The BHDTA AGM is being held at 2.15 pm on Saturday 17th October 2009. You should have received a nomination form for Council and a copy of the Annual Accounts with your August newsletter. Please give consideration to who you would like to see represent your interests on Council (while remembering that meetings are mid week and at the Council member?s own expense). Nomination and nominee forms were also sent with the August newsletter. Further copies can be obtained from the BHDTA office on request. The closing date for nominations is Wednesday 16th September.

The BHDTA Annual Conference will follow the AGM at 2.30 pm. Council members will be present at the Conference and will do their best to answer any questions and consider suggestions put forward by members. It is easier to get a definitive answer if the question is known in advance so any necessary research can be done. Please send any questions or suggestions to the BHDTA Office by Monday 12th October.
