The ELISA AGM was held on Tuesday 26th September at the National Library of Scotland.
It was a very successful event with positive feedback from the 15 members who attended.
The event started with a tour of the NLS’s current exhibition led by Paula Williams (Curator of Maps, Mountaineering and Polar Collections). It was fascinating to look at the photographs and to hear the story of the expedition. Paula is extremely knowledgeable about the expedition and the history of the people, places and sequence of events. She made it sound both exciting and poignant. She also gave an insight into what is involved in curating and exhibition and the work that takes place behind the scenes.
The exhibition is definitely worth visiting and the photographs are amazing.
After the tour, there were refreshments and then the AGM.
The AGM deals with the official business of ELISA and with reports from the Business Committee and the financial report. Then reports from sub groups i.e. the Access Group, Training and Development Group and the Web Group.
These reports will be made available via the website as soon as they are available.
