The Keynsham Area Forum meeting will also include the AGM and elections for the Chair and Vice Chair positions.  Attached within the paperwork is the nomination form for these roles.  All members of the Forum are eligible to put forward a nomination and self-nominations are accepted.  Please return your nomination forms to Sara Dixon or myself prior to the meeting, or alternatively hand in your nominations at the start of the meetin

The role of the Chair and Vice Chair will be to promote the work of the Forum, act independently and ensure the priorities and issues for the whole area are raised.  They will be required to attend additional meetings and be involved in agenda and work planning.  Please ensure that your nominated candidate has agreed to stand for the position and is willing to say a few words about themselves at the Forum meeting.

We look forward to seeing you on the 30th November.
