The 2015 BAGS AGM will be held on Saturday 18 April 2015 at Longdon Village Hall near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

The following committee members are due to stand down but are eligible to stand for re-election:

  • Christine Brown
  • Chris Tyler
  • David Haworth

There are vacancies on the Committee. All nominations for election are required by 23 March. This may seem a long way off, but it is never too soon to start thinking about who would make a good Committee member. We need a mix of experienced people and newcomers who can bring fresh ideas to the table. Every Committee member has a different area of interest or expertise, and it is only with a combination of these talents that the Society will survive and move forward. The term of office is normally three years.

There are usually two or three Committee meetings per year, held normally in Longdon, near Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire. It is accepted that Committee members who live far away from this venue may not be able to attend all these meetings, but the important factor is to stay in touch via the phone, fax or email, to answer messages, give opinions or instigate topics for discussion.

All nominations should be made in writing to the Secretary, signed by the nominator and a seconder, together with written consent to be nominated, signed by the nominee. In addition, the nominee should provide a short account of his/her experience in angora goats and the issues in which he/she is particularly interested.

A buffet lunch will be available after the AGM’s and before a discussion about future mohair collections and South Africa options.

If you will be attending the AGM’s and would like to stay for lunch please let Jo know by the beginning of April.
