Branch meetng August 2016

Dear Comrades

in my role of Acting Branch Secretary I am hoping to arrange a full face to face branch meeting for the week beginning 14th August, at a venue to be arranged. Could members, non members who wish to attend let me know of their preferred date and I will try and get a suitable venue booked.

We have some important issues to discuss, following the last Branch Meetiing, however I was hoping that the meeting could also find time to discuss future plans for branch activity. My personal view is that we should look to start having face to face meetings on at least a bi monthly basis, I think we should look at plans to send at least one delegate to the ADM and that we should consider putting together a lecture series for the Autumn/ Winter period.

I am visiting Head Office next week and was hoping to bring back materials we could use to start to develop a comprehensive literature stall, and also from that visit put together a mailing list of contact, subscribers, sympathisers, etc. in the North East. If there is anything else memebrs think would be appropriate to bring back, please let me know.

Hi Tim,

Might as well get a place booked that is suitable for you. It's why I handed that particular issue over to you in May.

 

Cheers,
Stephen

Hi Tim,

I should have made it clearer earlier. What Joe says, works for me.

That all sounds very encouraging, Tim. 

You'll probably be aware that several branches are now holding regular street stalls and in many cases K&S have obtained the folding tables and wrap around banners on their behalf - in fact over the weekend at Summer School we received another request for a table and banner from West Midlands Regional branch and it is quite likely that Swansea branch will be holding stalls in Cardiff before too long.

As soon as you have made plans for your face-to-face meeting you'll obviously let the SSPC know so that it can be advertised in the Standard - please copy the info to me so I can include the details on the party's Meetup group and in the events section of the website.

Best of luck with your endeavours.

Hi Tim,

Just thought, have you sent out a branch email asking members about a meeting?

 

Cheers,
Stephen

Hi Steve

As it stands I do not have all of the relevant email addresses, although I do have some.

I was at HO office today and as well as collecting literature I have also collected a list of all contacts in the NE region. The list is quite dated, some of the contacts/members are dead, however there is somewhere in the region of 300 contacts/subscribers/members in the area.

I'm going to go through the list when I get back home and see if we can get together a substantial mailing list for NE region activities.

If you have any other email addresses, I would appreciate it if you could get them over to me.

In terms of a date, I think Tuesday 10th August looks like the best date, I am trying to get a venue sorted, I will update as soon as I have replies from venues.
