Community Action:MK AGM 2022
Moving Forward, Stronger Together
This year on 20th October, with lockdown restrictions lifted, we are back with our AGM (Annual General Meeting) in the community at Milton Keynes Christian Centre, Oldbrook, MK6 2TG from 9:30am to 12 midday.
Our theme this year is ‘Moving Forward, Stronger Together’. There will be guest speakers, refreshments and a light breakfast.
We are delighted that Dr Rima Makarem, Chair of the Bedford, Luton and Milton Keynes Integrated Care System will be joining us as our keynote speaker. Rima will be sharing the exciting plans and vision for the health and social care system in our region, and how it aims to embed the VCSE sector in its work.
We are honoured to be joined by Vice Lord-Lieutenant Alexander Boswell who will give our welcome address and some insights about the importance of the VCSE. Vice Lord-Lieutenant Alexander Boswell has played an integral role championing the local Voluntary Sector in Buckinghamshire.
This year’s AGM is a time to look back on what Community Action:MK has achieved from April 2021 to March 2022 and to let you know about our plans for the future. It is also a time to say hello to people we already know and to make new connections. With new challenges ahead we will need to continue to work together to strengthen groups and communities in Milton Keynes.
In January 2020 we celebrated 40 years of Community Action:MK at MK Discovery Centre and shared our Annual Review Report for our work from April 2018 to March 2019 . This was to be our last in person AGM due to Covid 19 lockdown restrictions. The following two annual reviews were completed virtually. In January 2021 we held our first online virtual AGM with the theme of ‘Togetherness’ and reflected on our work from April 2019 to March 2020.
In October last year we held our second online AGM with the theme being ‘Many Small Things Make A Big Difference’ and shared our Annual Review Report of our work from April 2020 to March 2021. Our guest speaker was Peta Wilkinson from The Voluntary Sector Alliance and local groups talked about the action they had taken during the lockdown, with many small actions making a big difference.
We are looking forward to seeing you on 20th October!
