You are warmly invited to attend VODA’s Annual General Meeting. Tea and coffee will be available from 10am.

As well as reporting on our activities during the year, we will also be appointing Trustees. We currently have vacancies on our board welcome new nominations. You can find background information about VODA, a nomination form and information about the expectations of VODA’s Directors here.

Following the business of the AGM, there will be an awards ceremony where the Chairman of North Tyneside Council will present awards for the Volunteer of the Year, Young Volunteer of the Year, Trustee of the Year and Voluntary or Community Organisation of the Year. Nominations for the awards will open on 2nd September. Please nominate any volunteers or organisations which you feel deserve recognition for their work. Details of how to make nominations will be available on our webside from 2 September. Businesses which have supported the voluntary and community sector through VODA’s Sector Connector project this year will also be recognised with an award during the event.

A buffet lunch will be served at the end of the meeting and we hope that you will be able to stay to talk to VODA staff and Trustees as well as other friends and colleagues over lunch.

Location: Linskill Centre, Linskill Terrace, North Shields, NE30 2AY
