Please let us know if you are coming so that we can plan the catering.
The Council meets around seven times per year and the work is rewarding and interesting … and occasionally frustrating. You'll learn what goes on behind the scenes and make new friends into the bargain. If you feel you might be out of your depth, worry not; one of us will act as your mentor to help you with the few formalities. Don't be shy!
Please complete the nomination form, photocopy it if you would rather keep your NABO News intact, and then return it to Richard Carpenter, General Secretary, by 7th October. the form can be downloaded here.
If you don't have anyone to propose and second you, don't worry, just phone one of the Council members and we can sort that out for you. Please use the space on the nomination form for necessary declarations, or include on an attached sheet.
Please send the General Secretary any resolutions you wish put before the AGM meeting with the names of proposer and seconder by 7th Ocotber.
Resolutions for the AGM and Nominations must reach us by 7th October 2018.
