7pm – 8pm in the Pre-school building
What is the AGM?
AGM stands for Annual General Meeting. The meeting lasts about an hour and is an opportunity to hear what has happened at Pre-school over the last year with reports from the Chairperson, Manager and Treasurer. It also includes electing a new management committee for the coming year.
Who are the management committee and what do they do?
The management committee is made up of parents of Pre-school children who volunteer a little bit of their time to help guide Pre-school decisions. As a charity it is compulsory for us to have at least 3 people on the management committee. Without this, Pre-school would have to close.
The committee meets just once a term, either on zoom or in person, to talk about any issues affecting Pre-school. They also carry out fundraising activities for resources and maintenance, and the more committee members we have involved, the easier this is.
What experience do I need to join?
No previous experience of being on a committee is needed, just a willingness to get involved! As a few committee members are leaving this year we are looking for a Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer and do chat to Angela if you think you might be able to take on any of these roles, but you can also join the committee without a specific role.
What about fundraising?
Fundraising is a key part of what the Management Committee do. Helping at fundraising events, such as cake sales, school fairs, and car boot sales is entirely optional and everyone just gives what time they can. It really is a case of the more the merrier with these events and all the money raised goes towards making Pre-school the best place it can be for our children.
Who should I talk to if I have any questions?
If you have any questions please do talk to Angela, or email Evelyn Cookson, the current Chairperson on firstname.lastname@example.org.
