By now, Parents and Carers should have all received a letter informing them of an upcoming extra-ordinary general meeting at Cottontails. This meeting will take place on 12th June 2017 at 8pm at the Cotton Hall. The EGM has been called by the current committee to discuss the formation of a new committee at the next annual general meeting in October.
Cottontails is a charity, committee run pre-school. Our current committee is comprised of nine members, including a chair person, a treasurer and a secretary.
We need to recruit a new chair and secretary at the very least and I hope that we can also find people to take on roles in recruitment, fundraising, web and publicity. Training is given for all roles and there is lots of support available for new committees from the local authority and the PLA (Pre-school Learning Alliance).
As I mentioned in the letter, the Pre-school Learning Alliance has written a booklet called, “Volunteer for your Pre-school Committee” which has information about the roles and responsibilities of being a committee member. You can download this here.
If you have any questions about how Cottontails is managed or would like to discuss being a committee member, please email me.
I look forward to seeing you on June 12th.
Chair of Cottontails Management Committee
