Once again we have reached that time of year when we are looking to recruit new committee members to move the AAO forward.  Our committee meetings are held by Skype, many of our discussions and decisions are made via email and most work is done outside of committee, so location is no problem and the more people we have involved, the more representative we will be and the more we can do together, to register your interest please contact the secretary at  by the latest 25th August.

You can be proposed or put yourself forward for any of the posts on the Committee, including those where people are putting themselves forward for re-election. Committee meets 7-10 times a year by Skype conference call (including 2-4 times a year face to face) and committee members need to be prepared to carry out tasks in between times for the benefit of the Association on a voluntary basis. If you wish to stand for committee, please notify the Secretary by email or telephone by Friday 25th August stating which role you wish to apply for, and providing a brief statement as to your relevant skills for that position. In the event of more than one person standing for a position, you will need to say a few words about yourself before a vote is made by Members.
