The Elders Council Board of Trustees is responsible for overseeing the work of the organisation.
The Board is made up of 12 trustees who are elected by the membership at the Annual General meeting.The Board meets monthly. In addition to receiving reports from co-ordinators on the project work, the Board ensures that the Elders Council is represented at key meetings in the city, such as the Age Friendly City Group. Board members also participate in a range of meetings such as Policy Cabinets hosted by Newcastle City Council and an annual meeting with the City Treasurer to discuss the Budget proposals.
If you are interested in becoming a Board member, contact Maureen Tinsley on [email protected] or call 235 9905.
Some of you are getting our new fortnightly ebulletin, the EC Fortnightly. As its title implies, it comes out every two weeks in order to update members on what’s happening in the period between newsletters.
Only 494 members have so far subscribed to this service. If you have email, would you like to add your name to the subscription list? We think that you might find it a useful service to keep you up to date. If you want to receive EC Fortnightly, please ring the office on 0191 208 2701 or email her at [email protected]
Of course, EC Fortnightly requires a bit of work to put together. Would you be willing to join a small team of members to take responsibility for doing this? If you’re interested, please ring Steve on 0191 273 4727; leave a voice message if he’s not in. We would, of course, give you training in the technical aspects of putting the bulletin together.
