March FAB PO meeting

Our next FAB PO meeting, chaired by acting president, Rachel Treloar will be in Port Vendres on 2nd March at 10h30.

We have scheduled the meetings for each month so that one is during the day, one at night and in different parts of the Roussillon so we can get a wide range of people coming to meetings and hopefully get some people who have not normally been able to make a meeting because of location and time.

If anyone has any items for the agenda or would like to speak at the next meeting or come and promote their business or pass on their experiences please email me before next Thursday. Proposed items carried over from the January meeting are:
-changes to membership
-discussion regarding the website and setting up a sub committee to look at what we want and need and how
-Finding a replacement president - suggestions and nominations welcome

Please NOTE:
The next meeting will at Bistrol Le Cortal in Vernet le Bain which is owned and run by Tiffany and David Smith. Date to be decided.

New members are always welcome - please do contact Rachel of Domaine Treloar if you are interested in joining : info@domainetreloar.com
