Branch elects LGBT+ and Retired Members Officers

At the branch committee meeting held yesterday (9 August 2021) the branch voted to elect Anna Campbell to the position of LGBT+ officer and Paul Hyde to the position of Retired Members Officer. Welcome Anna and Paul to the branch committee.

This now means that the branch has filled all of the officer posts with the exception of the position of Chair. At present meetings are chaired either by the Branch Secretary or by one of the other officers.

The full list of committee posts can be found on the Branch committee page.

The committee discussed holding a face-to-face meeting in central London in November 2021 and a small steering group is meeting to plan and organise this event. As soon as a date and venue are agreed details will be published on this website and circulated to all members. This is an exciting development for the branch. If feasible, the meeting will be a hybrid format with members also able to attend remotely using online video platform (probably Zoom). More details to follow.

Young Members Officer Luke Heppenstall West is organising an event for our young members and a steering group meeting for this event will be held on 2nd September to plan this event.

In order to help the new branch committee members to get to know each other and to to help them to develop their roles, the branch will be holding a face-to-face event for branch committee members in North London on Monday 4th October in the evening. Thanks to Donald our Health and Safety branch officer for arranging the venue.

If any member would be interested to know more about any of these activities, or would like to get involved in organising these or any other event, then please contact the branch or phone 020 7729 4001 where Anita will usually answer in seconds or contact myself Peter C. Bell or phone 07812 171 825.
