Update on the Forum’s 2020 Annual General Meeting
Nomination of Members of the Executive Committee for 2020 – 2021
Our AGM was due to take place on 30 June but obviously current government regulations on large gatherings prevented this. We are investigating the possibility of holding it online as well as looking at new dates later in the year. We will let you know as soon as it is decided so check back here and/or look out for emails from us. (So make sure we have your email address if you have one).
If you would like to become a member of the Executive Committee or nominate someone you can download the nomination form from here. Some of our current members are willing to continue but we are keen to recruit new members who will bring fresh ideas and energy. As you can see, all members will have a specific responsibility and we are especially keen to find someone who has an interest in social media to be part of the team. New members will be paired with one of our existing members to help familiarise them with the role.
The office at Millfield House is currently closed to visitors due to the lockdown, so we would like to receive completed nomination forms by email – there is no need for a signature! Please send them to Tony Watts (Secretary) – firstname.lastname@example.org or Christine Whetstone (Chair) – email@example.com
We are really sorry to have had to cancel meetings and other Forum events but obviously we all need to play our part in slowing the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
We have, however, produced the latest Forum Focus and it should have been delivered to members’ homes by now or find the newsletter here. There are many issues that still need addressing, including campaigning for a better bus route to Chase Farm.
Our Fairer Funding Campaign also continues with the Enfield Declaration on Fairer Funding, signed by a wide range of local community leaders, being sent to the relevant Government Ministers.
We urge everyone to follow government guidelines during these difficult times and we look forward to the time when we can meet again in person.
