Annual General Meeting 2016
This year’s AGM will be begin at 1.45pm on Saturday, 1 October at the Art Workers Guild. All Fellows and Lay Members are welcome to attend this, the SSI’s main business meeting of the year. If you’d like to arrive beforehand, from 12.15 onwards, with your lunch, then you’d be very welcome to sit, eat and socialise. Tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits will be provided as usual.
We are pleased to announce that the speaker at this year’s AGM will be Terry Johnson, Dip Arch, FCLAS. Terry has now retired from his career as an architect, but his interest in lettering and calligraphy has always run in parallel with his architectural career. He started work in an architect’s office, straight from school in 1962, when all drawings were lettered by hand. Consequently, lettering on buildings has always held a great fascination for him and, over a period of time, he has been collecting material under the broad heading of ‘Letters on Architecture’ to promote lettering to members of his own profession and those interested in the lettering arts. This collecting of material has brought him into contact with some of the country’s leading crafts people, photographers and architects, including some of international repute. Terry’s lecture will begin at 3.00 pm and last for about an hour, including questions.
After the lecture, we will be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the SSI’s Advanced Training Scheme. All ATS students, both current and ex, are invited to bring along one or two pieces of work for display. There will be cake!
The AGM Agenda will be sent to all members via email (or hard copy for those unable to access email) nearer the time.
