This year our AGM will be held as a virtual meeting, with our annual volunteer awards being moved to 2022 when we hope to do something in the warmer months in person. 

This year we have guest speaker Debra Allcock Tyler the Cheif Executive at Directory of Social Change, talking about her views of the past 18 months and the future for VCSE.

Debra has been the CEO of the Directory of Social Change (DSC) since 2001. She is co-founder and first Chair of the Small Charities Coalition. She is a Trustee of In Kind Direct and the Berkshire Community Foundation. She also is an Africa Advocacy Foundation Ambassador for women and girls at risk of or affected by Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and other harmful practices.

Her experience includes board development, campaigning; policy development; sales, product development, media relations and training which she brings to her current role.

Along with the work she does for a number of charities, the day job and general life, she is an internationally published author of books covering topics such as leadership, management, communication skills, personal development and time management. Recent publications include ‘It’s Tough at the Top’ for Chief Executives and ‘The Pleasure and the Pain’. She is experienced in media, TV, radio, newspaper, magazine and internet features and interviews. She was a regular columnist for a major national newspaper on work-based issues and writes a regular column for Third Sector magazine. She is a renowned public speaker delivering keynote speeches every year to the voluntary, private and public sectors on topics such as relationships between the state and charities, leadership and topical issues affecting the voluntary sector.

The AGM will also reflect on the past year with reports from our Chair, Treasurer and CEO, followed by the formalities. We will also be giving a sneak peek of what is to come for our members as we too review our services.
