On behalf of Tim Cuddeford
Chair of Trustees, Nystagmus Network
If you would like to join us as a member and enjoy the right to vote as well as other member-only benefits, please visit our membership webpage. Thank you.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of belonging, of knowing that you’re part of a wider virtual nystagmus community and among friends, all working for the same goals as you.
That’s why the Nystagmus Network is a membership organisation.
The more people we represent who are living with nystagmus, or have an interest in the condition, the better able the charity will be to influence real change and to make your voice heard.
Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting 2020 of the Nystagmus Network will take place virtually, online on Saturday 25 September 2021.
Members of the Nystagmus Network have already been notified and will receive the agenda and minutes from the AGM 2019 no less than 14 days in advance.
Nystagmus Network Chairman, Tim Cuddeford has sent a Christmas message to members of the Nystagmus Network.
Tim spoke of the challenges that 2020 has brought for everyone, not least the nystagmus community, but also highlighted the successes the charity has been able to achieve, thanks to the support of our intrepid fundraisers and donors and the generosity of National Lottery players and those who donated to the charity’s BBC Radio 4 appeal. The team has continued to provide support and information services, albeit virtually, and even fulfil research investment commitments, whilst adapting services to meet growing and changing needs.
The charity looks forward to a happier, healthier and safer New Year for all.
