OFC AGM 2020

This year, as we are sure that you will all understand, we are unable to hold our normal AGM due to the social distancing measures required under the Covid-19 pandemic regulations. So instead it will be conducted online and by email/post. We are, however, very keen for our membership to have the opportunity to take part as usual.

So, welcome everyone to the Orkney Field Club’s 2020 AGM which opens on Monday 28th September and will conclude at 12 noon on Monday 12th October.

Please see the following linked documents -  (Unless we hear otherwise from you, we will assume your acceptance of these documents)

a) Minutes of the last (2019) AGM

b) The Chair’s summary of the year’s activities and  

 c) The Treasurer’s report and accounts for period 1st April 2019 to 31st March 2020

We welcome questions on any of these items, but ask that you get them to us (through jenny@jtlarch.co.uk) by 7th October so that we can ensure any additional information requested can be circulated to the whole membership.
