Celebrating a successful AGM

Our AGM was held on the afternoon of Thursday 15th June at M&B Sports & Social Club, Dagenham.

Our AGM was held on the afternoon of Thursday 15th June at M&B Sports & Social Club, Dagenham.

Trustees, commissioners, clients and staff all attended to review DABD’s year 2016/17 including our financial reports.

Speakers included Chair Peter Snell, Elaine James, Sally Wells from Vistage and Andrew Williams. 

Peter talked about how he had first become aware of DABD’s work and how refreshing our approach is, while Elaine spoke about DABD’s journey over the last 25 years and what this means personally to her.

We were also delighted to be joined by Cllr Abdul Aziz, the recently appointed Mayor of Barking & Dagenham. Cllr Aziz has chosen DABD as one of his charities of the year and we are very grateful for his support.

Cllr Aziz presented two Employee Recognition awards on the day. One to Anna Wells, Director of Operations, for Excellence in Organisation (which speaks for itself!) and one to Dawn Cock, Transport Development Manager, for Risk Taking which recognises the positive chances that Dawn has taken over the years for her Division which have definitely paid off in the new contracts she has won.

Well done to all staff who were involved in the preparation and planning of a successful AGM.
