Lipoedema UK Annual General Meeting
Thursday 24th September
As the year has flown by, it is time for another AGM. Whilst we are sorry not to be able to meet in person this year, we hope you’ll join us online to catch up on what we have been doing.
We love to know how you have been coping during Covid, your views and input about what we’ve been doing on your behalf and we are always keen to chat to people who would like to volunteer or get more involved,
However there are a few formal things we need to do, so the formal agenda will be:
1 – Approve minutes from last year (will send out to attendees by email)
2 – Elect the Trustees: – Sharie Fetzer (Chair), Kate Forster (Treasurer & Secretary), Suzanne Evans and Lucinda Evans are all willing to stand again.
3 – Update from us on what we’ve been doing this year, including our Trustees Annual Report & Accounts (and what our current plans and priorities are as we know it’s hard to just talk about last year!)
If there is anything you want to raise for the agenda please email Joella@lipoedema.co.uk by Sunday 20th September.
Like many other charities, we have seen significant impact from the Covid-19 pandemic, including reduced opportunities for people to fundraise for us. Although there are less events where healthcare professionals are gathering in person, we are continuing to work on raising awareness of lipoedema and continue to need funds.
Please remember your membership subscription helps fund our activities, from our surveys, working with healthcare professionals (like the Royal College of GPs training module which has been free to access for much of the summer this year) to creating new materials for raising awareness of lipoedema, launching our new online Members Health & Wellbeing Community and much more.
Please also spread the word about membership and our resources to both healthcare professionals and people with lipoedema. The stronger our membership, the stronger our voice.
Together we can beat Lipoedema!
We really look forward to you joining us virtually on Thursday 24th September and thank you for your membership and support.
