SELMAS committee minutes 26th March 2015

  1. The annual SELMAS takes place in St George’s on 14 May.  Over half the places have already been taken – which is great news.  If you have not booked a place, please do so now.  (Booking pro forma on the SELMAS web site.)
  2. The SELMAS paper has been expanded by the Committee and is attached to the minute.  Please take a few moments to read this as it represents our statement to the profession and the public as to what we are and how we operate.  Please note that we have made a slightly tighter definition of committee membership.  As a consequence the committee has asked everyone who receives this (which by definition means that you are currently assumed to be a committee member) to confirm their intention of continuing as a committee member.  Please email me to so confirm.
  3. The June committee meeting (4 June) will be an AGM.  If you wish to nominate yourself or any other committee member for any of the officers’ positions, please intimate that to me by email at least one week prior to the meeting.
