CWIG AGM and Futures of Publishing: a wild brainstorm
Tuesday 13 November
Annual General Meeting
The AGM will consist of the Chairman’s Report by Helena Pielichaty (Chair) followed by Committee elections. Nicola Davies, Patrick Ness and Bali Rai are retiring and replacements are being sought. Please send your suggestions to Jo McCrum (Secretary). John Dougherty, Sarah McIntyre and Nicola Smee are continuing to serve. The Committee will present their nominations in advance of the AGM, but their recommendation to date is that Michaela Morgan extends her tenure for another year to continue working on our reading for pleasure and literacy campaigns.
Futures of Publishing: a wild brainstorm
