Our successful AGM on 6th May 2014 elected the following new Management Committee who look forward to working with the membership in the year ahead.
John Brydon (Chair)
David Harris (Secretary)
Sue Reece (Treasurer)
Ian Gibbins (Website and Facebook)
Paul Wilkins (Sponsorship)
We particularly acknowledge the work of Nigel Ford who will continue to manage development of our regional programmes.
We will seek volunteers from the membership to support other Friendly Street activities.
EVEN MORE UPDATED NOTICE!!
Attendance at the advertised AGM was so low the meeting was inquorate. Therefore, we will try again to run the AGM before the May FSP regular monthly meeting. The AGM addresses significant new business, most importantly to discuss and approve changes to the FSP constitution, as necessary for various statuary requirements and increased ease of operation of FSP in an uncertain funding climate. Given the strong support for change expressed in responses to the recent questionnaire and the low turnout for the initial AGM, this meeting should be uncontroversial and will not take long to seek formal approval for the changes.
Click on the links below to open or download PDF files relevant to the AGM, including proposed changes to the FSP Constitution, the results of the Members Survey, Motions to be put at the AGM regarding the Constitution, the Auditor’s Report, and a Nomination Form for membership of the FSP Committee of Membership.
Please keep an eye on the FSP Facebook page for any last minute info or updates.
