Sands’ Board of Trustees would like to confirm that the Members’ Conference, hosted by Farnborough Sands, is taking place on 5th October 2013 in Basingstoke as previously announced. A portion of the Conference will provide an opportunity for Members to hear from the Board of Trustees about the development of the charity’s vision and strategy for 2014 and beyond.

The Board would also like to announce that Sands’ Annual General Meeting will now take place on 23 November 2013 at 1pm, at 28 Portland Place, London. Within the past few days, the Board has received 8 new nominations for Trustee positions – more than there are vacancies. With such a large number of candidates for election it is particularly important for all Members of the charity to have the opportunity to become fully informed about the charity’s current and future strategy and the role of the Board before voting on the composition of the Board.

Members will receive Official Notice of the AGM and accompanying papers (including proxy materials for Members who wish to vote but are unable to attend the AGM) in due course.

Sands is delighted to announce the final day plan for the forthcoming Members’ Conference on October 5th.
