As well as reporting to our members on our activities during the year, we will also be appointing Directors and Trustees at the AGM. We currently have vacancies on our board and welcome new nominations from our members. Contact our Chief Executive Robin Fry for more information on this.

Following official AGM business and guest speaker (to be announced very soon), there will be an awards ceremony where the Chairman of North Tyneside Council will present awards for the Volunteer of the Year, Young Volunteer of the Year and Voluntary or Community Organisation of the Year.

Businesses which have supported the voluntary and community sector through our Sector Connector project this year will also be recognised with an award during the event. A networking buffet lunch will be served at the end of the meeting.
