ETF's Annual General Meeting

Advance Notice

It's that time of year again, where we are starting to make preparations for ETF's forthcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM).  All Member Groups should have received an invitation to submit proposed resolutions and amendments to the constitution.  These need to be submitted to the Federation no later than Friday 5th August 2022.  If you have any queries, please contact the ETF's Office Manager Mary Callaghan by clicking here or phone 0131 475 2509.

We are hoping that this year's AGM will be a Blended Meeting and we're busy making plans to allow this to happen.  The date, time and venue for the AGM will be confirmed in the next few weeks.  Further information, including details about how you can renew your group and individual memberships will be sent out in due course. 

ETF's new office premises

A new era for the Federation

ETF staff are all settled into our new office premises.  We are still based in the Norton Park Centre at Albion Road but have moved from the ground floor to the new offices on the second floor; so only a short lift ride of a difference.  Staff will continue to work from home and come into the office when necessary.  ETF continues to operate on a daily basis and staff can be contacted by clicking here or phone 0131 475 2509.

ETF High Flats Group

Calling all tenants living in high rise flats

It's been a long time coming, but the ETF High Flats Group will soon be holding its first face to face meeting for two and a half years.  The meeting will take place on Monday 29th August 2022, 7.00pm, Birnies Court Community Room, Muirhouse View.  

The guest speaker for the meeting is Councillor Cammy Day, Leader of City of Edinburgh Council and he will be giving an update on the Administration's future plans for moving forward.  You will be able to give an update on what's happening in your local area.  Please use public transport where possible but assistance with transport and childcare may be available on request.  To book a place at the meeting or if you have any queries, please contact ETF's Development Worker Mark Henry by clicking here or phone 07918 742468.
