The Nomination of future High Sheriffs
Tuesday 12 November 2019 probably at 2.00 pm
The Ceremony of the Nomination of High Sheriffs will take place on Tuesday 12 November 2019 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 2020, 2021 and 2022 will be read out in court. A tea party will take place afterward at a nearby venue.

The Secretary will be writing in September to all High Sheriffs in nomination for 2020 and for 2021 inviting them to attend. This event provides a good opportunity for those in nomination to meet each other. It may be possible for a few 2022 nominees to attend as well but space in court is limited. The Association will not know the names of the 2022 nominees so it will be up to such nominees or their proposers to contact the Secretary should they wish to attend.
