This replaces the normal Annual General Meeting of previous years as the first official AGM of the new CIO is not due to be held until the period 1 January 2018 - 31 March 2018, to accord with Charity Commission requirements. As a consequence, the main business of the meeting will be the election of new trustees, although the final accounts for FGVW as an unincorporated organisation for the period up to 10 October 2016 (the day preceding the date of incorporation) will be presented along with the Chair's Report on activity during the year. We hope to see you there.
