MEETING FOR BFS MEMBERS ONLY
— The Beltane Fire Society (BFS) is a community of volunteers and a charity; and each year at our annual general meeting, we take stock of the year that’s passed and look ahead at the year to come, as well as voting in a new board of trustees to keep our society going.
All members of BFS are welcome – and you’re a member if you have volunteered at one of our Beltane or Samhuinn festivals in the past three years. You can just join us on the day to have your say (no need to do anything in advance), and there's more information here too: beltane.org/2017/05/23/announcing-our-agm-and-inviting-applications-for-2017-18-board-members/
And if you'd like to, in advance you can:
++ Stand to be elected as a member of the BFS board (apply by 16 June)
++ Submit an item for discussion or voting on at the AGM (send by 4 June)
++ Let us know you're nominating someone else (a 'proxy') to vote on your behalf at the AGM if you can't attend (tell us by 23 June).
You'll find the information, detail and forms you may need to do these on the website at beltane.org/2017/05/23/announcing-our-agm-and-inviting-applications-for-2017-18-board-members/
We're looking forward to seeing you there. If you have any questions, or want to be added to the BFS announcements email list (which we'll use to send the agenda and papers ahead of the AGM), email us at board [at] beltane [dot] org.
