The Colchester & North Essex Branch AGM was held following the event with Sir Bob Russell on 1 October 2017.
Congratulations were offered to a somewhat distant branch member, Lady Sinclair, on her recent 100th birthday.
The Chairman reported on the branch's success in its educational work, particularly public speaking competitions for primary, secondary and sixth form students, most activity being generated by just four people.
The existing officers were re-elected before a discussion on how to mark the centenary of the ESU next year.
