Congratulations and well done! That's fantastic.
Unfortunately, it seems the planned AGM date clashed
with Easter and
had to be push back (ironically, my first proposed date for the AGM
clashed with Christmas and had to be pushed back!), so it's still
going to be ages until we get an AGM. If we bring it forward a week,
it clashes with the chapter meeting in Berlin, which means we won't be
able to have full attendance (unfortunate, but perhaps not a deal
breaker). Bringing it forward a fortnight seems impractical (probably
possible, though, if we really want to). It seems there isn't a good
option, we're at the point of trying to find the least bad option.
I shall have to get my membership form in
once I have money :-) I am very pleased that
this much progress has been made, the last
thing to tick off the list is the tax exemption
and we will be a proper proper chapter :-)
Though anything beyond this is pretty much
uncharted waters in terms of a chapter in the uk :-)
