NOTICE is hereby given that the 87th Annual General Meeting of the Berkhamsted Citizens Association will be held in the Great Hall of the Town Hall, Berkhamsted on Thursday 8th March 2012 at 8 p.m.

Nominations for the posts of Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Hon. Treasurer, Hon. Secretary, Hon. Membership Secretary and Committee Members should be submitted to the Hon. Secretary (Miranda Cummins, 27 North Road, Berkhamsted HP4 3DU) in writing not later than 24 hours before the AGM. Consent of the person nominated must be obtained previously.

Agenda

  1. Apologies for absence
  2. Minutes of the AGM held on 10th March 2011 – for confirmation
  3. Chairman’s Report
  4. Hon Treasurer’s Report
  5. Election of Officers
  6. Election of Committee Members
  7. Appointment of Independent Examiners of Accounts
  8. Any other business

The present Committee would warmly welcome other members to join them, and look forward to additional nominations for committee members. The six-weekly Committee meetings last for around two hours, and we have in addition two regular sub-committees. The Town Amenities Sub-Committee (TASC) works hard to try to ensure that changes made to the built and general environment, both in Berkhamsted and Northchurch, are for the better. It meets monthly. The Activities & Publicity Sub-Committee, which meets as and when required, plans and organises a programme of talks, walks and other events. It often does most of its business on email or phone. There are members who serve on the sub-committees who are not on the main Committee. This arrangement suits those who have a particular interest. All meetings are held in committee members’ homes. In addition the BCA is represented on a number of local bodies such as the Berkhamsted Arts Trust, Town Hall Trust and the Friends of Rectory Lane Cemetery. There is something for everybody’s interests when you join the BCA Committee; and a way to involve yourself in public life.

Following the formal business of the night there will be a short break to include wine or soft drinks and nibbles, courtesy of the Association. Then the following:

Environment Awards 2011

There were a number of contenders for the Environment Award, covering a wide variety of development and all completed by the end of 2011. The selected sites to be illustrated are listed in the TASC report in the pages of this newsletter.

Guest Speaker

As we go to press, we hope to have a speaker from Royal Mail to talk about the recent closure of the Sorting Office and the arrangements in place for the public to retrieve undelivered post.

Open Forum

This will finish proceedings, we hope in a lively fashion.
