Venue: Studio 3, Toynbee Studios, 28 Commercial St, London E1 6AB
The AGM of Arts Development UK is this year is taking place on Friday 7th April 2017 at 13.30 in Studio 3, Toynbee Studios, 28 Commercial St, London E1 6AB. The AGM will also include a networking forum considering regional development.
2016/17 has been both a challenging and rewarding year for us. Our membership has again been extended to a wider catchment of arts organisations and individuals and our professional fellowship programme has also gone from strength to strength. Our members continue to face challenging economic circumstances but we are pleased to report that we have been able to maintain membership numbers in 2016/17. We want our association to continue to have influence with policy makers and funders and have a key role in training, developing and representing our profession. To do so we need to appoint a new National Trustees Committee, and this year the Officer positions of Vice Chair and Treasurer are open for nomination, together with 2 further Trustee appointments. Please note that the appointment of each officer is for two years.
We are also seeking the appointment (or re-appointment as incumbents can be accepted for a further 2 years of service) of half of our regional coordinator positions. These are 2 year appointments and we are requesting that half of incumbents voted in last year stay on as Regional Coordinators. This means that we are also seeking nominations for one regional coordinator in each of the following areas:
- East & West Midlands Region
- Eastern Region
- North West Region
- South East Region: (2 positions are available)
- South West Region (2 positions are available)
- Yorkshire & the NE Region (2 positions are available)
- South & West Wales
- North & Mid Wales
These will be for 2-year duration and are advisory and development positions. If you wish to either stand for any position, or nominate a person for a position, we have developed nomination papers through Survey Monkey and you can complete your nominations online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ADUKAGM2017 on or before Friday March 10th 2017, so that nominations can be presented to the AGM on 7th April. If you need information any of the positions, please contact Pete Bryan on 01269 824728 or email ADUK on artsdevUK@aol.com. We look forward to seeing you at the AGM in April in London.
