Notice of Elections
There were 4 members of the Board elected at the 2021 AGM. Jane Pike and Terry Hephrun will continue as members of the Board, whilst George Poole was co-opted in the intervening period and will also continue to serve on the Board as Chairman. Andy Tatchell resigned later that year and sadly, Peter Pike passed away in December 2021. Martin Barnes and Nigel Cotterill are the two members of the Board (first elected by the members) who will resign from office. Note that Nigel Cotterill is eligible to stand for re-election should he choose, whereas Martin Barnes has served the maximum number of the years* under the current rules and is therefore not eligible to stand for re-election.
*Should the AGM adopt the new rules to be proposed then this rule would be deleted thereby enabling Board members to serve for longer periods.
Call for Motions
In addition to any resolutions that will be put forward by the Trust Board, members can submit their own motions to the AGM. Such a motion must be submitted to the Trust Chairman by email to email@example.com by Friday 16 June 2023 with the subject ‘AGM MOTION PROPOSAL.’ The full agenda is scheduled to be published by 30 June 2023.
