You are cordially invited to attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on the above date and time at the University of Suffolk, Lecture Theatre 1, Waterfront Building, 19 Neptune Quay, Ipswich, Suffolk IP4 1QJ.
Our AGM provides us with an opportunity to connect with the community, showcase our work, celebrate successes and reflect on key events. It is also an opportunity for our membership and the wider community to help shape the agenda for the future.
This is the first Annual General Meeting since the launch of our Suffolk Law Centre and the theme this year is “It Takes a Village to Raise a Child”. This is the name of the Take Your Place project we did, whose report we are launching on the day.
This year’s meeting will be chaired by the Deputy Mayor of Ipswich, Councillor Sarah Barber.
We are looking forward to inspirational presentations by the following Key Note Speakers:
- Susan Belgrave, a prominent black Barrister who specialises in Employment, Discrimination and Human Rights Law. She is recommended as a leading Barrister in Employment Law in the Legal 500. She is also a Trustee of the British Foundation for The University of the West Indies and interested in BME social mobility.
- Piers Harrison-Reid, a performance poet, spoken word artist, live literature entrepreneur and A & E nurse in Norwich. Piers was Essex slam poet champion in 2012 and he recently did a piece to celebrate NHS @ 70.
- Sandy Martin (Member of Parliament) will say a few words at the event. Sandy is a former Trustee and ardent supporter of ISCRE.
In addition, we will have a powerful and emotive migrant stories short film presented by a group from Northgate School, as well as delicious food from local restaurants. We pride ourselves on putting on an exciting and interactive event for our AGM and we very much look forward to seeing you there. Your support for the work we do is vital. If you wish to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 01473 408111.
