Further to our recent announcement, we will be holding our regular Annual General Meeting (AGM) at 14:30 on Saturday 4 November 2023, at The Hercules, 2 Kennington Road, London SE1 7BL.
The meeting will hear reports from the President, Secretary and Treasurer on the club’s performance and activities during the year as well as plans for the coming months.  Members will have an opportunity to submit questions to the Committee.
The meeting is open to all members, but spaces are obviously limited.  In order to manage the available capacity and to help us plan, if you are going to attend, please reserve your free place using this LINK.   Last year, we were not able to offer everyone who wanted to attend a place, but then a very considerable number of the people who had reserved places failed to turn up on the day.  Please only book a ticket if you are definitely planning to attend. Tickets will be available until 23:50 on 1 November 2023 unless “sold out” beforehand.  Please note that if you do not register by the deadline you may not be granted access to the meeting.  
This meeting is open to members only, so please do not bring or invite guests.
Owing to technical limitations, this year’s meeting will not be live-streamed and so will only be available to members attending in person. 
The meeting will hear reports from the President, Secretary and Treasurer including a summary of the club’s activities over the last year, an update on membership numbers and demographics as well as details of the club’s financial position.  Those attending will be asked to vote on accepting these reports.  Members unable to attend in person may appoint either the  President or another named (attending) member as their proxy by writing to the Secretary at giving details of their appointment.  The deadline for submitting proxy appointments is 23:59 on 1 November 2023.  Please clearly indicate “PROXY APPOINTMENT” in the subject line of your email.
Members may also submit questions for the Committee.  These should be sent by email to by 23:59 on 1 November 2023 with the words “AGM QUESTION” in the message subject line. Please also indicate if you are happy for your name to be disclosed to the meeting when dealing with your question.
Finally, if you plan to attend the meeting, please make sure that you have renewed your membership as appropriate by the end of this month.
