AGM

The 2017 AGM of Buckinghamshire Local Optical Committee was held at 8.00 pm on the evening of 19th April at the Postgraduate Education Centre, Stoke Mandeville Hospital. The agenda and other documents for the meeting may be downloaded on the right. (Minutes to follow)

 

All resolutions were passed. No nominations for new committee members were received, and all of the existing committee were happy to continue. Therefore no elections were required, and the members remain as now.  Following the AGM, the reinstated committee met to elect a chair and treasurer, and these were confirmed as: Bruce Gilson (chair) and Alison Goodridge (treasurer).
