AGM 2016: ARC goes to Nottingham
Hopefully you will know by now that Committee have made the decision to move the AGM and Dinner out of London and this year we will be using the excellent facilities at the University of Nottingham.
As a result we have changed the format of the AGM so that it is now spread over two days and the AGM and Dinner are now in April as opposed to our more traditional date in May.
The formal notice is in the box on the right and below is the schedule for the two days:
12 April 2016
9am-12pm Leadership Academy courses
12pm-1pm Lunch for delegates on arrival
6.30pm Drinks reception and the Annual Dinner
13 April 2016
1pm-4pm Leadership Academy courses
You will see from the timetable that the deadline for motions is earlier than in previous years so Centres will need to arrange meetings to discuss and agree any motions they wish to move at the AGM before 23 February 2016.
The AGM will be held in the Clive Grainger building and will start on the afternoon of Tuesday 12 April and conclude at lunchtime on Wednesday 13 April. Exact timings will be confirmed nearer to the time but we will expect delegates to arrive from 12pm on the Tuesday and a buffet lunch will be provided prior to the start of the AGM. Lunch will also be provided after the AGM concludes on the Wednesday.
Leadership Academy courses
The change in format of the AGM has allowed us to arrange with HMRC to provide three Leadership Academy courses for delegates at the AGM. The courses are:
Leading in a Digital Workplace
Implementing a Continuous
The Power to Engage
As you can see from the timetable the courses will be split over two days with part one being delivered on the Tuesday morning and part two being after lunch on the Wednesday.
The courses will contribute to meeting delegates’ commitment to five days CPD and five days Leadership Academy so ARC are pleased to be able to provide access to this learning during the AGM.
Given that the courses will have an early start on day one some delegates may need to stay over the night before and any costs incurred will have to be met by the delegate’s business area. Delegates may want to discuss this with their manager before booking.
Demand is likely to be high for these events so book early to avoid disappointment.
