With just a month to go, documents for the conference and AGM have been updated on the Conference page and we hope these will be the final updates.
Look forward to seeing you there. (And if you haven’t already booked, contact Roger now to see if he has any spaces left!)
The AGM will now be on Saturday evening (formal notice to follow) and the participants’ short presentations and QandA on Sunday morning. (The Conference page and documents have been updated to reflect this).
We now have about 40 booked places but there are still a few places and possibility of Saturday or Sunday only ‘day-tickets’ available from Roger. Please see the Conference (‘Home’) page to book.
This promises to be a very worthwhile and informative conference (but they always are!). We do however need to recruit new members to the Steering Group (as well as the Network!) and I have taken the liberty of reproducing below a lightly edited version of part of a Steering Group email from our clerk Gisela Creed:
“There will be big changes to our Steering Group (SG) this year with a number of long serving members standing down, creating vacancies, and a new clerk and newsletter editor to be appointed. The SG could therefore do with a couple of new enthusiastic members. If any of you know someone who might volunteer, please give them a strong push to come forward.”
We conduct most of the Steering Group business by email (with usually one meeting a year in addition to meeting at the Conference) so it is not too arduous and if any of you could help out, please volunteer at the AGM or in advance by email to Gisela firstname.lastname@example.org (Gisela is a member of West of Scotland Area Meeting and our 9 SG members are from 9 different AMs. For full details of these, see the ‘Organisation of Nontheist Friends Network‘ page.)
Attendees at the Conference this year are from a very wide range of Area Meetings (or none) across all parts of the United Kingdom.
