Charities Services Annual Meeting 2021

Published 29 October 2021.

Registered charities are warmly invited to attend our Annual Meeting on Friday 29 October 2021, 10.30am – 12.15pm.

At Charities Services we’ve been considering the best way to host our 2021 Annual Meeting. We value being able to engage with charities face-to-face, as well as giving charities the opportunity to engage with each other. However, the uncertainty caused by COVID-19 means we will host a digital meeting this year.

The meeting will be held over Zoom and will include speeches, followed by a discussion and Q&A session where attendees will be able share their feedback and questions with other attendees and Charities Services staff.

  • Address from Priyanca Radhakrishnan, Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector

  • Address from Maria Robertson, Deputy Chief Executive of the Department of Internal Affairs

  • Address from Mike Stone, General Manager of Charities Services

  • Discussion and Q&A session

Registration closes on 27 October 2021.
