We have had annual general meeting and as usual it was not massively supported. Due to proxies we did have a quorum.

All committee members were re-elected and we are delighted to welcome Marilyn Mittman to the committee.

We now have a record size committee and I hope we can match that with a record number of embership. You can also renew/pay for membership or individual lecture fee via www.buytickets.gi.

We still have a great season to look forward to. We almost also have all of the following season planned. If you want to see the topics, please click on ‘forthcoming season 2016/17′. or indeed the poster to the left.
