2014 AGM

November 2014

Dear Member

CPS 22nd    AGM 6th December 2014 at 11 a.m. Hastingleigh

This is to invite you to our 22nd AGM, which is rapidly approaching. Please make a note of

the date and come and enjoy a day of sharing work, catching up with members, using the

opportunity to purchase items, eating well and participating in the 22nd AGM. You will be

able to renew your membership and book workshops for 2015.


As for last year, the full details and documentation can be found on the CPS website:

www.cinqueportsscribes.org.uk. If you are on email you will not be sent the hard copy



The documents required for the AGM are as follows:


All existing committee members are willing to continue/be re-elected where appropriate

for 2015 – except Ann as Treasurer. Tony also will be stepping down as workshop secretary,

but will continue with tutor bookings (as well as the website manager) and Mari will step

down as a committee member in order to divert her energies into publishing the newsletter.



You may wish to volunteer to be on the committee at the AGM itself or nominate someone

as a committee member who may not be able to attend, in which case you will need to bring

a completed ‘Nomination for committee’ form (please check that the person you are

nominating wishes to stand!). If you are interested in joining the committee, please feel

free to contact any member of the committee to discuss the role with you.


There will be an exhibition table for members to bring and display work and examples of

the CPS Envelope Exchange 2014 work compiled by Peter Jordan to see (well worth

spending some time on). Please bring a label for your work on display (name and title is all

that is required).


A few items CPS stock will be for sale together with the remaining 20th Anniversary mugs.

Ex-CPS library books and magazines will be for sale and a Bring and Buy table for members

to sell calligraphic books, art materials and anything else – maybe home made goods. If you

bring an item to sell please put a ticket with the item together with your name and the

price required in order to make this a simple process.


Please note there will not be a Secret Santa this year but after its success last year we shall

be running the CPS Christmas card competition again and making this a feature of the AGM

instead, when we can vote for our favourite design. We look forward to receiving your entries.


There will be the two libraries (CPS and Augusto’s) and remember; if you have books to

return please bring them with you.


The committee will provide mulled wine, soft drinks and puddings so would you please

bring savoury finger food (nothing that requires heating up or cooking due to too little

space and time). Tea and coffee will be available during the day.


We would value your help in helping to clear the hall at the end of the meeting, which

ends at 3 p.m. this year.


We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 6th December. If you are unable to download

any of the forms or papers listed above please contact me and I’ll email them to you as

separate items (janet.adkin@blueyonder.co.uk).

With best wishes Janet Adkin (CPS Secretary)
