Preparing for our AGM - words from our Co-Chair Alex

16.11.16

My dear Mum and Dad used to say that I should make the most of every waking minute because time goes by so quickly… It doesn’t seem a year since we were preparing for Action Hampshire’s 2015 AGM and time has flown by!

This has been another challenging and busy year for Action Hampshire. Like many not for profit organisations, we have been subject to further funding cuts. This has focused the minds of the Trustees and senior management team. As a Board, our aim has been to ensure that Action Hampshire delivers an effective service to its members. We are in the midst of a strategic review which encompasses future delivery of services as well as diversifying our expertise to attract commercial interest. More of this will be covered at the AGM.

In the meantime, I do want to thank Sue Dovey, our CEO, her senior management team and the entire staff at Action Hampshire for their hard work and commitment. Furthermore, I would like to say a big thank you to my Trustees who have been hugely supportive throughout the year.

Looking forward to meeting many of you at our AGM on 17th November.

Alex
(Joint Chair, Action Hampshire)
