Ipswich Mayor to visit us at our AGM
We’ll be in the usual place for our AGM in April, with an unusual guest. The Mayor of Ipswich, Cllr David Goldsmith, has been visiting the various faith groups in the town at their “places of worship”, and it’s our turn. No worshipping for his worship (sorry, couldn’t resist), but we will be able to give him a warm welcome, explain who we are and what we do, and talk about humanist and secularist interests.
The last mayoral visit we had was when we celebrated our 10th anniversary in 2001 and Cllr Philip Smart was mayor. He brought his family to meet us and we had a bit of a party.
At the time of typing, we’re not expecting the mayor to stay long, so we’ll postpone the usual AGM business (election of officers, etc.) until after he’s left. If there’s any time left after that, we’ll have ten-minute topics – you’re welcome to submit a topic on a piece of paper, then the topics are drawn at random.
We will need to elect a new chairperson and a new treasurer – anyone interested?
