President’s Report for the Annual General Meeting 2018-19, due to be held March 2020

The coronavirus measures mean we had to postpone our AGM for 2018-19 and our last lecture of the 2019-20 season. At this stage it is not clear for how long we need to self-isolate, but EGS will cancel the April-June excursions now and review the summer programme on a monthly basis as advice changes. It is likely more excursions will be cancelled and we will be unlikely to use coaches this season. We will also explore web lectures and individual field trip guide opportunities during the summer and for next season. In the meantime we hope you manage to get out alone (or with the dog) to keep “geologising”.

The AGM is an important part of the year, and indeed there is an obligation for EGS to hold one. You have all seen our Annual Report, but I thought it might be useful to write a short commentary and add a few things about the last few months and a look forward to the future. Please do contact me if you have any questions or comments.
