Many thanks for the hard work of local Branch members who give voluntarily of their time and who arrange for Branch AGMs and Branch meetings. Council is conscious that the measures taken by the Government to control the spread of COVID-19 have, of necessity, disrupted the normal activities of Branches. At time of going to press, it seems unlikely that Branches will be in a position to hold AGMs in the next few months, the time when most Branch AGMs have traditionally been held.
Many of us have become familiar with the technology that has facilitated holding ‘Virtual Meetings’ since March 2020. Any Branch that wishes to consider holding a virtual AGM and would like assistance in doing so, can contact Council at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0871317062.
Although the longer-term position is still by no means certain, the Council of the RCPSA has decided to set a provisional date of 27 May 2021 for the RCPSA AGM 2021. An invitation has issued via the Newsletter (and this website) for Branches and members to attend and to submit nominations and motions to form part of the Agenda.
The RCPSA continues to represent members interests and the Officers and Council have been holding virtual meetings as appropriate. We hope that it will not be too much longer before we can all meet in person. In the meantime, take care.
