Annual General Meeting 2022
Our Annual General Meeting is coming up on 21st September, 7.30pm at St Barnabas church hall in Langney. The AGM is a chance to contribute to the policies and creative direction of the society, and to vote in your new committee for the year ahead.
This year we will be seeking to make a change to the constitution to allow younger members (14+) to join the society.
After the official business of the AGM, there will be refreshments and a chance to socialise.
Anyone can attend the AGM, but you must be a paid up member to vote on committee members or other business. Visit the Join Us page to find out how to join.
Join the Committee
We always welcome any members to volunteer for a role on the committee. If you would like to help steer the direction of the society and contribute in practical ways to productions and events, please put yourself forward. We meet once a month and there is usually cake!
You must be a paid up member to volunteer, and you will need another member to nominate you. If you are nominating someone else, please ensure they are happy to be nominated.
Please submit your nominations by 19th September so that we can collate them for voting on the night.
