Our annual general meeting for this year is now scheduled.
It’s happening online from 2.00-4.30pm on Saturday 25th September.
The first and last 15 minutes of the time are not for general meeting business, but arrival, departure, that sort of thing. So, if you’re the type of person who tends to arrive 10 minutes late to everything, aim for 2.00 and the 15 minute window has you covered. And if you’re the sort of person who’d like some social time before or after getting to the nitty gritty of meeting business, these 15 minutes either side are designed for that too.
There will also be a short break mid-meeting.
Community involvement is central to what we do at Phoenix Song. We welcome involvement through the year, but the general meeting is specifically designed to give a change to feed back to us how we’ve done over the past year, hold us to account, and be part of shaping what’s next.
We’ll go through a summary of what we’ve done over the past year, and also a summary of accounts. There will be time to hear proposals for the organisation and our activities, share ideas, ask questions, and learn about what being on the committee is like and think if you would like to join us.
We welcome attendees from across trans and non-binary communities. You do not have to be based in Bristol, but it probably makes more sense if you’re someone who has, has thought about, or plans to come along to things we run – so location likely fits in there too.
If you cannot come along, please do still get in contact to feed in your ideas in the weeks before and after the meeting. We want to make this process as inclusive as we can, and that includes by maximising how people can take part even if they cannot get to the set meeting time. We can still include you in mail outs about agenda, reports, and proposals, and take your responses to these really seriously.
Or you can drop us a line through social media.
(If you’re already in contact with Francis, it is absolutely fine to get in contact with them about attending too. We’re at an in-betweeny time when it comes to email addresses for Phoenix Song. If Francis is your go-to, use email@example.com.)
