Branch AGM

The Branch held its Annual General Meeting on 11 March in Senate House. The event was standing room only, with over 70 members packed into the room. Members heard speakers on the London Living Wage Campaign (Greg Brown), and on human rights abuses in Zimbabwe (Leo Zeilig). Unfortunately, one guest speaker was not able to attend as she was detained by Zimbabwe security forces.

After the speakers were heard, members had the opportunity to consider reports from the Chair, Treasurer and Branch Officers. The Branch also elected its committee members for the next year.

Before breaking for a well-deserved lunch, the local Unison officer presided over the 'Recruit a Friend Prize Draw', where a member from the Courtauld Institute won an ipod. Four other lucky members received runner up prizes including a £100 red-letter day voucher, and book tokens.
