LETTER TO MEMBERS - 10th May 2021
Letter from Branch Chairman, Mr. Leon Spence to members
Chairman: Mr Leon Spence
Deputy Chairman: Mr Stephen Warden
Dear Friends and Members,
I hope you are all well. I am writing this on the as we are on the verge of coming out of full lock-down. So, what is our future?
Re: Leicestershire Branch of the Royal Society of St. George. The Future?
The committee trust that this letter finds you in good spirits. We are nearing the time when our branch can recommence activities in some form. The first meeting must be an AGM to reboot the branch. Of course, the branch is managed by members, for the members. With this in mind, there are officer vacancies that will need to be occupied.
The committee are asking you to help us form a view to determine if there is sufficient support to firstly, hold an AGM and secondly, will there be sufficient officers to share the work of running the branch activities and committee meetings next year. There are two questions which we ask you to answer either by post or email to our secretary, Audrey.
Q1 The AGM is provisionally scheduled for Wednesday September 15th, 7.30pm. Venue to be announced. We have to discuss this with Countesthorpe Village Hall, and we are only just coming out of lockdown.
Are you intending to attend the AGM? Please let Audrey know by the end of April.
Q2 At present there is a vacancy for President for which the Deputy Chairman is prepared to be a candidate. We already have a prospective new Chairman as Leon will be standing down. The Treasurer, Geoff Warner, is to stand down at the AGM so we will need to elect a Treasurer. There may be other committee vacancies to fill. We also need new members as we are down to 11 “Branch Members” and 23 full members. The Society did away with the branch members only in 2010, except for those who are already in that scheme.
Would you be prepared to stand for election as a branch officer? Please let Audrey know.
Please stay safe.
