Annual General Meeting (AGM)
The AGM will take place as part of the Members' Conference. As a hybrid event, it will be simultaneously broadcast on Zoom meeting. Whilst the conference is open to all, only the nominated representative (i.e. the primary contact) of a member centre, or their appointed proxy, may vote in the AGM.
English UK is working hard to reduce waste so no paper copies will be provided at the meeting.
The AGM's purpose is to:
- Allow members to receive/ endorse reports from the trustees on the achievements and work of the association over the year including the annual report, financial accounts and complaint cases heard by the English UK Ombudsman
- Announce the results of the board of trustees elections, if applicable
- Consider any nominations for honorary members or fellows
- Make any changes to the association's rulebook or constitution, if necessary
- Discuss other matters that affect the association.
During the AGM, members will be encouraged to vote on matters on the agenda and to ask questions. Voting will take place via on online platform if required.
Debating conference motions
Immediately following the AGM, there will be another closed session to allow for the debating of any conference motions. Conference motions are a way for a member centre to put forward a matter of policy, or any issue of concern, they would like to the wider membership debate (see rules S6.5.3 and S7.5).
Any proposed motions should be sent in writing to the chief executive. To allow adequate time for debate, members are encouraged to submit these by Wednesday 10 May. Whilst motions may be presented at short notice i.e. on the day, they must be presented at least two hours before the start of the conference and only very limited time may be available for their debate.
Voting on any conference motions will take place via an online platform. Although these motions are not binding, they can help convey to the board of trustees and the exectutive the opinions of member centres.
