If you are unable to attend the meeting in your own area, feel free to join one of the others. In any event, please advise the appropriate contact of your intention to attend as soon as possible but at least seven days before the meeting.

The sessions are, as ever, intended to be informal opportunities for Charity Stewards to meet their PCAs, discuss any issues that cause them concern and receive updates on the latest Charity topics. The Briefings this year will include a short talk by one of the Members of the MCF, they are the Provinces representatives at the MCF and also a short presentation will be given by a representative of CHOICES. There have been many changes to lodge Charity Stewards since the end of the Festival and I hope all new Charity Stewards will attend with their Worshipful Master who will gain a better understanding of the duties of his Charity Steward.

Whilst these get-togethers are primarily intended for charity stewards, they are open to anyone with an interest in charity – a potential charity steward perhaps? I encourage anyone with such an interest to attend, advising the appropriate contact accordingly.
