AGM and Governance Advice Sessions, 21 November

Booking is now open for our AGM and Governance Advice Sessions.

Attendance is FREE, but places must be  booked in advance

This year we are hosting the event at 1st Central County Ground in Hove with a panel of speakers, buffet and governance sessions in addition to the business of AGM.

We would be thrilled if you could join us at our AGM to reflect on our work over the past year and the issues currently affecting our sector. In addition to the formal business of the AGM the evening will include governance advice sessions for trustees and management committee members on a range of topics including HR, Finance, Equalities and Diversity and Charity Law. We are also planning hustings in advance of the Brighton & Hove local elections next year.

The AGM is the perfect opportunity to network with other member organisations from Adur & Worthing and Brighton & Hove, meet your newly elected reps and hear from the staff and trustees of Community Works while enjoying a bite to eat and raising a glass to the year ahead. The event is free and everyone is invited but we ask that you limit attendance to 2 per group/organisation and make sure that one of those coming along has voting power. That way we can make sure that as many groups as possible can take part.

5:15 – 6:30           Governance Advice Sessions (optional)

6:00 – 6:45           AGM registration and trustee voting (voting closes at 6:45)

                            Food will be available during voting and registration.

6:45 – 7:30           AGM

7:30 – 8:30           Hustings (details tbc)

If you are attending on the night and your organisation is a member of Community Works we would like you to do two things at the event:

1. Approve our accounts

2. Elect our Trustees
We will be electing some new and some returning trustees this year, and require your vote to welcome them to the board. You will be asked to vote for as many trustees as you like on the night. Further information will be available shortly.

Please note if you are attending on behalf of a project which is part of a larger parent organisation, there is one vote which is cast on behalf of the parent organisation.
