The Society’s Articles (13.9) require 14 Members present in person for an Annual General Meeting to be quorate. Despite the expected removal of Government Covid-19 restrictions, there may be many Society members who would not want to attend an in-person Annual General Meeting in November. A hybrid meeting with some Members present and some on-line is difficult to arrange and, after taking legal advice and relying on current Charity Commission guidance for the on-going Covid-19 situation, the trustees have decided to hold the 2021 AGM by video conference.
Nominations for elections should be sent to the Honorary Secretary not less than seven days before the meeting and must be accompanied by a signed statement by the nominee of a willingness to stand for election.
