members) via Zoom should contact Jim Dwyer (firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive an invitation.
