The ILAS Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Sunday Jan 31, 2021 at 12:00. As with many other meetings over the last year, it will by necessity be an online meeting. More details will be available when the appropriate arrangements are in place.
The draft minutes of the 2020 AGM may be downloaded from the Downloads section of the ILAS website (login is required). Anyone who has difficulty accessing this should e-mail email@example.com.
For the election of the new Committee, it’s planned to use a simple low-tech approach to voting, with nominations sought beforehand and voting on the day during the online meeting. The outgoing Committee wish to strongly encourage members to consider putting themselves forward for a role on the Committee, as energy, time and a diversity of expertise are required to manage the Society’s day-to-day responsibilities. Committee meetings have been successfully conducted online during the pandemic-related restrictions, so ‘long-distance’ membership of the Committee is now better facilitated than heretofore.
Candidates for officer or Committee membership should be notified to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 14 days before the AGM, but may also (as per the Constitution) be proposed at the AGM itself.
Invoices for the annual membership subscription will be issuing early in the New Year. Payment will be possible online via Stripe, or by cheque/money order via surface mail to the Permit Secretary c/o 14 Herbert Park, Bray, Co Wicklow, A98 P3X2 . Note that the membership subscription is €50, but there's a reduction to €40 for existing members who pay within 30 days of the issuing of the invoice.
Kind regards and best wishes for 2021,
Noel Murphy, Hon Secretary,
on behalf of the ILAS Chairman and Committee
