21 March 2018Friends of Highland Music AGM
This year's FoHM AGM was held in The Waterside Hotel, Inverness on Wednesday 21st March 2018. The Meeting was attended by 13 Members with 5 proxies being recorded, and apologies received from 23 other Members.
The business of the evening was conducted efficiently with the Annual Report from the Committee along with Accounts and Previous Minutes being delivered and approved. Three Resolutions were approved as previously circulated; a maximum of 10 committee Members, annual subscription period 01 January - 31 December, and Accounts to be Independently examined. Subscriptions were retained at £5 per annum, with £10 for a family.
The current Committee either continue in office, or were re-elected after their current two-year tenure. Suggestions for future Society activities were recorded by those present during refreshments.
A demonstration of solo Bagpipe playing was made by Our Music Grant recipient Kyle Cameron, and this was enjoyed hugely by all. It was most gratifying to see and hear such an accomplished young player who is also testament to the benefits of FoHM funding. Videos were shown afterwards with footage of the recent concert at the end of the Voyage of the Hector Ensemble weekend described elsewhere in this website News Section, along with footage of the joint venture by FoHM with Feis Inbhir Narainn, the Come & Try It Tent at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in August 2017.
Thanks to all who attended and supported the AGM.
