The 2022 Reunion and AGM was not well supported by Members.  The AGM recommended that the future planning of Reunions be referred to the Management Committee.  While AGMs may be held online under current legislation, reunions require considerable planning and financial commitment.

The Management Committee is now surveying members to ascertain support for attendance at future reunions.  A survey is posted on this website – CLICK HERE – and in TR59.

The future of our Association will be importantly influenced by the responses to the Survey.  So please consider in advance of the survey your interest in the future of the 105th Battery Association.
