I take pleasure in introducing our annual report for 2016/17, which shows that we are in good shape and making progress across all our areas of activity.
The Ricardian Bulletin and The Ricardian continue to be first-class publications and impressive showcases for the work of the Society. However, our online presence is of increasing importance, crucial for our future relevance and growth. So it is pleasing to see that we now have a presence on Twitter and a Research Blog.
This report provides a useful source of information about the Society and its achievements, at the same time reflecting the dedication and hard work of the many members who voluntarily give their services at both national and local level. We remain an effective historical society, with steady membership levels and the confidence to continue our work to secure a lasting rehabilitation of Richard III’s reputation.
Due to unforeseen circumstances the financial report and accounts are not included with this report. They will, however, be presented at the AGM on 30 September 2017, and will be published in the following December's Bulletin. In the meantime I can assure members that our financial position remains healthy, as the accounts will demonstrate once they are available.
Phil Stone — Chairman
