Orkney Heritage Society’s Annual General Meeting will be held on 19th November 2020 at 7pm.

Despite the global Covid-19 pandemic crisis, OHS has had another busy year and there is much to hear about and celebrate. The AGM provides an opportunity for members to get together to exchange ideas for future activities of the Society. This year the AGM will have to be held virtually, which gives more people the chance to attend.
The meeting will be on Zoom at 7.00pm on Thursday 19th November 2020. To receive a link for the meeting please go to Eventbrite by clicking on this link:
This will allow us to collect e-mail addresses and so confirm which attendees of the meeting are members.

One of the key topics for discussion is the adoption of a modified Constitution. Below you will find a link to a document outlining the proposed changes and the reasoning behind them, along with the existing and proposed constitutions. Also the 2019 AGM Minutes, 2020 AGM Agenda and Trustees’ Report.

As ever there is an opportunity to get involved and this year there are vacancies on the Board. We are therefore looking forward to welcoming new members to the Board and would hope you will consider standing. Normally, meetings are generally held every six weeks on an evening in Kirkwall and last for about two hours. This year our meetings are online.

However, please do not be put off attending (virtually) the AGM if you don’t want to stand. The Society needs all its members, and you will be very welcome irrespective of whether you can get involved.

Please email secretary@orkneyheritagesociety.org.uk if you would like more information.

Following the conclusion of business, Caroline Wickham-Jones will give a short talk on Heritage past and future and OHS Secretary Neil Kermode will give a short presentation on the challenges the Society sees coming and to explain the Society’s campaigning this year.
