After e-mail exchanges with Alex, we have decided to switch the physical AGM to a Zoom meeting at 16.00 on Saturday 15 January 2022. Alex’s decision is explained in his message below:
“Dear Friends, I have decided to move the AGM to a Zoom meeting. I have taken this decision for several reasons. There have only been eight acceptances to date, and thirteen apologies, so there could to be a low turnout on the day, and with the uncertainty of what may or not develop over the next 10 days or so, I felt it needed decisive action sooner rather than later. Hilary has kindly offered to host the AGM on Zoom, but this needed to be actioned now. Finally, having had my own PCR testing positive, I didn’t feel happy mixing with folk a week on Saturday, even though I was legally allowed to do so. Alex”
This is an opportunity for all members to participate in the Branch AGM Zoom meeting. To join the AGM at 16.00 on Saturday 15 January 2022, please e-mail Hilary Hardie here at least 24 hours in advance and she will send you the link.
It is disappointing not to be holding the full AGM at Castor. It offered Branch members the opportunity physically to meet after, for some, a long time. As Secretary, I was particularly looking forward to meeting Tower Correspondents with whom I have communicated only by e-mail.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our Zoom AGM.
