Just before everyone gets stuck into the festive season we would like to announce the time and date of the 2022 Creative Royston AGM as 7.30pm on Monday 10th January.
The main purpose of the AGM is to elect the office-holder posts for the forthcoming festival (and calendar) year of 2022. At present there is one candidate for each post of Chair and Vice-Chair, but none for the posts of Secretary and Treasurer. If anyone wishes to volunteer for either of these posts, or is thinking about doing so, please contact Carl Filby using the Chair’s email address below and he will be happy to provide more information or discuss what is involved. We also need more volunteers to serve as ordinary committee members (we meet once a month February to September) and you can also contact Carl for details on those positions. Becoming a committee member is (in normal times) a good way of meeting new people and putting something back into your community, as well as providing opportunities to enhance your CV.
The AGM will be a Zoom meeting again given the current surge in the Omicron variant of Covid and all those with an interest in Royston Arts Festival are invited to attend. If you wish to do so please email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be sent joining details and associated paperwork.
In the meantime we wish you all a very safe but jolly festive season!
