Dear CBA North Followers,

Re: Notice of CBA North Annual General Meeting, Saturday 18 June 2016

I am writing to formally give you notice of and to invite you to attend our Annual General Meeting which will be from 10.00am on Saturday 18 June 2016 at Corbridge Parish Hall, St Helen’s Street, Corbridge, Northumberland, NE45 5BE. Online details of the venue can be found at http://www.corbridge.ukpc.net/pages/parish-hall.php.

The business part of the meeting will begin promptly at 10.30am with its agenda below. Our Chairman’s Report and Accounts for the year to 31 March 2016, and our proposed Social Media and Digital Information Policy, which Committee seek discussion on and adoption of will available on our website (https://cbanorth.wordpress.com/) from mid-May. We welcome your thoughts on these documents at the meeting, though contributions can also be made upon these in replying to confirm your attendance, or present your apologies, for this meeting now or when the documents are placed online.

CBA North Committee, as at any other time, welcome thoughts on what you think CBA North should be doing during 2016. (If you would like to raise something at the AGM please let us know at least seven days before the meeting as per the AGM requirements).

We invite local archaeological societies from across the region to report upon their activities of whatever form – whether fieldwork, local archives or museums research, their publication or publicising of archaeology – have been during 2015, or are yet to come in 2016, to everyone else by contributing a short talk in a general networking/updating session of approximately an hour when we break for refreshments after the AGM business. Please let us know if you would like to contribute something towards this session as soon as possible for this part of the day; we have time for five or so short talks. There is also plenty of room at the venue [open from 10.00am] in case people would like to set up any banners, posters or table-top displays instead or as well.

We will leave you to your own devices during a lunch break for an hour or so; there are a number of hostelries within Corbridge. We will then reconvene at 2.00pm for a detailed tour of Corbridge Roman Town, led by Graeme Stobbs of English Heritage who is one of the curators, as ‘The Story of Roman Corbridge’ where we have discounted entry to the site with English Heritage as a group. This will also include a behind the scenes tour of the stores of the museum which are not ordinarily open to the public. Details of the site can be found at http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/corbridge-roman-town-hadrians-wall/.

I would be most grateful if you could let me know whether you will be attending the meeting by filling in the booking form and preferably emailing it to me at the cbanorth@archaeologyuk.org email address only or sending it to our Newcastle address above by Saturday 4 June at the very latest.

Yours sincerely,

Keith Elliott
Secretary, CBA North
