We hope that you are keeping well through these strange times and that you have been able to get out to enjoy the countryside near to you during the lockdown.
Our 2020 AGM will be held on Friday, November 13, at 10.30am. We are delighted that our guest speaker will be the new national chair of CPRE, Simon Murray. Simon took on this role after retiring from the National Trust, where he was chief operating officer and senior director.
Although we had hoped to be able to host a socially-distanced physical meeting, it is now clear that it will be necessary to hold the meeting in virtual form, using Zoom technology. This decision is consistent with advice from CPRE National Office and the Charity Commission. We expect the meeting to last approximately one hour.
While we recognise that not everyone has easy access to the internet and associated technology, we believe that this is the best way to proceed safely in the current circumstances. If you do not have access to the internet at home, perhaps you have a friend who would allow you to attend the meeting using their internet access. If you are unable to attend the AGM, you may vote by proxy.
To participate in the AGM, you will need to pre-register. To do this, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office on 01233 714540 stating that you wish to attend the AGM. It will be helpful if you can quote your CPRE membership number when you do. (If you are planning to attend using a friend’s internet access, it would be best to pre-register using the friend’s email.)
Registration will close 48 hours before the start of the meeting, ie on Wednesday, November 11. Those who have pre-registered will be sent a Zoom invitation and instructions to help them attend the meeting.
We hope to ‘see’ you virtually at the 2020 CPRE Kent AGM!
