Annual General Meeting Notice |
House of Boyd Society 2009 AGM & Gathering of the Clan
Responding to the Call to the Clans
We are extremely pleased to announce the 2009 Annual General Meeting is to be held in Edinburgh, Scotland the first weekend of July 25th & 26th 2009. It will be in conjunction with The Gathering 2009, Holyrood Park, Edinburgh, Scotland.
The festival site is located at The Gathering 2009
AGM Committee is forming. Leadership meets monthly via Yahoogroups. We forward to hearing from members interested in serving. We anticipate opening the Yahoogroup to the general membership sometime around the first of the year. Please contact the Executive Board to let them know of your interest in helping to plan the AGM. We need your input and your expertise! Do not be bashful!
Plan on marching in the Clan Parade down the Royal Mile with us on Friday evening, attending the games and spending some time at the clan tent on Saturday and Sunday. We have not yet determined where and when the meeting will take place.
Plan on joining the Clan Historian, Mike Boyd of Australia, for the week preceeding the AGM on tours of Boyd related areas and archives that hold Boyd genealogical and historical records. More details will be available later via the Dean Road and on this site. In the meanwhile you may contact Mike at his Society email address Historian@clanboyd.org. While Mike leads the HBS Ireland Annual Tour 2008, he will be traveling to Scotland to do some preliminaries for next year's tour of Scotland in conjunction with our AGM. Mail sent to him late August through the end of September 2008 will have a delayed response while he catches up from his trip.
We would like to hear from any that are interested in attending so we may better plan for the event. We have ordered a small space as the cost is so dear, however, if there is to be a large turnout of Boyds from 'round the world, we will need to plan to upgrade SOON. This is your opportunity to gather with other members of the House of Boyd from around the world, get to know them and share your ideas. This gathering in Scotland is an Historic event. Please do plan to find a way to join us on this momentus occasion. If you are interested in volunteering, at the tent or events on the AGM weekend, please let us know. We will welcome your assistance.
General Information re the festival is available on The Gathering 2009 website and they produce an electronic newsletter that you may subscribe to. The event is coordinating and publicizing travel and accomodations. However, you may want to watch this site also for updates. We have members who are travel agents who are coming forward to offer advice and assistance.
Please direct your questions and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org We'd like to know where you would like to attend future AGMs.
