2019 AGMs


Invitation to The Annual General Meetings of Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution

16-18, Queen Square, Bath BA1 2HN



Dear Members, 


I would like to invite you to attend the 2019 Annual General Meetings of the BRLSI Trustee Company and BRLSI Charity. The meetings will be held on Wednesday 23 October 2019 starting at 7:30pm with the BRLSI Trustee Company (Company No 02857000), to be followed immediately by the Annual General Meeting of the BRLSI Charity (Registered Charity Number 304477). The Institution will be open for Members to gather from 7.00pm. 


Agendas for both meetings are attached below. 


To submit an item of Any Other Business please can Members write to me, John Gardner, the BRLSI Secretary, to be received not later than Monday 21 October. Please either post any submission to me at BRLSI, 16-18 Queen Square, Bath BA1 2HN, or leave it at Reception. 


Copies of the supporting documents to accompany the Agenda are listed below and are available for viewing at the BRLSI offices and here on the BRLSI website.  


  • Minutes of the last Annual General Meeting for the BRLSI Company held on 24 October 2018
  • Minutes of the last Annual General Meeting for the BRLSI Charity held on 24 October 2018
  • BRLSI Company Financial Statement for the year ended 31March 2019
  • BRLSI Charity Directors’ Report and Financial Statement for the year ended 31 March 2019
  • The 2018/19 AGM Report


Please may I remind you that Members attending the AGM must bring an up-to-date Membership card as our 2018 BRLSI Regulations state that only current Members may attend. Consequently, all Membership cards will be checked at the Reception on arrival, so please ensure your Membership is valid for Wednesday 23 October 2019. Unfortunately there will be no time to process any late applications at the AGM. Our outside doors of the Institution can only be open for 15 minutes after the scheduled commencement of the AGM at 7.30pm and will be closed at 7.45pm. 


Please come along to support those who run this fine Institution. We need a quorum for the AGM of 5% of the Membership. At the last count our numbers had grown by almost 100 since last year to some 800 members, so the quorum will be 40 Members. 


On behalf of the Directors I look forward to seeing you at the AGM. Finally please may I also draw your attention to the attached invitation to the BRLSI Christmas Drinks Party on Saturday 14 December 2019. 



With kind regards, 


John Gardner, Secretary Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution
