Annual General Meeting and feedback event
Annual General Meeting and feedback event
 Dear Friend,
Re: Annual General Meeting and feedback event
Northern Pride Events Ltd is a not-for-profit, community organisation that aims to promote equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.
In July we held our Ninth ‘Newcastle Pride Festival’ with over 73,000 people engaging with this year’s festival and 12,500 people marched through the City of Newcastle.
We were also proud to have had amazing support at host of other events throughout the year.
We warmly invite you to attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM). This is your opportunity to influence the work of Northern Pride, give the directors your feedback and elect the new directors for the coming year.
We are hoping that this evening will be an interactive, enjoyable affair, with the majority of evening dedicated to discussing how Northern Pride can continue to grow and to hear your views.
The meeting will take place at Dance City on Friday 23rd September 2016, we will start the event at 6.00pm. Please let us know by Monday 19th September 2016 if you have any access requirements, which we will endeavour to meet.
Alongside hearing and discussing your feedback, there is some short formal business that we are required to consider at our AGM:
  • To discuss and accept the Annual Report
  • To discuss and accept the End of Year Accounts
Northern Pride can only continue with your ongoing support; we are constantly seeking people to get involved. Alongside the great volunteers at the festival and the many unseen helpers in the run up to the event, a small group of dedicated individuals help to coordinate the festival and other evets we run throughout the year. If you are interest in getting involved please contact the Chair, Mark Nichols
You don’t need to be a member to attend or give your views. However, if you would like to vote or stand for election then you must become a member. It is easy to become a member; you just need to turn up to the AGM and fill in the sign-up sheet. The only requirements are that you support our aims, are aged 16 or over and are willing to pay a fee of £1 in the event that the organisation disbands.
We hope to see you there and look forward to hearing your views so that we can improve Northern Pride for everyone.
Yours faithfully,
Mark Nichols
