You may wish to note in your diary that the 2017 AGM will be held on Monday, 26th June at Ashville Lodge, Ashville Road, Birkenhead. The meeting will start at 1.30 p.m. All members and supporters of the Society are welcome to attend but only full members of the Society who have paid their subscriptions for 2017 are entitled to submit motions or nominations, or to vote at the meeting.
As usual, the meeting will consider the financial report and accounts, staff reports on the year’s activities, any motions submitted for discussion and the election of a chairperson, directors and officers.
The formal agenda and reports will be sent to members by post on 12th June. These documents will be printed in 16-point type but they can be made available in braille or audio formats on request (you’ll need to contact Ashville Lodge on 0151 652 8877).
Motions or nominations must be received at Ashville Lodge by 12 noon on Tuesday, 6th June, delivered by hand or sent by post, or submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations need to provide the name and address of the proposer and the person to be nominated, and should include a short profile of the nominee. The nomination must be signed or endorsed by the person proposed indicating their willingness to stand (a separate note or e-mail will be accepted). Profiles longer than one side of A4 may be returned for revision if time allows. Alternatively, they will be terminated at the foot of the A4 page.
Any member unable to attend the meeting can appoint a proxy by completing a proxy notice by 23rd June – blank forms available from Ashville Lodge. Karen or Lynne may also be able to help if you have any queries.
