NAW AGM postponed

The 2022 AGM of the National Assembly of Women was due to be held on 18 June in Birmingham. Frustratingly, we have discovered that major engineering rail works are starting on 18 June affecting key routes to and from Birmingham which means that many sisters would struggle to attend.

After careful consideration the NAW Executive Committee has reluctantly accepted that rather than move the date further into the summer period we should combine the AGM with our planned 70th NAW Anniversary event at the Marx Memorial Library in London on Saturday 5 November.

The AGM will start at 11.00am followed by our Anniversary celebration.
Further details will follow, including revised timescales for EC elections.

Sincere apologies to sisters who had hoped to attend – this decision has not been taken lightly but we are faced with circumstances beyond our control.
