Central Branch Membership
The Central Branch has approximately 72 members who in turn arrange holidays and visits for thousands of members of their groups. AGTO Members have the opportunity to experience familiarisation events that are organised by the Central Branch Committee. Normally, there are four such events per year and information is sent to each Member well in advance of the event. From these, Members can gain valuable information on how to structure their own group events as well as to share their own experiences with one another.
Attached to each of these events is a short Branch Meeting at which the Committee report to Members on matters connected with the Branch and gain comments and suggestions for future activities from them. A further source of valuable information and ideas comes from articles in the Branch Newsletter. This is published four times per year and principally contains information provided by Members.
