Minutes of 2017 AGM

Matters Arising

Officers’ Reports: Chairman; Secretary; Treasurer; Membership Secretary; Editor; Webmaster

Election of Officers / Committee: [The post of President is vacant due to the recent death of Jean Powrie. Janet Welham after many years of service to the society is standing aside]. Data Protection members data and lays down stricter controls on access to such information and its use. [Access to such data (membership lists) must be limited to as few officers as possible. All members, including existing ones who have not previously given such permission, will have to opt in to the society storing their data.] Activities (meetings /visits) for 2018/2019

Planning for the future of the society: Every society requires new recruits to the management team. In recent years we have been lucky and attracted a number of new committee members. However, some officers, notably the chairman and secretary have been in post for about a decade and feel that perhaps it will be time next year for a change. New committee members are always welcome. Duties are not onerous. Ideas and help in organising events would be welcome. The only formal meeting is at the study weekend. If you can’t attend this year’s weekend but wish to volunteer to stand for the committee, please let the secretary at rb193@btinternet.com know and provide a short cv and indicate what help you can offer the society.

Any Other Business

Ruth Barbour (Secretary)
