Like all Neighbourhood Houses, Reynard Street Neighbourhood House is managed by a voluntary Committee of Management, made up from members of the local community.

At present, our Committee members are:

Phil Day (Chairperson, Public Officer)

Kat Thorn (Deputy Chair)

Celia Torres-Villanueva (Secretary)

Owen Martin (Treasurer) 

Matt Dravich

Erin Dale

What is the RSNH Committee of Management (CoM)?

 

Our Committee of Management (CoM) consists of at least six volunteers elected at the Annual General Meeting of RSNH by those members of our Association (House members) who attend the AGM on the day.

 

The CoM provides RSNH with community “governance”, which includes developing strategic plans, policies, permanent staff appointment, budgeting and overseeing delivery of legal and contractual obligations. The CoM acts as the voice of our membership in line with the Aims and Objectives detailed in our Constitution.

 

The Committee is required to meet a minimum of six times per year, but currently meets monthly on a Tuesday evening between 5.30pm and 7pm.

 

AGM 2022

 

Our 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on

A free community lunch will be served at 12.30pm
