The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 26.523 Wednesday, 4 November 2015
Date: November 4, 2015 at 5:51:21 AM EST
Subject: Annual General Meeting of the British Shakespeare Association 7th November 2015 2-3pm
I am looking forward to seeing many of you at the Annual General Meeting of the BSA this coming Saturday, which will be held at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in Stratford from 2-3pm. After the AGM, we will be celebrating the appointment of two new Honorary Fellows, Janet Suzman and Chris Grace, and I hope that many of you will stay with us for that event.
Please find attached the agenda for the AGM. There are no papers for circulation this year, but for information I have also attached the minutes of the last meeting and the documents which form the constitution of the BSA. In addition, I have also attached our auditor’s report on the BSA’s accounts up to 31st August 2014. Since changing our financial year-end to the end of August, our AGMs are now out of synch with our auditor’s reports. The Board is looking at changing the date of future AGMs to ensure that members are able to scrutinise more recent accounts.
You can download the papers at the links below. If you have any difficulty accessing the papers, please get in touch and I will arrange for them to be resent.
Can I also take this opportunity to remind you that the call for papers for our Biennial Conference in 2016 has been published with a deadline of 15th December 2015. The full cfp is published here: http ://www . britishshakespeare . ws/conference/
Also, we are currently recruiting a new Trustee with a background in primary and/or secondary education. If you are interested in applying then there will be an opportunity at the AGM to informally discuss the position with members of the Board.
I look forward to seeing many of you on Saturday
