Annual Members’ Meeting 2016
1. Convenors Report
A members’ survey last year indicated that people wanted a broad range of events, including site and field visits, a
CEcol workshop, a dormouse talk, and a presentation of the new EcIA guidelines. Various suggestions were made
for alternative event venues.
The list of events below shows that the Committee has really worked hard to respond to people’s requests with a
full programme of activities, for which I am very grateful.
We have also seen the Committee replenish itself. As people have moved away or on to new things, new
members have come forward to help, enabling us to run an active programme.
