AGM Thursday 9.11.17 a Preview

This Thursday we're holding our Annual General Meeting at Swindon Dance, Town Hall, Regent Circus, SN1 1QF starting at 7.30pm, doors open at 7pm.It's a great opportunity to look back at what's been achieved this year, and to look forward to next year.
This year, we're doing the usual approving the minutes of last year's AGM, voting in the committee along with any new members, then we move onto a PowerPoint presentation put together by Mike Bradley which gives an amusing and speedy run through some photos of talks and trips. I've taken photos of some of the pdfs he sent the committee yesterday to give you an idea of how well he's put them together:
 I hope I'm not giving too much away, but they're lovely aren't they? Above the introductory slide
 Highlights above, and below the Hauser and Wirth trip photos

 Ending our bit with ideas for helping the work of the Friends of SM&AG
Following our presentation, Sophie Cummings, Curator at the museum will be talking about some of the highlights this year, including some recent acquisitions and donations.
Then Rod Hebden, Director of the Trust, will talk about the frantic life he's led since being appointed in April this year to put the bid for a new museum and art gallery to the Heritage Lottery Fund to build an iconic new building in the centre of town.
After that we will be holding a social and a raffle to raise funds. You don't need tickets to come to the AGM, entry is free, and there's a bar where you can buy a drink.
