AGM business

The formal business of the AGM will be brief, consisting mainly of:

  • Short reports from some of this year’s officers.
  • Motions. To propose a motion, please try to submit it to the Co-ordinator phone 501050 by Sunday 28 October.
  • Elections. To nominate someone for a post, please try to notify the Co-ordinator phone 501050 by Sunday 28 October.


Nominations are welcomed for any of the elected posts. There are currently twelve posts, filled by eleven people (see Elected Officers.

On a personal note, I have decided not to stand for re-election as Co-ordinator this year. I have enjoyed the honour since the post was created at our first AGM in 1996. Although I am very much planning to stay involved with the Campaign (including Newsletter production, amongst other things), I am ready for a break from the day-to-day running of the organisation.

Even though I am not going to be disappearing altogether, I would like to take this opportunity to thank for their hard work the many Campaign members who have made it the effective and, I believe, respected organisation that it is today.
