ACCT AGM, Wednesday 27th January 2021, 7.30-8.30pm

Please come and join us on a device screen near you for the ACCT Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 27th January, 7.30-8.30pm on Zoom. If you’d like to join us at the AGM, please email enquiries@acctsheffield.org.uk and we will send out the Zoom link near to the AGM date.

In this short meeting for ACCT members and anybody else interested, ACCT trustees and staff will update you on ACCT’s achievements and our finances, we elect trustees to serve on the board, and we appoint an accountant to carry out the independent examination of our annual accounts that charity law requires. The meeting is focused on 2019-20 and the annual report and accounts for that year. As 2019-20 now feels like absolute ancient history, we will also take the opportunity to talk with you, the ACCT membership, about what we’ve been doing this year and our plans for the coming year.

The agenda for the AGM and the minutes from last year’s meeting, as well as the 2019-20 annual report and accounts are all available to download from here. If anybody has any questions for us about the annual report or anything else ACCT-related in advance of the meeting, you can ask via enquiries@acctsheffield.org.uk.

We are always interested to hear from people who are interested in getting more involved in ACCT, and that includes joining the ACCT board as a trustee. You can join the ACCT board at any time – you don’t have to do it at the AGM. If you’re interested, contact us at enquiries@acctsheffield.org.uk and we can give you more information about what’s involved and invite you along to a meeting as an observer so you can decide whether it’s right for you. At the AGM, one third of the existing board resign and can stand again for re-election. This year, long-standing trustees Claire Dyson and Deborah Young will be standing for re-election. We’re hugely grateful to Claire, Deborah and the rest of the ACCT board, who give their time, energy and expertise to help lead our work.  

In all honesty, AGMs aren’t always the most scintillating of meetings, but they are really important, so we hope you’ll consider logging in for an hour (maybe a bit less) and joining the conversation! Email us at enquiries@acctsheffield.org.uk to get the Zoom link for the AGM. We hope to see you there.

Best wishes,

Danny and the ACCT Team
