Not The AGM! Chairs Report 2015 Meeting in Northampton

The Bad News:
The board has had a lot to deal with this year in running the charity and has suffered as a result of the serious ill health of staff at CO and members of the board. Please be patient when calling CO as they are really stretched and some staff are agency so may not be familiar with our procedures yet.
The Good News...

Jane Stott - New trustee

We welcome Jane Stott as a new co-opted trustee to the Board.

She has skills in strategic management, managing people and organisations, and team building, and also as a meditation teacher and workshop leader. In addition, she claims to be good at baking cakes but the other trustees haven't put this to the test yet!

Healing For Nepal

Healing Trust Members!

We, the Board, are sure that you have all watched with horror the results of the earthquake in Nepal and many of you will have responded already in a number of positive ways.

We feel, as the largest Healing organisation in the UK, and probably the world, that we should do something collectively to help both the direct victims and their relatives in Nepal because we all believe that Healing is a powerful tool which can help alleviate the suffering of others.

Meet your Regional Committee and Board of Trustees

Your Regional AGM will be held sometime this Spring at a venue near you. This is a great opportunity to meet local fellow Healers and hardworking members of your committee.

The Board of Trustees are travelling about the country, visiting each AGM, and we really look forward to seeing you all then.

AGMs are a celebration of the Region's work, and often include refreshments and a spiritual event, talk or workshop. The meeting includes voting for your local committee, so remember to bring your paid-up membership cards!
