Shortened Minutes from the G.A (25TH Feb)
NB:if anybody put up an agenda previously to be discussed at this G.A then some may have been left out beacuse we did not have the person who would have collated the information avaliable so we pretty much tried to remeber other agendas and put forward our own.
1) Collating Agendas
- can we please make sure that people who are responsible for collating the agenda items to make sure it gets passed on. If the second person cannot make it either then the same applies - find out who is going and pass on the details.
