Dear Haiti Watcher,
On Saturday 29th June, friends and supporters of the Haiti Support Group will be gathering in London for our Annual General Meeting. This will be followed by a social dinner and drinks at the fantastic Grill Shack & Tiki Bar owned by Haitian chef Jean Daniel François.
Our AGM will take place at 2 p.m. 55 Baker Street, and will comprise of a review of our latest campaigns and discussions over future plans. We will also be holding our elections for a new Executive Committee. The following positions are open to election:
HSG EXEC MEMBER
If you would like to be considered for one of these positions, please email [email protected] by 5 p.m. Monday 24 June at the latest. Please include a short bio (100-150 words) and your motivations for wanting to join the HSG Exec. We will share these ahead of the AGM so that those who cannot attend can vote via email.
After the AGM, we will be moving to Grill Shack & Tiki Bar in Shepherd’s Bush for an evening of Caribbean food, music and drink. It is a chance to celebrate 25+ years of work of the HSG and a way to get to know others in the UK who are passionate about Haiti in an informal and fun setting.
Please do email us in advance stating whether you are planning to attend the AGM, the social or both. If you cannot make either but still wish to get involved with the HSG, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please note we are still requesting for donations for our Phillip Wearne Memorial Fund.The page is in memory of our dear friend, ardent Haiti supporter and HSG founder who tragically passed away last year. Any money you give is vital to ensure that we continue campaigning in solidarity with the Haitian people.
Here also is a link to the Haiti Briefing Archive. It is our main publication with analysis . of Haiti‘s development issues, reflected through the voices of popular organisations on the ground. Please share widely as it is a fantastic educational resource.
Thank you once again for your continued support,
Antony Stewart, HSG Chair
