Manchester Branch Meeting
October 19th 7:00pm prompt start (arrive at 6:30pm)
Mechanics Institute in Manchester. http://www.mechanicsinstitute.co.uk/
Ruth Allen BASW Chief Executive is the guest speaker. Ruth will be followed by the official launch of the branch. This will include election of people to help run the branch. Please put in your diary and encourage others – members and non-members are welcome.
The view taken at the meeting was that a small group of people can lead on necessary actions – planning for future meetings, booking venues etc. and defined roles were not that important. However it was agreed that there needed to be people with a named responsibility. So the branch needs volunteers to be: named Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, and events and media leads. The meeting wanted a few additional committee members as well. Nominations for these roles will be made at the meeting. If you are interested in helping the branch continue and develop by expressing an interest in one of these roles please send over your interest to email@example.com. If there is more than one person interested in each role then there will be an election on October 19th at the meeting. In the meantime we need to thank Denise Monks, Colin Jones, Daniel Murphy and Michelle Greenhalgh who have got the branch going.
