This year SPA is holding the AGM at a new venue, one which we suspect few will have been to before, although you may have wondered what lay behind its imposing doors. Built in the 1840s as an indoor riding school the building was acquired by the Hampshire Regiment in the late 19th century and it has remained part of the Army estate ever since. We are therefore very privileged to be allowed to use the premises.
The 2018 AGM is on Thursday 18th January 2018. The format of the evening will be much as usual, drinks and canapés from 5.30 pm, AGM at 6.30 pm followed by three stimulating speakers, so that you can get your CPD hours off to a good start, the evening concluding around 8.00 pm. Please remember to confirm that you will be attending via Eventbrite for security purposes, or you may be refused entry.
As usual there is no charge to members on the evening, although we will be putting a bucket around for Help for Heroes in recognition of all our Armed Forces do to keep us safe.
Finally, should any member wish to put their name forward for the 2018 SPA committee please notify me by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
As is now customary, there will be a secret ballot of the members present at the AGM. Most importantly, the cut off point this year for applications is 12.00 midnight on 31st December 2017. Sorry, but no late applications will be accepted. You have been warned!
I do hope that you will be able to attend.
