Join West Leeds Community Media’s AGM – with guest speaker from Independent Community News Network

There’s no doubt that life has been thrown upside down by the Coronavirus pandemic – and West Leeds Community Media’s annual general meeting certainly isn’t immune.

Instead of holding our AGM in the pub or a community centre as we have in previous years, this time we’re holding it in a socially distanced way online, via Zoom.

As well as electing board members, reviewing the past year of West Leeds Dispatch and looking to the future, we’re delighted to welcome Emma Meese as a guest speaker.

Emma manages Cardiff University’s Centre for Community Journalism (@C4CJ) a unique fusion of research and practice committed to developing a strong network of community journalism across the UK.

She’s also a director at the Independent Community News Network (ICNN), a UK-wide representative body for the independent community and hyperlocal news sector, which WLD was a founder member of.

Our AGM is on Wednesday 21st October at 7pm via Zoom.

You’re more than welcome to join our community-led board and our amazing community reporters for this event, simply drop us a line on news@westleedsdispatch.com to book your free place and find out more about community led media in West Leeds.

Please support independent community led media in West Leeds…
