Annual Convocation at Rugby
posted on 17 March 2015
The venue and date for the Provincial Annual Convocation has been announced by the ME Grand Superintendent. After many months of seeking a new venue to host this prestigious event and after significant investigation into available venues which meet our requirements and match our budget, the venue and date of the 2015 Annual Convocation have now been finalised. The 2015 Annual Convocation will be held at 11.00am on Saturday 4th July 2015 at Rugby College, Rugby. Application forms and full details will be issued soon to all Chapter Scribe Es.
The College was opened in 2010 and is a modern, purpose made facility that ideally meets our requirements. The Annual Convocation will be held in the Sports Hall which gives a large open area which meets our needs with rooms available for Companions to robe etc.
The Lunch will be taken in the College Refectory, which has a bright, open outlook on to a Courtyard which, if the weather is kind, may also be used for enjoying pre-lunch drinks. The menu offered by the College Chefs is excellent and will provide a splendid Summer Lunch.. Details and a booking form will be issued to all Chapter Scribe Es over time and posted on the Website.
This change to a Saturday meeting from the usual Tuesday will hopefully enable more Companions to attend the Annual Convocation and it is hoped that all Chapters will be represented, particularly by their Principals. The venue is situated near the M6 and a short distance from the Railway Station
