Constitution Change

Out IN Salford

Our Governance Officer would like to ask you a question about the CONSTITUTION

Hi Vic

Out in Salford’s constitution states that the quorum of any general meeting, which includes the AGM should be 15 members of 10% of its membership.

As membership is based upon Facebook membership and many only want to know what’s going on rather than attend meetings, I feel the quorum should be changed to reflect this.

Therefore I am proposing that the quorum for general meetings and the AGM should be not less 8 members or 10% of the membership.

Many Thanks 

Adrian Palmer

Please indicate with feedback what your answer to this would be or attend the AGM on the 15th April 2015

Anyone from greater Manchester who is part of the LGBT community can take part – what ever their faith. Gaydio are looking for people who may have no experience in radio who want to learn valuable skills and make engaging radio.

Over the course of five evenings you’ll learn all about: understanding radio, the role of the producer in radio, interview techniques, journalism skills, script writing, and radio presentation.

You’ll be asked to contribute ideas and help make a series of documentaries exploring the role that religion plays in the LGBT community in Manchester. The documentaries will then be broadcast on Gaydio and be made available on line. At the end of the project you’ll also get to take part in a Question time type forum where we hope to hear from a range of faith leaders from across Manchester. The training will take place at Gaydio’s studios in Manchester city centre. To find where the studio is click here

Hello

It’s that time of year again when we are looking to recruit as many volunteers as possible for various little jobs in the run up to and on the day itself for this year’s event

What we need is for you to be our ambassador for the event by visiting bars clubs and venues in and around Salford and Greater Manchester to place posters, beer mats and other promotional material into as many gay and gay friendly venues as possible

Likewise if you think of anywhere else you feel would help to advertise this event then please feel free to ask the venue

On the day we need a team of about 25 volunteers to set up, run and take down the event. Keeping everything ticking over is the key for on the day volunteering, keeping an eye on how things are going, using your initiative if you see a potential hazard or risk and keeping the rubbish in check

The event last year attracted around 650 revellers, so this year lets see if we can beat that and get over 1000

This event needs YOU !!

If you can spare some time then contact me on 07792 456478 or email me at info@peelparkpinkpicnic.org.uk
