Event description: The Management Committee have decided to hold a separate Annual General Meeting, when you will be able to hear about all our work over the last 12 months. We will also present our accounts for approval.

AGMs can often be an “off put” for Members so our plans is to have one key speaker to enthuse and inspire. We are very pleased to announce that “key” speaker is Sue Bott CBE

Sue was born in Shrewsbury and now lives in London. She has had a visual impairment since birth and has been active in the disability movement in the UK for many years. Her current job is Director of Policy Services & Development at Disability Rights UK, which is a merger of the National Centre for Independent Living (of which she was Chief Executive), and Disability Alliance.

Prior to this Sue spent several years working for Shropshire Disability Consortium.

We hope to announce details of a guest appearance from a local arts group.

There will be opportunity to network before, during and after the meeting. For all other details of this meeting, including apologies, please contact Russell our Secretary.
