What can north Oxford do about the climate crisis? Discussion and AGM, 28 September 2021

Come and help us plan the coming year

We look forward to welcoming you to LCON’s public meeting on the evening of 28 September (18.45 – 21.00). As well as holding our formal Annual General Meeting, we want to talk with you about our priorities for the coming twelve months. It’s a chance to express your views on how you think we can be as effective as possible, and to explore how you can get involved. With the climate crisis intensifying, the stakes couldn’t be higher: everyone is needed. Whatever your skills and interests, whether you’ve got a lot of time to offer or hardly any, please come along and take part.

We hope to be meeting in person at the Woodstock Road Baptist Church (corner of Woodstock and Beechcroft Roads). If Covid makes that unwise, the whole meeting will be on Zoom. If we go ahead with the face-to-face format, we will offer Zoom as well for those who can’t get there or are not comfortable with an indoor meeting. This page will be updated with the final arrangements a week before the meeting.

Doors will open at 18.45 for a prompt 19.00 start and the AGM. Following a short break with light refreshments, we will continue at about 19.45 with a presentation of our plans for the coming year and small-group discussions about how we can make our plans as successful as possible and how you can get involved. The meeting will end at 21.00.

Everyone concerned about climate change is welcome to the whole evening, but at the AGM only LCON members can vote.

Annual General Meeting

This is the formal notice of LCON’s Annual General Meeting. Everyone is very welcome to attend the whole evening, but voting at the AGM is limited to LCON members. 

The AGM agenda and papers can be found above or at this link. The agenda includes links to the documents, including the annual report and accounts (combined in one document). There will be limited copies of the report and accounts at the meeting, and we can send a copy to anyone who would like one (email us to request this).

This year we have a special resolution involving a constitutional change. This is in response to changes in the City Council ward boundaries, which affect the definition of our area.

If any members cannot attend the AGM, they can appoint a proxy to vote on their behalf. The proxy can be any member, including the chair. If you wish to do this, please fill in the proxy form and return it to Rebecca Nestor by 7pm on 26 September. 

Interested in becoming a trustee?

We still have a few vacancies for new trustees, so if you are interested, please get in touch to find out more. The AGM is not the only opportunity to join the board, as we can co-opt trustees at any time during the year. We are particularly hoping to broaden the diversity of the board and especially encourage people of colour, younger people and men to consider the role. You don’t need specialist knowledge, though this is always welcome: we want people who live in our community and care about climate change. To find out what is involved and for an informal chat, please contact our chair Rebecca Nestor (chair@lcon.org.uk), or feel free to approach any of the trustees on the evening of the AGM.
