The AGM will begin at 12.30pm BST.

In order to make the meeting as accessible as possible, the Association is also hoping to arrange a Zoom link for those wishing to participate that way.

Also, to help organisers, if you are intending to attend in person on the day, please also drop James an email.

The main business of the AGM will be to receive an annual report and the annual accounts; appoint auditors; and to elect the Officers and Committee for 2023/24.

Please note the following:

In line with the SJA Constitution, motions not already published for inclusion in the agenda must be proposed and seconded by full members and submitted to the Secretary in writing no later than 7 (seven) days before the date of the meeting.

The election of Officers and Committee members will also be conducted at the AGM.

The SJA welcomes anyone who believes they can contribute to the work of the Association to put themselves forward as a prospective Committee member.

It would greatly assist planning for the meeting if applicants could advise the Secretary seven days before, submitting a brief biography.

Please note – members in all categories are welcome to attend, but only Full members are entitled to vote in any election.
