NTBCC AGM & June meeting – In Person or via Zoom : Monday 13 June

For the first time in over 2 years, NTBCC’s June meeting will be an ‘in-person’ event in the main sanctuary of Broughton St Mary’s Church on Bellevue Crescent.

This will start with the Annual General meeting (AGM), immediately followed by our normal June meeting.

  • In order to gauge the number of attendees, we’re asking everyone to register if they plan to attend in person via the Eventbrite link here.
  • There will also be an option to attend virtually – if this option is desired, please register via a separate Eventbrite link here to receive the Zoom details.

We have been exploring options for holding for hybrid meetings and now believe that with the new facilities available in Broughton St Mary’s , we are more confident of being able to successfully hold a hybrid meeting but with the focus on it being an in-person event.

The full agenda for the AGM and June meeting will be published soon on our website, www.ntbcc.org.uk/meetings/

We look forward to as many residents as possible joining us for this as well as local councillors – both those newly-elected or those who have been re-elected folllowing the 5 May Council elections.

Next NTBCC meeting – Monday 9th May – Agenda items & Registration

NTBCC’s next meeting will again be held via the Zoom platform on Monday 9th. Although we have explored options for holding for hybrid meetings, based on the experience of other events – we are yet not confident of being able to successfully hold a hybrid meeting with the current facilities available to us.

However, in line with feedback from a recent poll amongst NTBCC members,  there was some support to return to in-person meetings in the summer. Consistent with that, the intent is for the June NTBCC meeting (which includes the Annual General Meeting ) to be our first in-person meeting for over 2 years – to be held in the sanctuary (main body) of Broughton St Mary’s church. This will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

The full agenda for the online May meeting will be published soon on our website, https://www.ntbcc.org.uk/meetings/

We look forward to as many residents as possible joining us for this as well as local councillors – both those newly-elected or those who have been re-elected folllowing the 5th May Council elections.

For those that wish to attend – please register via Eventbrite using this link

We look forward to as many residents as possible joining us for this.

Edinburgh Council has stated that ‘CCs can approve minutes, and take other decisions, remotely’, as so long as they ensure that ‘remote meetings are as accessible to members of the public and (as) well-advertised as possible’. Continue reading
