Stokey WI AGM- Monday Nov 14th

Our annual general meeting is on Monday Nov 14th, which means re-electing a committee. We will be in the upstairs room from 7.30 at The prince on 59 Kynaston Road, Stoke Newington, London, N16 0EB. There will be a small charge of £4 per head for members, and £5 for non members to cover a couple of drinks.

Some of our current fabulous committee members who have done such an incredible job over the last year, will be standing down, what with babies, toddlers and moving they can no longer devote the time they'd like anymore.

If we are to keep the Stokey WI alive, we need some more dynamic ladies like the out-going committee,to assist with the running of the group.
So, it's time for us to put our thinking caps on ladies, and start saving Stokey WI!

We need a minimum of 3 members on the committee for the group to survive,If we cannot fill these roles, then the group will sadly fold.

We would love to get some new members too, so if you know any local Stokey ladies that would love to join us, then send them along in November or get them to e mail stokenewingtonwi@gmail.com

The minimum number of roles for the committee is 3, a Treasurer, a Secretary, and a President. This structure does however put a lot of work on each committee member, so we are hoping to split the roles up a little.
In addition to the 3 roles above, We'd love to have an events co-ordinator who will liase with venues and speakers
We'd also like a couple of designated Photographers who will take pics at each event and get them to the website co-ordinator
We'd like someone to take responsibility for the blog and social media stuff.
We'd like a couple of deputies- this are committee members that will stand in for various roles on days when the members need to be absent.

If you're interested in any committee roles, or just in helping out a bit, then please do drop us an email stating how you'd like to help

Before the AGM, we'll be sending out a survey asking about speakers you'd like to hear, events you'd like us to run. We need to find out what direction our group needs to go in, and even if Stoke Newington wants a WI group.

If you've got any suggestions e mail us on
