Annual General Meeting 2020

agm 2019

This year, the date of our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is Monday 27 April 2020. The COVID-19 outbreak is a fast-moving situation and we’re keeping a very close eye on Government advice. As a mutual we must by law hold an AGM each year within a specified time period and we’re looking into how we can achieve this in light of the COVID-19 emergency and Government guidance. We’ll update this page with any developments.

Your vote matters - how to vote

Your vote is vital in running the Society, so don't miss the opportunity to have your say. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we’d encourage all members to vote online if they can.

Otherwise, you can still post your voting form if it’s safe for you to do so whilst still observing the current guidelines. Please note that this year we will not be operating ballot boxes in any of our branches. We understand that some members may not have access to the internet, or be physically able to get to a post box due to the current restrictions. Unfortunately, there is no other alternative method of voting in this unprecedented situation.

Voting will remain open until 5pm on Tuesday 21 April and all votes received by that time will be counted.

Vote Online

If you’ve registered for your AGM information by email, we’ll send you a link directly to the voting site.

You can also vote online using the voting codes printed on your form you will have received in the post.
