AGM – another great reason for stocktakers to be an ILTSA member

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Annual AGM & Social open to all members

One of the lesser known benefits of being a member of ILTSA is the annual AGM & Social Weekend.

As those in the industry know, stocktaking can be a lonely world with most stocktakers working on their own & not having contact with fellow stocktakers. The AGM therefore, is a great opportunity for members & partners to meet other stocktakers & partners.

A chance to swap stories, industry challenges and creative solutions. It’s also an opportunity to raise issues and often find someone who will be able to help with solving stocktaking problems.

2017 AGM: Harrogate

The years AGM & Social weekend was held in Harrogate at the Cedar Court Hotel.

Enjoyable local trip

Each year on the Friday of the AGM there is a trip to local point of interest and this year it was to National Coal Mining Museum for England, just outside Harrogate.

This was an interesting visit with an underground tour from a former miner which told the story of mining from the 1800’s to when it closed in 1985. We were equipped with hard hats & lamps & anything that could make a spark had to be left at the surface.

Sociable lunch & dinner

After the underground tour, there was an opportunity to look round the museum above ground before departing to Halifax for lunch at the Wainhouse Tavern, the Tavern was the house of John Edward Wainhouse & was finished in 1877.

After a busy day trip Friday is the formal dinner evening.

Getting down to business

Saturday morning is the serious part of the weekend in which the annual AGM is held. This an opportunity for members to find out what the council have been doing & future plans for ILTSA. This is also an opportunity for members to ask the council questions.

Also at the AGM any members who have applied before the weekend to join the council, will get their application put to the vote by members.

Down time…

The Saturday afternoon is often left for members & partners to do their own thing, then in the evening we all get together again for dinner which is non-formal.

Sunday morning is the time that we have to say goodbye to everyone, hoping to see them at the next years AGM.

Join us in 2018

The AGM is an informative, stimulating and fun benefit of being a member of ILTSA and another great reason to be part of ILTSA.

We would love to see new and existing members at the 2018 AGM & Social weekend, which is planned to be in the north west, in the Preston area.


Beware of the latest scams and fraudsters

ILTSA scam alertThe more advanced technology gets the more sophisticated and innovative fraudsters are getting in trying to catch us all out.

The latest development is social engineering fraud which has been identified by the international police agency, Interpol, as one of the world’s emerging fraud trends.

We thought that ILTSA members would find this article on the BBC website very informative about what to be aware of to protect both your personal and business data from this latest threat.
