There'll be updates on our finances, the training apiaries and upcoming events programme as usual and we'll let you know about the Waitrose money and an update to the constitution: we just want to change one paragraph as we'd like to introduce some new membership levels to better reflect the types of members we have now. This is your chance to question and perhaps join the committee so please attend if you can.

COMMITTEE MEMBERS
We're looking for two new members of the committee as Annie and Nick A are standing down: we'd like to thank Annie for her years of hard work as Secretary and Nick A and his wife Lin for the great job they've done on the newsletter. The new members of the committee don't have to take these specific roles as we sort out jobs at the committee meeting after the AGM, on Tuesday 27th February. We meet about 10 times a year.

The Secretary currently:
Maintains the membership database
Sends out the agenda and takes the minutes for committee meetings
Organises the agenda, coordinates reports and takes minutes for the AGM
Looks after the Secretary's email address which includes liasing with the WBKA and anyone who gets in contact
There's no reason why some of these tasks can't be shared between committee members.

For the newsletter it's writing content, putting together information in whatever way you see fit and sending to members 10-12 times a year. We use an email system that will make life easier for you. You can choose the format of the newsletter. [Please correct this as required]

SUPPORT NEEDED
There are some tasks coming up this year the committee could do with some help on:
Website - creating new content. I can teach you how to write for the web if needed. Rhodri will update us on the website at the AGM
Governance - there's a big task coming up as we need to look at things like policies, procedures and what legal type of organisation we need to be. The committee is getting advice from Cardiff Third Sector Council but any other support is gratefully accepted.
Anything else you think you can do to help support the Association.
