Friday 30th May saw our first Annual General Meeting which passed rather quietly (thankfully after our difficulties earlier in the year!). As many of our members live quite a way away from us, we received lots of apologies but we were extremely pleased to receive many proxy votes with their supportive messages – thank you!
After an overview of the association news to date, we ran through the 2007 accounts and our plans for 2008 before re-electing the officers for the next year. With an overwhelming 95% of the votes cast (40 votes for, 2 votes abstaining) the existing officers were re-elected and the plans approved.
We were pleased to welcome French News to our AGM and we will be releasing a press release to the other media. Minutes of the AGM will be posted on the website and our members will be notified by e-mail.
