The Billet furnishes members with information about Statutory Half-Yearly Meetings, along with the Agenda and supporting papers and details about the regular post-meeting lunches and after-lunch speakers. More detailed information can be found here on the website at: http://www.general-council.ed.ac.uk/whats-happening.
This is the first time for some years that Billet has been published separately from Edit, the alumni magazine. For the past two years Edit has been published annually in winter, but in 2017 it moves to a summer publication, to align better with the cycle of the academic year. The electronic version of Edit is available online at www.edit.ed.ac.uk, where you will find a new supplement each month, plus all the articles that are published in the annual printed magazine.
We hope that you enjoy this concise winter issue of Billet containing the papers for the Half-Yearly Meeting to be held at 10.30am on Saturday 18 February 2017.
Wherever you are, we hope that we inspire you to reconnect with Edinburgh – you can do this by attending the General Council Half-Yearly Meetings in February and June, and the Alumni Weekends in June, sending us your favourite student memories or connecting with us online.
The Annex to the Billet contains additional material for each Half-Yearly Meeting, including communications from the University Court, full Standing Committee reports, a transcript of the presentation at the previous Meeting, and the Business Committee’s report to the previous Meeting, and in the Summer issue the Principal’s presentation on the Annual Report of the University to the General Council at the previous February Half-Yearly Meeting.
General Council members who wish to have a copy may collect the Annex from half-an-hour before the Meeting, or request it by post from:
