RGA Annual General Meeting
Our constitution requires us to hold an AGM every academic year however, in the light of the COVID-19 restrictions, the board has taken the decision to postpone the meeting until the new academic year, and the current board members will continue to act until that time.
The constitution also requires us to agree a membership fee that will be confirmed by resolution at the AGM. Last year, the Chair explained how the RGA is developing and expanding its roles, and flagged the likely need to increase annual membership fees. The Treasurer’s Report shows running costs of room hire, refreshments and Clerking exceed the current income, with reserves spent on the design, build and deployment of our new website. The executive committee will, therefore, be recommending an increase to the annual membership fee to £50 (£30 nurseries) from September. Please contact the Chair if you have any comments to make.
The date of the AGM will be shown in the events box below, and members will receive an email invitation.
