CIC Update

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

MadLab-CICThanks to everyone who came down last week for our first Community Interest Company (CIC) meeting.

We talked about the benefits that being a CIC would bring – including formalising our existing informal structure, how being a CIC would make it easier for community groups and members to further develop their careers and access grants and funds as well as putting in place an ‘assets lock’ meaning that assets and profits are dedicated to the community.

MadLab is becoming a CIC

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Help shape our future!

It's your MadLab!

It’s your MadLab!


MadLab is becoming a Community Interest Company (CIC) and needs your help.

Please come along on Tuesday 23rd April at 7pm to find out how you can get involved.

For example, we’d like to hear your ideas on what might form the “Community Interest Statement (CIS).”

A CIS confirms that the CIC will provide benefit to the community. It does this by describing its intended activities – including who they will help, and how.

What – and who – do you think MadLab should be concentrating on?

We are also keen on hearing from people who’d like to join MadLab’s new Management Committee. There are nine spaces on this new group – five from local partner organisations, and four from the community.

The Management Committee will meet once a month and decide upon all aspects of MadLab’s vision and strategic direction.

Please register so that we can get an idea of numbers/ bottles of Marble/ lemonade to order!
