Information in the Annual Report will be considered at the AGM, and the Annual Report will be available on the website and sent out to members.
Candidates for Director at Large
Biographies and candidate speeches for members running for Director at Large are available at Candidates.
Since this year’s AGM will be held as a virtual event, there are changes in the elections procedures:
- There will be NO nominations from the floor during the virtual AGM.
- The nomination period was reopened to allow an opportunity for additional nominees.
- Candidates have had the opportunity to pre-record candidate speeches that will be made available to members to view before the AGM.
- Voting for candidates will take place by electronic vote during the AGM, rather than by paper ballot. Information on how to vote will be emailed to members who have registered for the AGM.
