Notice of Children in Wales’ AGM

Children in Wales


3.00pm, 20th October 2015




Children in Wales give notice of our forthcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM), to be held on Tuesday, 20th October 2015 at Children in Wales’ offices in Cardiff.

The AGM will be held following the October Policy Council meeting and will provide a networking opportunity for members and non members of the Council during the refreshment break between the Policy Council and the AGM. Professor Sally Holland, the Children’s Commissioner for Wales, will join us during this time.

Call for Nominations

In accordance with the Articles of Association of Children in Wales, I am also writing to seek nominations to the Children in Wales Trustee Board, to take office from the AGM on Tuesday, 20th October 2015. 

Nominations for Trustee Board

This year, two of the current elected Trustees, Dr Iolo Doull and Emily Warren, will have completed their three year term of office and are therefore required to stand down.  Both have now served two full terms of office and are therefore not eligible for re-nomination. Additionally, there is also one other vacancy on the Board. Therefore there are three places available for election to the Trustee Board this year. 

In preparation for this election, please find enclosed nomination papers, together with further details and a description of the role of trustee. 

The Trustee Board plays an extremely important supporting role for the organisation in terms of governance and strategy.  We are also very grateful for the invaluable experience and insight that our trustees provide in relation to all aspects of running the organisation and in representation activities.  It is most beneficial for Children in Wales that the diversity of our membership is reflected within the Trustee Board and I would therefore be pleased if you would consider submitting a nomination. 

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me. I very much look forward to receiving nominations from you by Friday, 11th September 2015 and hope that you will be able to attend the Annual General Meeting. 

Yours sincerely




Catriona Williams OBE

Chief Executive
