At AMED’s EGM yesterday 26th May, both Resolutions were approved:
As a result – after some 25 years in this capacity - AMED will be ceasing operations as an educational charity and company limited by guarantee on 31 August. Thereafter, the spirit of AMED can live on wherever there is energy.
Meantime, Trustees are meeting again on 1 June to follow up any detailed implications of those decisions, and to plan an open gathering at Roots and Shoots on 1 July. Here, we can celebrate all we have achieved over AMED’s lifetime, individual Members can decide what to do next, and we can say our fond farewells to each other.
The AMED Office and website will remain active until 31 August, when both will close permanently. The AMED Writer’s Group will continue to convene as usual on 17 June and 19 August, with plans to meet regularly under slightly different arrangements after August.
Watch this space for more details on all this.
Trustees would like to thank all AMED’s Members and supporters for their outstanding contributions over the years, and to wish us all well in our continuing efforts on behalf of a more sustainable and equitable world.
Bob MacKenzie, David McAra, Julie Allan and Rowena Davis
AMED is the Association for Management Education and Development.
We are a long-established membership organisation and educational charity devoted to developing and supporting people and organisations. As an outpost of independence, we serve as a forum for people who want to share, learn and experiment, and find support, encouragement, and innovative ways of communicating. We collaborate with like-minded individuals and networks.
Do you care about the world of work and its impact on individuals, families, society and the environment?
If so, we would love to hear from you.
We are still here
In these times of turbulent transition, we want to reassure all of us that we’re still very much open for business, if not ‘as usual’. We’d like to express our solidarity with everyone, and do all that we can to support and sustain each other in spirit of community and critical friendship. Above all, we wish you well.
Our events continue
Our scheduled programme of events will continue as planned, now virtually, and we’re looking forward to connecting with our networks in this way. As well as addressing the threats and challenges presented by the climate emergency and COVID-19, we remain open to the possibilities and opportunities that arise for doing things differently – and better. We welcome all feedback, suggestions and offers about how we might do this.
Please don’t hesitate to let us know if there’s anything within our powers that we can do to help AMED and the wider community. Our Virtual Office remains open, and Linda will make sure that your message is well received and addressed by whichever of us is most appropriate. Our contact details are:
W: www.amed.org.uk; ; T: 0300 365 1247; E: firstname.lastname@example.org
If any members and networkers would like to share any offers of support directly, please feel free to post them on our Members Offers page.
With very best wishes
