Liverpool & District General Branch
Don't miss the Christmas Social this Wednesday December 10!! It's at the lovely Casa, 29 Hope Street , L1, near the Everyman. 7pm-11pm. It's a terrific venue and should be a great night. Quiz, raffle, prizes! Bring 3 friends or family. See you there.
Our next full branch meeting is on Wednesday January 7. Make a note that it's a later start time this time - 7pm start. We're hoping to have a special guest at our first meeting of the year. Equity President Malcolm Sinclair had hoped to be there but, unfortunately, he has had to drop out . He'll be at a later meeting of the branch so, watch this space.
Come and meet other members at the meeting at the Everyman Bistro and have a fun evening. We usually hang out for a bit afterwards in the Bistro bar.

Equity has a vital network of branches throughout the UK which give members a voice in the union and much more. Branches are set up by the Equity Council to give members in local areas the opportunity to meet regularly to discuss issues of common concern and to have a focal point. Members are invited to join their local branch to share views and experiences, put proposals to Equity's ruling body, organise a programme of social events and raise money for local charities. Equity Student members are also very welcome at meetings. Members volunteer to take an active role in branch activities by standing for election as Branch Chair, Secretary, Public Relations Officer and other roles. Branch Secretaries also give local advice to members in their area and those who are visiting, and some branches now have their own websites which include local news and directories of branch members.
Any member interested in joining their branch register, getting the newsletter and going to meetings, should contact the local Secretary or contact the Membership Department.
