North East England Branch AGM - Sunday 27 January 2019, 3.30pm
The Northumbrian Piper, Fawdon Close, Gosforth. NE3 2AH
Writing this as your Acting Chairman I am not going to dwell on the past but look to the future. A record of our various activities over the last year has been communicated to you all through regular emails, Branch reports in Deer journal and feature in the newsletters on our Branch page of the BDS website. I would make special mention of our Muntjac evening held in September with Graham Downing which resulted in many positive comments and was judged a great success.
The Branch finances are fairly sound, we started 2018 with £2,741 and ended with £2,535 in the Branch account. As usual a sheet outlining the finances will be available to members at the AGM.
The current committee is willing to continue and comprises of:
Andrew Collinson has been kind enough to volunteer his services as Branch Treasurer for which we are very grateful.
Vacancies exist for Chair, Secretary and additional committee members.
Nominations please, for committee and the vacant officer posts by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
As outlined in the Branch Handbook any member wishing to be elected requires nomination by two Branch members not less than 21 days prior to the AGM.
Much of this year’s AGM will be devoted to the future of the Branch and with that in mind the committee has decided to suspend the awarding of Trophies and the Ridley award.
I trust as many members as possible will attend this crucial meeting.
