Our formal Annual General Meeting – attended by Trustees, Company Members and the Senior Leadership Team – was held last week. The event saw the voting in of two new trustees and the reappointment of existing trustees.
Dr Rowena Hill, Principal Lecturer at Nottingham Trent University and Harvey Grenville, Head of Investigations and Enforcement at the Charity Commission, became our newest trustees, while Andy Hickmott, CFO Warwickshire; Chris Wilson, Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service; Roddy MacLeod, advocate at the Scottish Bar and former retained firefighter, and Andrew Lynch, Chair, were all re-elected to the Trustee Board.
The meeting also saw the formal acceptance of the Charity’s accounts for 2016/17 and the approval of our auditors. Discussions also took place around last year’s achievements and our Impact Report, there was an update on progress towards our Strategic Plan and an overview of recent activities and our income and generation strategy.
