Liverpool & District General Branch
Annual general meeting this Wednesday
Our annual general meeting is on Wednesday November 4 at the Everyman Theatre at 6.30pm.
Come and meet your new committee or vote to co-opt some new faces to the committe. And don't forget to give a big thank you to the outgoing committee, some of whom have agreed to continue in their roles for the branch.
Have a drink and a chat in the Everyman bar afterwards. It's a great way to network.
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.
