Annual General Meeting
and Conference Weekend
Each year the National Association of City and Town Sheriffs holds their Annual General Meeting and Conference Weekend. It's a time to review the function and progress of the Association and to bring current and past Sheriffs together to share ideas and celebrate the historic Office of Sheriff.
The yearly Sheriff's meetings together with newsletters and, more recently, the NACTSEW website
ensure that current and past Sheriffs continue to work for the good of this historic Office and that none should experience their year in Office in isolation.
The Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) underpins the aims of the Association and introduces the current Sheriffs to the rest of the Members.
It is a time to reflect on the previous year and to note any changes or amendments made by the local authorities of the Towns and Cities that retain the Office of Sheriff pertaining to the Office.
The AGM provides the opportunity for Members to review and make any changes to the Constitution

The Conference Weekend
Following the AGM and after a light lunch, Members and their consorts are invited to participate in one of a number of select tours, visits or experiences chosen or organised by the host Members.
Each town or city that retains the Office of Sheriff has a rich and fascinating history and, very often particular assets that warrant being 'shown off' to fellow Members for their enjoyment and learning.
A formal, black-tie dinner, usually with a guest speaker, is held
in the evening.
The AGM Conference Weekend concludes with a procession of current Sheriffs in full Robes and Chains of Office to the Paris Church or City's Cathedral for the Sunday Service.
Sheriffs prepare to process to the Church of St James, Poole, 2015 led by Dorset's High Sheriff and the Sheriff of Poole, Xena Dion
