I shall be at the AGM, and would be pleased to cast proxy votes for members who can’t be present. Forms in MSWord format can be downloaded at AGM Proxy vote form 2014.doc and must be returned to CILIP by 1.15 pm on Thursday 18 September. Contact me for my address, which you’ll need to put on the form.
