A version of the below will be getting sent to members by email shortly:
In view of the continuing reduced level of capitation from CILIP, the Branch Committee has reluctantly agreed further reductions in activities. These mean that we shall:
- Not arrange a spring evening general meeting in March or April. The AGM, however, will go ahead on Wednesday 12 May and feature Professor Dave Nicholas as our guest speaker.
- Reduce the Sekforde Arms meetings to 5 per year and make a charge of £5 per meeting for non-CILIP members. The remaining three meetings for 2010 are likely to be in June, September and October or November. Please see the Gazette for details in due course.
- Reduce CLIP to two hard copies per year and make full use of the CILIP HQ email service to fill in the gaps
- Suspend the international programme; this means that no bursaries will be offered in 2010.
There will be a general evening meeting at the end of the year, on Wednesday 8 December at which Biddy Fisher, the President of CILIP, will be our speaker.
