WHAT: The Finn-Brit Players' AGM with FREE DRINKS and snacks
WHEN: Saturday 26th January, 2013 at 6 pm
WHERE: FINNBRIT, Fredrikinkatu 20 A, Helsinki (MAP)

Dear Players,

You are invited to the Finn-Brit Players' Annual General Meeting on 26 January 2013, at 6 pm

It's time for the Finn-Brit Players' membership to convene for the most important Players' event: the AGM, where the future of the association is decided: membership fees are set, a new committee is elected, the old one evaluated and the new budget adopted. This year, we will continue last year's successful format: food and FREE DRINKS (alcoholic and soft!) will be served!

Please come along and have your say. The society belongs to its members, and this is the best chance to voice your opinions - an active society needs active members. And if you would like to run for committee, fill in this form, have your nomination signed by two other members of the Finn-Brit Players, and return it to a committee member at the start of the AGM.

Members for 2012 are eligible to vote at the meeting, after which annual subscriptions for 2013 will be due. The membership fee will be decided at the meeting. Please note that new members may not be registered for a period of two weeks before the date of the AGM. See you on 26 January!
