There is more than one good reason to attend the inaugural Dairy Industries Expo in Harrogate on 4-5 October. In addition to bringing together the industry, processing machinery and services, packaging machines and materials, turnkey suppliers, quality control and assurance, ingredients and logistics, and demonstrating the latest in dairy innovations and equipment, the Society of Dairy Technology‘s 80th annual general meeting is also being held there. This will be on Wednesday, 4 October, at the Harrogate Convention Centre between 12:30-13:15. There will also be snacks and drinks after the first day’s seminars.
For Society members and other visitors, it will be a chance to both network and browse the exhibition, as well as attend the informative free seminars, which are running both 4 and 5 October. For the AGM, the annual report and accounts are available for Society members and will be available for reference during the meeting. A list of Council members will be available as well.
At the end of the meeting, you will be given the opportunity to ask any questions or contribute suggestions you may like to put forward. If possible, please can you email any questions/suggestions to Marian Pusey, executive director, at [email protected] prior to the meeting. Unfortunately, online attendance will not be possible for the AGM (Annual General Meeting).
As a reminder of the importance of showing up, a quorum is of five per cent of members is necessary to ensure the minimum number requirements are met. If you are attending the Dairy Industries Expo, you should plan on attending the AGM, while you are enjoying your visit.
If as a Society member, you could confirm your anticipated attendance at the AGM by registering on this MS Forms link it would be appreciated. For more information about the Dairy Industries Expo and the link to register please click here. Both events are free, which means you can spend more money at Betty’s Tea Room in Harrogate, or at the local cheese shop.
We are only three weeks away from this show, and I for one can’t wait to see you all up north, with our wonderful exhibitors and their wares.
