The Annual General Meeting was held (as has become the norm) at Il‐Hagar Museum on Victoria's Pjazza San Gorg on Sunday 21 January 2018. Besides the usual reports, the event included the distribution of certificates, medals and other prizes (with MaltaPost as main sponsor) to November 2017 GPS Exhibition participants.
