Invitation to an Open Meeting of the Deaf Community – Deaf Village

Deaf Village

Invitation to an Open Meeting of the Deaf Community and Deaf Organisations regarding the development of the Deaf Village / Centre Project

Saturday 2nd of July in St. Vincent’s Centre beginning at 8.15pm

Dear all,

As you may be aware the construction of the Deaf Village/ Centre Project is now underway. The developer Sisk is on site with a scheduled finish date of August 2012. This is a good time therefore to show the final plans and to agree with the Deaf community the process for the next stage of consultation around layouts, colours, gardens etc.

Most of the Deaf organisations have been participating in a Committee – the Management Company Committee. The Committee has been designing the Company which will govern and manage the Village when it is built. The Committee held a meeting with the Deaf community in June of last year to consult on the initial ideas about the Management Company. Now the Committee has designed the Memorandum and Articles of the Company i.e. What the Company will do and how it will manage itself and who will be on the Board of the Company. This detailed document is a legal one which is required when you set up a Company and it is attached to this email . The Committee has also produced (via IDS) an ISL video explaining this legal document (Memorandum and Articles of Association) will be sent to you next week and should be shared with all your members. This video will be shown and discussed at the meeting.

Finally the meeting will discuss the name of the Village – the Management Company Committee asked a Public Relations expert to offer some initial ideas on the name and the logo; these will be discussed at the meeting. Currently the name on all the documents is the National Deaf Centre / Village but this is temporary until the Deaf community have decided what name is best.

Tea and coffee will be available from 7.30pm on Saturday the 2nd of July.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the meeting.

Yours sincerely

Liam O’Dwyer CEO of CIDP on behalf of the Management Company Committee
