The National SSAGO Exec
Tuesday 22nd of June 2021
We are delighted to announce that we will be holding a SSAGO EGM to elect Easter Ball 2022 and Summer Rally 2022. Make sure to register to vote at vote.ssago.org today!
Summer is here, exams are (hopefully) over, and it's time for a SSAGO EGM! The past year has been an uncertain period for SSAGO, with events and elections delayed, cancelled or held online. Now, we are nearing a period of more certainty, and so we are looking to return to face-to-face SSAGO events. We need to look towards electing the following events for next year:
Easter Ball 2022: This is traditionally the SSAGO formal event in the Easter period. We recognise that finding a traditional ball venue within such a short time period may be difficult, so we suggest looking at places, venues and styles of event that are less traditional than a formal event yet still retain a formal element. However, rest assured that any member of SSAGO since the pandemic began will be able to attend the next suit and tie ball in 2022 or beyond!
Previous balls have been Aber Does ABBA Ball, Yule Ball Ball and Bath Masked Ball!
Summer Rally 2022: This is normally the smallest of the three rallies every year, typically held in June/July.
Previous summer rallies have been Scot Rally, Duck Rally and Leeds Around The World Rally!
Who can run for a SSAGO event?
Anyone who is a member of SSAGO! Get a group of SSAGO friends (or members of your SSAGO club or region) to come together and form a committee, ensuring that you all have a genuine commitment to run your event if elected.
