Annual General Meeting 2018 - 2019: Overview

Sheffield Friends of the Earth's AGM was held at the April meeting. Shaun presented the comprehensive Annual Review (see next section). Liddy presented the accounts and noted that thanks to a recent donation of £300 the account was still in good health despite having successfully spent most of the ring-fenced Anti-Fracking funds raised from the Burns Night event in the previous year.

Yearly review and accounts -   There was discussion of some of the highlights and opportunities to build on the activities including the Plastics campaign and Anti-Fracking activities.

The local group officers were all re-elected for another year:

  • Co-ordinator - Shaun
  • Chair – Richard
  • Treasurer – Liddy
  • Website and Facebook - Shaun

We discussed possible opportunities and currently unfilled roles including social media. Justin has offered to build up the Twitter account with appropriate branding and postings for the group. Tamara agreed to run the Action Network site which allows us to create petitions. National FoE are able to offer support and training.

Campaign priorities for 2019-2020 – We agreed that Climate Change was an overarching priority and that we would continue to campaign on air pollution, anti-fracking and plastics.
