AGSI Countdown to Elections


AGSI are now preparing for a busy season of elections with the 2012/2013 Branch, Executive, Trustee and Presidential elections looming.

We are now reminding members to put these important dates in your diary.

As part of our campaign to engage more members in Branch and Executive roles we are launcing our “Branching Out” campaign highlighting the importance of getting more involved in AGSI at Branch and Executive levels.

Our campaign aims to give you an insight into how effective and important Branch and Executive positions are to achieving the over-arching goals of AGSI.

For now please see below a schedule of important dates to put into your diary.
