The Society held its 182nd Annual General Meeting in Manchester on 6 September. For the first time, the AGM took place during the RSS Conference, a move designed to make it easier for members to attend and participate. RSS president Peter Diggle chaired the meeting and was joined by honorary treasurer Trevor Llanwarne and RSS executive director Hetan Shah.
The major decision agreed and passed by members at the meeting was a small increase in the basic subscription rate from £132 to £135 per annum. The full minutes of the meeting are available for download.
Peter Diggle also announced the names of the five candidates who had successfully passed their Graduate Diplomas in the past year, three of whom had achieved Distinctions.
