Tony Benn to speak at PLASA AGM

PLASA has announced the key details for this year's AGM to be held on Wednesday 6th June at the Hurlingham Club in West London. The AGM is open to all members and is one of the few occasions in the year when members can come together in one place at one time.

Coffee will be available from 11am onwards and the formal meeting will begin at midday providing members with an opportunity to review the current work of the organisation and to contribute to future PLASA policy. The last 12 months have been particularly significant for PLASA and have affirmed its position as the lead professional body for the industry: its development of qualifications for the sector and its high-profile lobbying campaigns on the radio licensing issue have made a critical difference.

Following the AGM, members will enjoy a drinks reception before sitting down to a three-course lunch in the Broomhouse Suite. The keynote speaker following the lunch will be Tony Benn, the longest-serving Labour MP in the history of the party who retired from the House of Commons in May 2001, after fifty years in Parliament, to 'devote more time to politics'.

The AGM and Members Lunch is free to attend.
