Madison Recruitment

(Note - due to the Labour Day holiday we have moved this meeting out a week.)

This year we will be combining our AGM with a presentation of the results of the recent salary survey, conducted on our behalf by Madison.  Notice of the meeting, along with the nomination and proxy forms are attached.

We wanted to ensure we could get the results of the survey out to members as soon as possible, but mindful the year is rapidly coming to a close so holding an additional event was not feasible.

The year of Zoom is over, and we are getting back to ‘in real life’ meetings.
