Our New Name07-November-2016
The former WEA YMCA CC Cymru held an Extraordinary General Meeting on Saturday 5th November, which heralded yet another significant step in the organisation's long history, where the membership voted overwhelmingly to move forward under a new name – Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales.
Of the voting outcome, the Chief Executive , Mark Isherwood, noted that, “This is a momentous day in the organisation’s history. Much work has been done to bring us to this point and it is extremely gratifying to move forward with such a positive message from our membership.”
The organisation is looking forward to a formal launch in 2017, and preparations to embed the new name across its learning provision and the sector is in full swing. “Wide- ranging activity is underway to move to our new name on every level – from both internal and public-facing perspectives. The fruits of this work should place us in a very strong position as we look ahead to our formal launch.”
“Details of the launch are to be announced nearer the event’s date. In the meantime, Addysg Oedolion Cymru | Adult Learning Wales proudly proclaims its arrival and looks forward to building upon all that’s gone before.”
