Trustee board meeting in July

Our last board meeting was again full of lively discussion.

We’re lucky to have a group of trustees with such a diverse mix of skills, experience and views, which enables excellent debate and constructive decision-making. Our meeting was kindly hosted by the Crown Office Chambers.

There was discussion about the progress of our set up work in Adur and Worthing and in particular around staff recruitment and office space for the area. We’re excited that set up of our services in the area is going well, and that we’ve a number of events and activities planned in the area for the autumn. Organisations from Adur and Worthing will hopefully also attend our next members conference on 13 October.

Our annual accounts for 2015-2016 are ready for our members to sign off at our annual general meeting on 8 November. They show another financially successful year for the organisation.

There was also a discussion on building our membership further. And trustees agreed to ensure more organisations know about the benefits of being a member and to encourage them to consider joining.

Trustees also noted the good work and commitment of the staff team through a time of change and cover for those on leave over the summer period, which has been greatly appreciated.
