Britsoc Chairman’s Blog Sept 2015

Dear members,

Welcome back from your summer rest –I hope that you all enjoyed some down time and did something you always wanted to!

We approach our busiest time of the year and preparations are in full swing. Our website has all details, but you will need to note some dates to be sure not to miss the action.

September 24th is our Annual General Meeting.

November 8th is our Guy Fawkes night.

December 12th sees the return of our Gala Xmas Ball.

We would love to see you and your friends at these events, so please spread the word.


On a personal note, I have decided to pass on the baton of Chairman of this Society.

After a few years at the helm, I am happy with what we have achieved, but feel that new blood is needed to take us on to the next stage.

I believe that we should be taking stock of our status and what it is that we do, why, and for whom.

The new leader should have or make some new plans to revise our position.

The quest to find the right person need not be rushed – I am happy to stay on in name for a maximum of a year or until, in the eyes of the committee and members, a suitable successor is found.

Check the website for ticketing details for the events and see you soon.



Ian Cherington
