Annual General Meeting
Saturday 11 May 2019
10:30 – 12:30
Belmont Park Hut
We are looking for people to become trustees and hope to appoint some new trustees at the AGM. Perhaps you are interested…
What is a trustee?
The NCA is a type of charity known as Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). Its affairs are run by between 3 and 12 trustees.
What are a trustee’s responsibilities?
Trustees are responsible for running the organisation, furthering its aims in good faith and to the best of their abilities. Some trustees take on specific roles aligned with the knowledge, skills and experience they have gained from other parts of their lives.
Do trustees of the NCA have any financial liability?
Who can become a trustee?
Pretty much anyone who is a member of the NCA and who is over 16 can become a trustee. NCA membership is open to anyone who supports the purposes of NCA; most members live in or around Newtown but that is not a requirement.
That is just a quick summary. You can find full details – very full details in fact (!) – from our constitution, which is available here.
Vision Project Approaching Completion!
The new Community Building in Belmont Park is coming along fabulously and should be complete May / June 2019. The current Hut will be in use as usual until the new building is ready.
There was a well attended open meeting in the old hut on the 23d of February at which the usage and management of our fabulous new community building was discussed. Lots of good ideas. Come along to the AGM (on Saturday 11th of May at 10:30) to find out more.
The grand opening will be on Saturday June 29th starting at 11am. Save the date!
The open day will showcase the new building and the various groups and activities that will be going on there. Details about using part or all of the building for your own event, regular or one-off, will be available and people from the community association on hand to meet you and answer any questions about the NCA and this fabulous new community facility.
Go to the Vision page for full details including the site plan which shows the areas that will be affected.
The Friends of Belmont Park group (part of NCA) are looking for ideas and funds to upgrade the play area – please get involved.
Did you know that you can practice yoga in the Hut on Monday evenings?
