Dear CBA North Members,
Notice of CBA North Annual General Meeting,
Saturday 18 August 2018
I write to give you the formal notice of our Annual General Meeting which will take place on Saturday 18 August 2018 at 10.30am. This will be in the rooms of Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Newcastle upon Tyne (see stnicholascathedral.co.uk/ for more).
The agenda is given below. Business will begin promptly at 10.30am, but people can arrive from 10.00am for tea or coffee refreshments. A summary of the 2017 AGM is available on request. Please confirm your attendance, or send apologies in, for this meeting through an email to us.
I would encourage you to get involved with CBA North – we are the only regional archaeological group for both individuals and groups interested in the archaeology and history of our region as a whole. Our goal is to promote at a local, regional, and national level (via the CBA networks) the archaeology, history and historic environment of the North-East and Cumbria.
CBA North Committee, as at any other time, welcome thoughts on what you think we should be doing in the forthcoming year. If you would like to raise an issue at the AGM please let us know at least seven days before the meeting. Group members should identify their representatives for the day.
If you or your group would like to give a short update or display of your own activities following the morning business part of the AGM please let us know.
We will then break for lunch – you are welcome to bring your own lunch to the cathedral if preferred, though numerous cafes and restaurants are close by – before reconvening at 2.00pm for a tour of our venue as church, cathedral as well as a prison at times. This will be led by David Heslop, a familiar face to many of you, now Cathedral Archaeologist, who will be detailing recent and current project work in the cathedral.
I would be most grateful if you could let me know whether you will be attending the meeting. Please email me by Wednesday 15 August 2018 at the very latest.
Secretary, CBA North
