The DISTRICT AGM 2011
JUNE 30th at NEWCASTLE CIVIC OFFICES
(There will be a porter on duty at the doors under the canopy in Merriel Street from 6.30.)
The plan is to assemble from 7.00 to 7.30
Formal agenda of AGM from 7.30 to 8.00
Social agenda from 8.00
Last year the displays put on by various sections were excellent and many people made very favourable comments about them. The hope is that we can do the same and build this aspect of the AGM up. The displays can be about anything your section/Group has done in 2010. The 7.00 to 7.30 time slot is the opportunity to “set out your stall”, as it were and then as soon as the formal agenda is complete, and that doesn’t take long, it is hoped that everybody will visit the displays. As last year the best practice would be to let youngsters man the display to stop leaders putting on a display and then seeing what others had displayed.
Everybody is welcome – and the County Commissioner will be making a presentation of the SILVER ACORN to BARBARA DAVIES
p.s. In the “managers” supplement to the recent issue of Scouting it suggests AGM stands for ADVENTUROUS GROUP MISSIONS or A GOOD MEETING can I suggest ANIMATED GATHERING of MEMBERS?
