Dear AAA Member,
Welcome to our 2021 Annual General Meeting which is being held via Zoom. We are starting at 6pm and aim to finish before 7pm when our "Poetic Finale" begins.
Our AGM programme will run from 6pm as follows:

John Watkins, Editor of AAA Gazette online newsletter
- Co-options to the Board (Honorary Secretary to explain)
- Voting for Board membership. As well as those named above, the following are seeking re-election:
During the year, two valued Board members, Alison Carter and Patrick Wilson, stood down from the Board, and I have expressed our thanks to them in my Report to this Meeting. Fjoralba Miraka remains on the Board, but does not need to stand this year for re-election, having been co-opted by the Board during 2020 and her position on the Board (for 3 years) having been ratified at the 2020 AGM ( which was held on 29 September 2020).
Hon Sec Patricia Swire will oversee the voting with assistance from Board members.
- Points raised from the Zoom floor; discussion
- End of Meeting
7pm "Poetic Finale"
