2015 Annual General Meeting – Thursday 12th November at 10:30

agmAn Annual General Meeting for any organization should be the most important event in the year for its owners. As members of the BBC, you are its ‘owners’. The AGM is therefore your opportunity to get involved in the way your club is run. You will hear from the Committee about what has happened during the year, question them, elect next year’s officers and propose changes.

Before we start the meeting at 11:00 we will enjoy refreshments starting at 10:30!

Better this year!

To help you to do these things, the Committee has decided to make some changes this year. Firstly, the date has been deferred a little, until 12 November, so that the Treasurer can prepare and issue, in advance of the AGM, the financial report on our activities for the year up to the end of September.

This, together with the general report on our activities, and any proposals or recommendations from the Committee, will be issued to all members at least two weeks before the AGM, so that everyone can consider them in advance.  The AGM agenda and papers are here in the Members Area.  (If you have lost your password then please ‘click’ here)

We have also changed the timing of the AGM from the to 11:00 and it will be held at the British Consulate as usual. We hope the change of timing will be more convenient for more members.

If you have any suggestions regarding issues, which you would like to be considered at the AGM or if you are interested in serving on the Committee, then please let John, our President, know as soon as possible or include in the online booking form.
