    Notice of a General Meeting

    Published 28th November

    NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN to members that a general meeting (the “General Meeting“) of The Britain-Australia Society will be held at

    Australia Centre, Strand, London WC2B 4LG
    13 December 2017 at 4:00pm.

    We apologise for any inconvenience caused but due to a technicality the Special Meeting of 30 October failed to approve the new Articles for the Society. We realise that members may not wish to attend a second meeting but please be advised that your proxy vote will count toward a quorum should you wish to vote in that way.


    In summary, the purpose of the General Meeting is to seek approval from the members to amend the memorandum and articles of association of The Britain-Society to facilitate its obtaining charitable status.

    Please find below links to a letter from the Chairman, Peter Benson AM, and a notice convening the General Meeting.
