AGM 2016 – 5th December

We warmly invite you to attend NACCOM’s first Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Monday 5th December from 1.00 – 4.30pm at the King’s House Conference Centre.

The address is King’s Church, Sidney Street, Manchester, M1 7HB. Please see this link for details on how to get there.

We are holding this AGM for three key reasons:

1) As a registered CIO (since 2015) we need to gather members to vote on the appointment of trustees and to receive our accounts.

2) We will also be sharing our report on the Annual Accommodation Survey and launching our 2020 Vision, identifying ways that as a network we can work together to see a reduction in, and call for an end to, destitution.

3) This year marks 10 years since NACCOM started, so we’ll be looking back on stories and ideas that have made a difference in the last decade.

The Agenda is set out below. There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions and vote on the appointment of Trustees at the event.

Please note this event is free but you need to register via Eventbrite

We are keen to enable as many NACCOM members as possible to attend, so we are offering up to £50 per organisation in travel subsidies for those who might struggle to come otherwise. Please note that funds are limited and will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis. Therefore please let us know by the 1st December if you would like to take advantage of the subsidy, so that we can ensure access for as many members as possible.
