An Extraordinary General Meeting of the Society has been scheduled to take place at 6:30pm on Friday 9 December 2011.
 
The venue is The Mug House near London Bridge.
 
Directions to the venue can be found online at the BFS website.
 
The meeting will seek to elect new officers to the Committee of the BFS and will consider a proposal to reorganise the BFS awards.
 
I currently have nominations for all Committee places with the exception of the post of Secretary. If you are interested in standing for any of the positions available please let me have your nomination accompanied by the names of at least two supporting members, together with a manifesto of your aims.
 
Send nominations to [email protected] by Friday 18 November.
 
Regarding the proposal for reforming the awards, you are encouraged to take part in the online survey. We will use the data returned to propose a new formulation. That formulation will then be put to the EGM on 9 December.
 
Members unable to attend the EGM in person will be able to vote electronically.
 
As promised by Graham Joyce in his last announcement. We are running a survey to collect thoughts and opinions from BFS members and Fantasycon attendees to help us define the future of the British Fantasy Awards.
 
The survey is now available on-line
 
The survey is open to all BFS members and registered attendees of Fantasycon for the years of 2010, 2011 and 2012.
 
Please note: The EGM is only open to BFS members, however non-BFS memebers are welcome and encourage to join us for the Open Night from 7.30pm onwards.
 
Onwards and upwards...Graham Joyce
