So for those who will appreciate an antidote to the political rhetoric that will flood the airwaves on the same day, we have the perfect solution: a private tour of the Science Museum in London.
As indicated in the Guild-wide email survey in November, the plan is to host the meeting at the South Kensington Science Museum. It will take place in the late afternoon to allow time for as many people as possible to work during the day rather than commit to a full day out of the office.
The feedback from the survey was overwhelmingly in favour of the proposed location and timing. Three quarters of those who replied said they would plan to attend the AGM.
The event will start with members assembling in the Director’s Suite at the Science Museum in time for the AGM to start at 4.30pm. It will take about 60 minutes and be followed by a presentation from Citroën which will sponsor the event. Citroën sales and operations director Bekir Hassan will speak at the event.
When the AGM is over there will be a light buffet reception and guided group tours of the museum after it closes to the public. A highly relevant new exhibit that members will be able to see is the recently unveiled Information Technology Gallery from which the Queen sent her very first Tweet!
Following the tours the formal part of the event will be over. Members can choose whether to leave for home or perhaps arrange an evening meal with colleagues in one of the many local restaurants.
Full details will appear in the March/April edition of Update and formal invitation letters will be sent by the General Secretary during March. Please put the date in your 2015 diary now…THURSDAY 07 MAY 2015.
