AGM and Launch of Oak Fund
The 2017 AGM took place on 22nd June, followed by the first Crathorne Lecture, given by Adrian Tinniswood, author of The Long Weekend. The subject was the Georgian era as seen in the interwar years and was warmly received.
The AGM approved the increase in membership fees from 1st September 2017 as follows:
Life Members £850 to £1000
Joint Life Members £1200 to £1500
Ordinary Members £40 to £50
Joint Members £55 to £75
Young Georgians £25 to £30
Corporate £150 to £200
The increase in fees is to cover the escalating costs of postage and running costs, and to allow the Group to make enough profit from membership income to continue with our minimum casework capability of three caseworkers for England and one for Wales.
In addition to this we have launched the Oak Fund for our 80th anniversary, which is also directly linked to enabling us to fund our casework and statutory duty. Information on the Oak Fund is available here:
