    Thanks @slysaint for posting, it was on our to-do list. Thanks as well to @Caroline Struthers for her willingness to speak at our AGM. Look forward to this.
    AGM will last max of 15 months minutes, then Caroline’s talk, plus a Q&A session. And not forgetting the all important break for refreshments and rest, or, more likely, chatting to other attendees.

    This looks set to be a great event, fab you've got Caroline speaking. Is there any chance anyone would be able to livestream it? I'm sure members of Sheffield ME and Fibromyalgia Group would be interested. (All that's needed is a phone, Facebook page and some sort of tripod plus gaffa tape if you don't have a proper phone mount)

    Will check with our guru on these matters. As it doesn’t require editing afterwards that eases the burden. Oh, and need to check @Caroline Struthers is happy about it as well.

    We do pretty well with AGM’s ;) Venue is basic but cheap, so fingers crossed the refreshments are nice, using a new-to-us company to cater.
    We haven’t ticketed this event, but if ‘huge’ numbers plan to show up, please let us know for planning purposes, thanks! Enquire.omega@gmail.com
    Oops, that’s what we forgot to include on the poster, contact details!

    I can help with editing if required. Or can make it into a video with a few slides if youre only able to capture audio.

    Thanks, @Adam pwme Our committee has now discussed this and a live stream is unlikely, but plan is to record the talk only and post together with slides — which eliminates a lot of the work. But I’ll pass on your offer as putting the two together is ideal but takes time.
    We won’t record the q&a for privacy reasons.
    And we also need to be sure our speaker happy to do this.

    @Adam pwme thank you so much for the offer of help editing, I often don't have time so videos sit waiting for ages. I will video it and record sound separately, and hopefully quickly sync it up and should be fine. However ,if the lighting conditions are tricky I will expose for the speaker, then manually editing in the slides does make it easier for people to follow, and your help may well be welcome for that. It all depends on the day, and how complex her talk is.So a huge thank you again, Spangle :)

    Is this going ahead?
    @Caroline Struthers have you sorted your outfit out yet?

    how about the Dolly look (Glastonbury)?

    Yes, it is going ahead, looking forward to hearing from Caroline — the select few who can come. :)

    The room is quite large so no need to be that close to others. The Good Gym volunteers will be supporting again; if anyone needs assistance, please ask. And there will be cake! :cake:

    Please do let us know who you are if from this forum, I’d love to put names to faces.

    There was due to be, but it depends on whether the person taking it has had time to edit, I suspect.

    Caroline may have notes, copies of slides etc.

    Sorry for late reply. What I could do is turn the presentation into a blog post- I do have my notes/script and slides. Shall I do that? Or I could just pdf the presentation without editing. Simples!
