THE CAMBRIDGE SOCIETY OF LONDON
NOTICE OF GENERAL MEETING
The Committee of the Cambridge Society of London gives notice of a General Meeting of members, and you are invited to attend.
The Meeting will start at 7.15pm (1915 hours)
Fitzrovia Room, International Students House
229 Great Portland Street W1W 5PN
(1 minute’s walk from Great Portland St tube)
Thursday 2nd December 2010
The main purpose of the meeting is to vote into full time membership of the Committee three Society members who are currently co-opted.
The background to this is that with the sad death of our previous Secretary Sandy Ross-Macdonald, and in light of the rapid increase and variety of London-Cambridge organisations in the capital, the Committee wishes (a) to increase the Committee membership and (b) to bring in new ideas, expertise, and resources. Three such Society members have been co-opted onto the Committee and it is hoped that the General Meeting will now endorse them as full Committee members.
The provisional agenda therefore includes the single proposal: “That Sylvia le Comber, Marc Cardle and Alastair Gourlay be appointed to the Committee”. A separate vote can be taken for each person if required. Should any member wish to offer any other proposal, please send me details by 18 November.
As a reminder, if anyone feels that they would like to help the Committee in future they are welcome to send details of their background and experience in originating and running events for the Committee’s consideration at any time.
As there is only one current proposal we envisage that this will be quite a short formal meeting, although we would also welcome the opportunity to discuss with members any ideas for the future, and especially for 2011. That could be a most interesting and helpful discussion.
It is important that we get 10 voting members to make a quorum, and so I would much appreciate it if you could tell us in advance of your intention to attend at
. It will also help us to judge the quantity of wine required!
The Committee looks forward to seeing you at around 7pm in International Students House on Thursday 2 December, for a 7.15 start.
