Programme Secretaries Day - 2nd march



Dear Programme Secretary, (if you are no longer in this role please pass it on to the person who is) 

I am writing to you to invite you to a meeting of Programme Secretaries of Societies within the Beds and Herts Area.  If another member of your Committee organsies Days of Special Interest/Study Days they too are invited-  two people from each Society are very welcome to attend.


Other areas hold similar days and find them a really valuable forum in which to exhange views on speakers,  discuss their forthcoming programmes, learn how other Societies deal with issues that arise and so on.  It would also be really helpful to me to know what you would like me to do/not do as Area Co-Ordinator of Education.  So in discussion with Gill Burn the Area Chairman we have decided to hold such a meeting for Beds and Herts. 


I have booked the downstairs room at the The Box Moor Trust Centre, London Road, Hemel Hempstead, Herts HP1 2RE  10 am for 10.30 on Monday 2nd March 2020.  A light lunch will be provided.  I would expect those attending to get away by 1.30.  There is a fair amount of parking at the Box Moor Trust Centre but if you can car-share that wlould be helpful.


The date is deliberately shortly before Directory Day when you will probably be thinking of putting togetther the programme for the following year. 

I do hope that you, and who ever organsies your Days of Special Interest/Study Days will attend this meeting. It is very much an experiment and if it proves successful will, as it has in other areas, become a regular annual fixture. 

Please let me know who, if anyone, will be attending from your Society and whether it will be one or two people.Please let me have their e-mail addresses so that I can send out an agenda to them nearer the time.   

If anyone has something they want dicussed please let me know and I will put it on the agenda.


With best wishes


Gill Gowing
