Annual Conference 2020 update

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 jgcreed@btinternet.com (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.

  1. Would you kindly forward full details as soon as is convenient. Cheap train tickets etc. and other plans are dependent on this. Just a question as to why there was a change in the expected programme.
    Looking forward to meeting up, in friendship Mavis.

  2. Thanks for your comment Mavis.
    The full details are as on the website and the AGM will be on Saturday evening. The formal notice and agenda will be sent out next week. It was changed because there is a little more on the agenda and we decided it would be best on the Saturday rather than early Sunday morning.
    There may be further small changes to the programme. These decisions are made by the Steering Group by email discussion.
    We look forward to seeing you there and hope you will find suitable train tickets as there is still a month to go.
