The Manchester & Cheshire Section Extraordinary General Meeting


25th August 2021
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Event Category:


Format of the event: Zoom Meeting
Date: Wednesday 25 August 2021
Time: 17:00 hrs BST

An Extraordinary General Meeting for members of the Manchester and Cheshire Section of The Textile Institute is to be held to consider the following proposal:


That the Manchester & Cheshire Section of The Textile Institute change its name to the Manchester and the North-West Section.

Background to proposal

The Manchester and Cheshire Section (M&C) of The Textile Institute (TI) has been an active community for many years. Despite the loss of other sections in the region, the M&C Section has withstood the test of time welcoming members from areas no longer served by committees in their own location.

The M&C Section’s current committee, composed of textile professionals from both academia and industry and representing a wide variety of interests, believes there are members in the north of England no longer attached to a particular section and it is these members it wishes to support.

By changing the section’s name to Manchester and the North-West (M&NW) it can reach out across Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire, Merseyside, and Cumbria providing a range of events and activities of interest to all.

A virtual Extraordinary General Meeting will take place at 5.00pm on Wednesday 25 August 2021 during which a vote on the above proposal will take place.

Alternatively, you can:
  • Complete the voting slip, scan and email it to: or
  • Post the completed slip to: The Textile Institute, 8th Floor St James’ Buildings, 79 Oxford Street, Manchester M1 6FQ To arrive no later than Monday 23 August 2021
