I'm writing to confirm the details of the upcoming EGM, which has now been booked for Saturday 17th February 2018.
Our aim has been to make sure that we have a cost effective venue, with sufficient capacity to cater for however many members might wish to attend and participate. We also want to make this important meeting as accessible to as many members from around the country as we can.
With this in mind, we have now made the decision to hold the EGM at the International Convention Centre (ICC), Broad St, Birmingham, B1 2EA.
Members will be able to register and get access to the hall from 12:30pm, the meeting will start at 1:15pm. We would expect the meeting to last no more than two hours.
The Party Secretary will be writing to all members via the Royal Mail in the next few days to confirm details with you and to outline how the meeting will run. If you have any questions after receiving that letter then please do contact Head Office who should be able to help you with anything else you might need.
The letter will also contain additional information and directions to help you find the venue, which has ample parking and is less than a ten minute walk from the main New Street station in Birmingham.
Whilst there is no cost to attending the meeting, members are required to register in advance. You can do that by providing your name and membership number on a simple form, found by following this link: www.myukip.com/egm-2018.html
Finally, as part of the agreement we have with the ICC, those travelling by train are able to get a 25% discount when booking advance tickets with Virgin Trains. This means that a standard return ticket from London, booked sufficiently in advance would cost just over £20. Further information about that offer can be found by following this link: www.virgintrains.co.uk/icc
If you have not received your invitation by Friday 2nd February then please contact Head Office who will be able to assist you.
