    Welcome to the Society's Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2024

    All members are encouraged to attend and have their say. It's a chance for us to get together and give the Society an annual check-up!

    We will hold a hybrid AGM - we will meet in Stockholm but will host the meeting online too.

    What happens at the AGM

    At the AGM, the board will report back to the members on what has been done during the previous year, how money has been used, and will answer questions and discuss ideas for the coming year.

    Documents will be available at the member-only section of the website by 10th April at the latest: AGM documents

    Motions from members to be submitted latest 3rd April.

    Afterwards refreshments will be served and the new board members will have a short meeting.

    Elections

    Elections will be held for board positions. Regular positions are held for 2 years, and deputy positions are 1-year posts. A deputy position is a great way to test the waters. Email us ASAP if you would like more information.

    Members from outside of Stockholm are particularly encouraged to join the board! Our meetings are almost always online these days and we want to strengthen the society in other regions.

    Eligibility and registration

    Active (i.e. paid-up members, not lapsed) members are eligible to attend, and members who have joined/renewed more than 30 days prior to the meeting may vote.

    Advance registration is required.  As refreshments will be provided we ask that you register before 7th April if attending in person, and by 14th April if attending online.

    Thanks to the Embassy of Ireland for agreeing to host the meeting in their office space. We hope to see many of you there!

    Bernard Farrell's comedy "Canaries".

    Canaries is a comedy about an eventful holiday in the Canary Islands.  Tommy and Marie meet up with Jane, Richard and their gang. A whole lot of drinking, deception and amusing incidents follow and Tommy and Marie end up having a holiday that they will never forget – but not necessarily for the right reasons!

    First performed on stage at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin in October 1980.  Since then it’s been a great hit with audiences around the world. Bernard Farrell's works have been described as "cleverly shaped with a keen sense of absurdity".
