ALIA Annual General Meeting – November 30th

Posted on Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

ALIA is holding its first ever on- line AGM on November 30th.
It’s long been an ALIA tradition to hold our AGM at the end of the first day of the Entech Show, however with Entech being cancelled this year we unfortunately missed out on that opportunity.

As there are unlikely to be any other national gatherings of lighting people this year, ALIA has decided to hold our AGM on-line, most likely using Google Hangouts (we’re still evaluating conferencing apps).

The AGM provides an opportunity for the lighting industry to find out more about what ALIA has been up to and also gives members a chance to become involved with the running of the association by nominating for positions on the ALIA committee, our governing body.

Full details of the meeting and how to nominate for membership of the ALIA committee can be found on the AGM Page.
