The Society’s AGM will be held at Ashville Lodge, Ashville Road, Birkenhead, at 1.30 p.m. on Friday, 27th June 2014. The business to be transacted at the meeting will include the Treasurer’s financial report and statement of accounts for 2013/14, staff reports on the Society’s activities during the past year and the election of Chairperson, directors and officers.
All current members will be sent the formal agenda and reports by first class post on 12th June. All documentation will be printed in 16-point type but will be supplied in braille or audio formats on request (contact Ashville Lodge on 0151 652 8877).
Any motions to be set down for debate or nominations for the election of Chairperson, directors or officers must be received by the Society by 12 noon on Tuesday, 10th June 2014 (by post, by hand or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org). Nominations should state the name and address of the proposer and the person to be nominated, and include a short profile (no more than one side of A4 in 16-point type). The nomination should be signed by the person proposed to indicate his or her willingness to stand (a separate note or confirmatory e-mail will be accepted). Profiles longer than one side of A4 may be returned to the proposer for revision (if time allows) or otherwise will be terminated at the foot of the A4 page.
Only full members of the Society whose 2014 subscriptions have been paid may submit nominations or motions for debate, stand for election or participate in votes. Members unable to attend the meeting in person may nominate a proxy by completing a proxy notice – blank forms will be available from Ashville Lodge, where assistance will be given to complete the forms if required.
