Wednesday 12th April marks the date of the 43rd Annual General Meeting of the Association. The purposes of the meeting are to review the activities of the past year, elect a new Council for the coming year and for the Council to receive feedback from the membership on how they – that's you – would like to see the Association develop.
We have also had a sub-committee sitting to decide whether or not the prestigious Aidan P Fitzgerald Award should be awarded this year, and if so, who the recipient should be.
This award is given no more than once a year for "Outstanding Service to the Association" and is named after one of the leading members of the Association in the 1940s and 50s.
As well as the formal business, which we will try and complete as quickly and efficiently as possible, we will a showing of a short film marking this day as "Yuri's Night", being the 56th annivaersary of Yuri Gagarin becoming the first man in space. Then we'll have a telescope auction, bring and buy and telescope clinic, so if you're looking to buy some new gear, bring some maony along and grab a bargain!
All are welcome, though of course only paid up members are eligible to vote on business matters. Doors open about 7.15pm. There is free parking available on the campus in the evenings. Admission Free, including light refreshments. We are located in the Bell Theatre, Department of Mathematics and Physics, QUB – details here……
