Ok, a general invitation is fine (I've found the discussion in the IRC log, but I can't see it in the minutes - all decisions need to be minuted), but you'll need to give some thought to how you are going to conduct the meeting. I can see two options - separate seating areas for members and non-members, or voting cards. (If we have a very small turnout we can just rely on the chair knowing who is and isn't a member, but hopefully we'll get more people than that!) I know some people think I am being overly formal and strict about this kind of stuff, but the AGM of a limited company, particularly a charitable one, is a serious event and needs to be handled properly. This isn't just a bunch of people from the internet getting together for a pint and a chat about what we're going to do, it's an official meeting of the membership if a charitable company. _______________________________________________ Wikimedia UK mailing list wikimediau...@wikimedia.org http://mail.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediauk-l WMUK: http://uk.wikimedia.org
