Annual General Meeting 2019

Members of the Traditional Cosmology society are invited to attend our Annual General Meeting on Friday 30th at 50 George Square, Room 2.14, Edinburgh, 15:00 – 16:30. E-members who wish to participate remotely should contact the Society beforehand at tradcossoc@gmail.com, so that a video-link can be arranged.

Over the past twelve months, a number of departures have left crucial positions within the Committee open. It is a great opportunity for new and
returning Members to become more involved in the running of the Society, and help to make our calendar of events more diverse and accessible to all.

Now more than ever therefore it is important for all our Members to make their presence felt, and offer their views and suggestions on the future of our Society.

Here is the tentative agenda for the meeting:

  • Welcome and Apologies
  • Minutes from the last AGM
  • President’s (Chair’s) Report
  • Treasurer’s Report
  • Election of the Committee
  • Membership Campaign for 2019-20
  • Expansion of Commitee
  • A.O.B

Minutes will be circulated after the meeting for those who could not attend.
