Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) and Coffee Morning

July 9 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Members are advised that DFHS have called an EGM and are invited to attend Tuesday 9th July 10.30 at Treetops.

It is clear that our membership base is becoming more geographically dispersed and it is not practical for them to attend and vote at our annual AGM.  Sometimes it is not possible for local members to attend on the date of the AGM.  It is important to us that all our members are given the opportunity to have a say in how your Society is run and that you are involved in the democratic process of being able to vote at your AGM.

Therefore we wish to introduce proxy voting, allowing members who are not able to attend the AGM to vote by appointing a proxy to act on their behalf.  This is something which has also been requested by members.   To be able to adopt this, we require a change to our constitution which can only be sanctioned with  the agreement of our members.  A quorum of members is required for this to be a valid meeting.  To allow us to have proxy voting arrangements in place for the 2024 AGM in November, we propose the EGM in July to seek member approval.

The agenda and proposed paperwork can be found in the password protected member area of our website (Society meetings/AGM/2024 EGM).
