I hope that this communication finds you all well and that, particularly to those of you having to self isolate, you are finding things to occupy your time.
In line with the current curtailment of all ringing activity we are unfortunately postponing indefinitely our AGM. As soon as we are able to reconvene we shall of course make another announcement. The Annual Report which is well on its way to being printed will go ahead and we will be contacting you again shortly about how copies will be distributed. At the AGM we would of course be electing all of the officers of the association and as usual this year there are a small number of posts where the current incumbents have indicated that they do not wish to stand. Whilst all posts are available for the proposal of new officers, for those in particular where we anticipate a vacancy we may need to make some contingency plans and we are looking for people willing to be considered for these posts.
The vacancies we anticipate are: General Treasurer, Membership Secretary, Annual Report Secretary and one Trustee. If you feel that you could fulfil one of these posts or know of someone who may, please let us know. Job descriptions for most of these posts appear on the Role Descriptions page on this website. I am sure also that the existing incumbents would be pleased to give you more details, their contact details are on the Officers page and of course in the current Annual Report.
I hope that I will soon be able to post in a more positive vein! But maybe this lull in ringing activity gives us an opportunity to learn that method we’ve always promised ourselves we will. Please keep well and safe in these worrying times.
