The Althing held an online AGM recently and elected office bearers. There is a new chair and vice chair.

Unfortunately no new members were willing to join the committee, so it was decided to keep activity on hold until there are more volunteers and rules relax enough to hold a physical or hybrid physical/online debate - perhaps this Spring if all goes well.

It is a very depleted committee and like many organisations the Althing is suffering from lack of volunteers. Anyone willing to get involved is invited to get in touch.

The group is trying to compile an email list of Althing members to make sure folk are kept updated. Anyone can become a member and it is currently free to join. Contact the secretary at or visit the Facebook page @AlthingShetland.
