Bournemouth Members’ Weekend & AGM

Written by Tom Blakemore

This April members of the South Herts branch will be joining their fellow CAMRA members from across the UK in the seaside resort of Bournemouth for CAMRA’s Members’ Weekend, which includes the National AGM and Conference.

As one of the oldest branches, South Herts been attending the CAMRA Members’ Weekend for over 40 years. It has always been, and still is, an opportunity to meet with old friends, make new acquaintances and socialise with other CAMRA members from across the country. But most importantly, the Members’ Weekend is a fantastic opportunity for any member across the organisation – whether you have just joined, been a member for 20+ years, active or inactive – to shape the future direction and purpose of CAMRA.

The AGM and Conference part of the Members’ Weekend is open to every single one of the 185,000 members. This year, that responsibility is even greater than ever before. Following 50 consultation meetings across the UK and three national surveys, CAMRA have now seen the proposals that were put forward by the Revitalisation Project Steering Committee on CAMRA’s future. Whether us as individuals agree or disagree with the proposals, took part in the consultation events or stayed at home, the Members’ Weekend will be the opportunity to discuss them inside and out ahead of a decision next year.

Over the weekend, members will be able to consider the Revitalisation Project and proposals on the future of CAMRA in a series of discussion groups. It will be your chance to have a say on the Revitalisation Project’s findings and represent your views in the debate. A final decision on the proposals will then be taken at the Members’ Weekend in 2018.

We hope to see you in Bournemouth this year – it promises to be a lively and enjoyable weekend.

The closing date for registration is Friday 17th March 2017. For more information simply visit
