Camcycle AGM 2019 – Winning hearts and minds

The next Camcycle AGM will be held from 10.30am to 2pm on Saturday, 19 January 2019 at Clay Farm Community Centre in Trumpington [get directions], just off the Busway cycleway.

We’re trying something new this year to make our AGM more accessible, enjoyable and useful to more people and our theme of ‘Winning hearts and minds’ is sure to offer something for everyone. Please register your attendance now to help us plan.

We’d like to welcome all members, supporters and stakeholders to this event which we hope will be our biggest and best AGM yet! Learn more about cycle campaigning and our work over the past twelve months, and take the opportunity to share your ideas for Camcycle’s work in the coming years. Our agenda for the day will include morning tea, a Camcycle update, the official AGM, panel discussion with three inspirational guest speakers and an interactive campaigning session over lunch. Undoubtedly there will be an unofficial pub stop in the afternoon as well.

We will share our agenda in the new year, and our AGM packs and Annual Report will be available on the day. If you’re interested in volunteering on the day to make our AGM a success or even becoming a trustee to help lead Camcycle’s work in the new year, then please do read on below.

New ideas for winning hearts and minds in campaigning

We’re pleased to announce three inspirational speakers for our panel discussion this year, and we can’t wait to hear about their insights about communications, influencing and campaigning. All three women have extensive experience and work and volunteer in many roles, so we’re dedicating a blog post to each.

Join our board of trustees

If you have been thinking about taking on a leadership role, then now is the time to get in touch for a chat. Meet with our Executive Director or one of our trustees to find out what responsibilities come with trusteeship and the work that we expect will be required next year. Our current trustees have worked hard over the last year to complete key strategic projects and to improve

our governance and this work will continue in 2019 as we introduce some big changes to support the growth of Camcycle. It’s an exciting time to be involved! Contact us to arrange a meeting, for more information on trusteeship or if you’d like to propose a motion to be put to the AGM. Nomination forms and more information can also be read online.

We’re particularly keen to add trustees with fundraising and human resources experience to our board. Do you know someone we could speak to?
