It is a pleasure for me to deliver my report on the activities of the Society for 2016/2017. This has indeed been an exciting and productive year. In the interests of time my report will focus on those issues that have been of most importance. The 2016 AGM left Council with two pressing issues – both supported by the members present at the AGM. These were the revision of our constitution and changes to the business and banking structure of the Society. I’m please to report that substantial progress has been made with both.
