As you may know we normally hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) each year in May or June. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet up, have a glass of wine and to celebrate the previous year’s achievements.
This year is a bit different. An AGM will still be held but this time online on Thursday 18 June.
As well as an excuse to get together, it holds a very important legal significance as well. We must hold an AGM to vote for our trustees, to accept our accounts and on occasion vote for changes to our constitution.
Some things have not changed. We will still be coming together to celebrate last year's achievements and reflecting on what we are currently doing.
We are asking our members to vote for some changes.
To help us in the future the trustees are recommending that we change some elements of our constitution. As well as bringing our constitution up to date, it will allow us to hold AGMs online or virtually (and further to dispense with the obligation to hold AGMs altogether if it is not practical to do so). It will also dispense with the obligation that all trustees retire at an AGM and then seek re-election. We certainly do not wish to become less transparent about the Centre but to adapt as situations arise.

We really hope you can join us
