2010 AGM on 6th November

The LIP AGM is for our members to take an active role in shaping our organisation going forward. It is at a conveniently accessible location and we have made it on a Saturday to make it easier for our members who live further away to attend.

Please do try to attend the AGM as this year we will have a revised constitution for members to vote on and there are some interesting committee positions that are currently without any nominations.

Please remember if you want to help in any capacity in assisting the Officers in their various roles you don’t necessarily have to become a committee member. If you feel that you can help in some way, have a chat with any of the committee officers at the AGM. Remember it’s your LIP and any contribution you can make can only help in making us an even better organisation.

DATE: Saturday 6th November 2010
TIME: 2-5pm
VENUE: The Grafton Suite, Grafton Hotel.
ADDRESS: 130 Tottenham Ct Rd., London, W1T 5AY
