|From Tim Gale, Secretary General:
The 2024 AGM will be held on Saturday 9 March 2024 from 1.30 pm until 5 pm at the National Army Museum, Royal Hospital Road, London SW3 4HT. As the AGM is free to members, I will not be issuing tickets but it would be useful to know how many members will be attending. I would therefore be grateful if you could let me know in advance if you will be attending the AGM.
At the 2023 AGM the President announced his intention to step down from the role after five years in office. We are therefore seeking nominations for this post and any member that wishes to stand for the role of President or propose another member for this role should contact the Secretary-General in writing before 10 February 2024. Nominations must have a proposer & seconder and must include an expression of the willingness of the candidate to stand. The proposer and seconder must be members that have paid their subscription for 2024. If you are interested but unsure of the responsibilities of the role of President, please contact myself or Bill Philpott for clarification.
There are also places on the General Committee, so if you wish to serve on the GC, please get your nomination in by 10 February, with the name of your proposer & seconder.
Finally, this is your chance to place a motion before the 2024 AGM. Should you wish to do so, it must be with me by 10 February. You may not need a seconder for your motion, as seconders can often be found at the meeting. However, that is not guaranteed and it is advisable to have a seconder lined up if you want to ensure that your motion is debated.
|Please contact me at email@example.com if you need clarification on any of these procedures.
The President’s Dinner last year had to be postponed because of rail strikes, so it will now take place on the evening of the AGM, 9 March at 7pm. The cost will be £80 per head for food & wine and it will be at the Beaujolais Club, 25 Litchfield Street, London, WC2H 9NJ. Further details to follow but I would be grateful if you could let me know if you wish to attend before the end of January.
