The Institute’s 2012 AGM will take place on 27 October 2012, at the Union Jack Club, Sandell Street, London SE1 8JU.

This is your chance to meet many of your fellow journalists, to socialise, network and exchange views.

It is also an excellent opportunity to meet the President, Vice-President and Council of the Institute, to hear about the activities and achievements of the Council’s sub-committees, the Professional Practices Board and the various CIoJ charity committees, and to help shape the policies and programme of the CIoJ and the IoJ (TU) for the year ahead. You will also receive details of the satisfactory financial situation of the Institute in a time of economic challenge.

By the time we meet, Lord Leveson will be preparing to report his findings on the investigation into the phone hacking scandal. The Institute, and our members, will need to be ready to respond in order to protect the freedom of the Press.

Then there is the perennial matter of copyright – not the dry subject you might imagine. It has been caught up in a serious struggle between the ‘everything should be free’ camp headed by Google and the music publishers, media giants and film companies seeking to protect their income. And where do we stand as creators of the material in the forthcoming Copyright legislation?

As you may have read, Ofcom is currently in the process of awarding licences for local television stations. We need to make sure that those companies awarded licences fully commit to their news obligations and we hope to have a speaker from one of the companies bidding for a licence.

There will be a social dinner in the evening at the Conference Centre for which all members may purchase tickets and invite a guest.

One day for all this and we will provide lunch as well! – Look forward to seeing you!

Register your attendance by contacting Diane or call on 020 7252 1187.
