The AGM timetable is:
As an experiment, this year we are splitting the traditional Annual Gathering into a less formal Folk Assembly in July and a formal AGM in September.
This years Folk Assembly will be at the Youlbury Scout Centre in Oxford from the 8-10 July. It will be a gathering of Woodcraft Folk members from all over the country where we'll share skills, discuss the things that matter to us and enjoy each others company.
The key dates to remember in the run up to this year's Annual Gathering are:
We at Woodcraft we believe that all young people who want to should be able to take on leadership roles in a way that best suits them. But what is a leader? A leader comes in all sorts shapes and sizes.
Below is a summary of the achievements Woodcraft Folk has made as part of our work on the Big Plan, our organisational strategy for 2008 - 2013. This PDF includes work by a range of different Woodcraft groups, committees and teams, towards a range of Big Plan ambitions. It was displayed at Annual Gathering 2013 in celebration.
Annual Gathering is the democratic heart of the Woodcraft Folk, but it’s so much more than that. As well as celebrating our achievements over the past year & electing our General Council, we discuss future plans for the movement, share skills & experiences, and enjoy each other’s company in true Woodcraft style.
This year's second Development Conference is happening at the YHA in Bristol. It will be a chance for all Woodcraft members, whatever their age and role in Woodcraft Folk, to get together for socialising, workshops, discussions on current Woodcraft topics, and generally sharing ideas and friendship.
Theme: youth participation
Bring your ideas, vision and experience to make Woodcraft Folk inclusive of all ages and supportive of young people’s participation and development.
