We look forward to welcoming you to LCON’s meeting on the evening of Wednesday 5 July 2023 (19.00 – 20.45). As well as holding our formal Annual General Meeting, we will be introducing our proposed new project, the Oxford Car-Free Challenge. Come and hear from national climate charity Possible’s Director of Campaigns Hirra Khan Adeogun about how previous versions of this project worked. Taking a three-week break from their cars helped participants to see how they could move towards more active travel. We’d like to bring this successful approach to Oxford, and we need your support! Please come to the Jericho Community Centre and find out more about this exciting new initiative.

This is the formal notice of LCON’s Annual General Meeting. All LCON supporters are very welcome to attend the whole evening, but voting at the AGM is limited to LCON members. You can check whether you are a member by following the ‘Update my preferences’ link at the bottom of any of our mailings. If you don’t get mailings from us, sign up here!
The AGM agenda and papers can be found below. We can send a paper copy of the annual report and accounts to anyone who would like one (email us to request this).
Proxy form for members who cannot attend
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. It helps us a lot if you do this, so if you can’t attend, please download and fill in the proxy form, and return it to Rebecca Nestor by 4 July.
We will be delighted to welcome our new trustee Alun Evans to the AGM. He will be standing formally for election at the meeting. We still have vacancies for new trustees, so if you are interested, please get in touch to find out more or visit the post on our website. The AGM is not the only opportunity to join the board, as we can co-opt trustees at any time during the year. 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 have an informal chat, please contact our chair Rebecca Nestor, or feel free to raise this in the informal discussion on the evening of the AGM.
