AGM and Governance Advice Sessions, 29 November

Our AGM is happening on Wednesday 29 November 2017 at The Ropetackle Centre in Shoreham-by-sea. The main event is from 7.00pm – 9.00pm and we are looking forward to seeing you there.

The evening will include brief formalities, including a review of the year, and an opportunity for members to elect trustees to our board and to approve our annual accounts. The evening will be co-hosted by our trustees and our newly appointed CEO, Jess Sumner. There will also be a keynote speaker.

It will be an excellent opportunity to meet other member organisations, to grab a bite to eat and to raise a glass to the year gone and the year ahead in the sector, and have a chance to meet our new CEO.

5.00 – 6.30  Governance advice session more…

6.00 – 6.45  AGM registration and trustee voting.    !!VOTING CLOSES at 6.45pm!!

7.00 – 8.00  AGM (welcome, keynote speaker, business)

8.00 – 9.00  Refreshments and networking

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

1. Approve our accounts

This will be a simple card vote at the event.

2. Elect our Trustees

We will need to elect 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, and you can find further information about them here and what does being a Trustee entail?

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.
