The Nomination of future High Sheriffs

The Ceremony of the Nomination of High Sheriffs will take place on Monday 13 November 2017 in Court 4 (the Lord Chief Justice's Court) at the Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London WC2A 2LL. At this ceremony the names of those nominated for the Office of High Sheriff for the years 2018, 2019 and 2020 will be read out in court.
The Secretary will be writing in September to all High Sheriffs in nomination for 2018 and for 2019 inviting them to attend. This function provides a good opportunity for those in nomination to meet each other. It may be possible for a few 2020 nominees to attend as well but space in court is limited. The Association will not know the names of the 2020 nominees so it will be up to such nominees or their proposers to contact the Secretary should they wish to attend.
