Leading up to the AGM are various deadlines. The schedule is below:
• 30th March: Last date for nominations for the new committee and cut-off date for membership.
The society always needs members to volunteer to keep the society running. To become a committee member you only need to fill in a nomination form prefrably by the due date above and given to the Secretary (for practicality also any existing committee member). Forms can be posted, delivered or given by hand. Please read the form early to ensure the requirements are met in time, particularly ‘being a member’ and witness signatures.
• 13th April: Last day for AGM notification to members
The society will announce to all members the AGM date and venue. This will be done primarily by email, but for those not on email then contact will be attempted by telephone, else by post. Other methods will be by this website and the CAS Facebook.
• 20th April: Last date for issue of ballot papers
For application to become a committee member only. No action required by such member.
• 27th April: Last date for additional items for the agenda
