Transition Cambridge AGM 2014

Thanks to everyone who came to the AGM. We hope you enjoyed it. You can download the minutes here (4MB pdf)

Monday October 20th at 7:30pm, Friends Meeting House, Jesus Lane in the upstairs meeting room.

This year the agenda will include

  • Review of the year - each group will celebrate their successes in the year and ongoing activities
  • AGM formal business (see below)
  • Brainstorming session about next steps for Transition Cambridge
  • Tea and cake (donations of cake will be very welcome)

Quote from Toni about last year's AGM: "To me, the AGM is one of the highlights of the year because I get to see our joint vision for Transition Cambridge, hearing why everyone else is involved with Transition and what we think we will accomplish together. It's also great to hear what all the groups have been doing - invariably more things and more interesting things than I heard about over the course of each year."

This wordle was created based on the 'looking forward' workshop last year. It is in the 2013 AGM minutes.

We will prepare an annual report based partly on the review: last year's review is here.

For the formal business, only Transition Cambridge members can vote (friends are invited to observe).
