HGN AGM: Wednesday 14th April 2021 5.30pm – 7pm
Please join us at this important meeting to elect a new Steering Group, adopt a new constitution and hear about our exciting plans for the future.
As we head out of lockdown and towards COP26 there has perhaps never been a more important time to get more involved with Herefordshire Green Network.
As our organisation and the need for our work in the county continues to grow we are inviting you to join the HGN Steering Group. We need people with varied skills to support and steer our shared work in the county.
Please have a look at the list of Steering Group roles attached here in our Briefing Document (item 3.2) and consider whether one of these roles appeals to you.
If you would be interested to join the Steering Group please contact us:
- Send a short paragraph saying who you are, which role would interest you, and (briefly) what you would bring to the Steering Group.
- No more than 100 words
- Send to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Tuesday 13th April.
We are really looking forward to growing HGN’s opportunity. We are an increasingly recognised and trusted voice in the county, with significant strategic links to complement and support the work of our membership in communities around Herefordshire.
Join us in stepping up to the challenges ahead over the coming few years to 2030.
