AGM Results 2020

Well, this year’s Annual General Meeting will certainly go down in the Society’s history books as our most unusual ever.


Normally, it is a highlight of our calendar that we look forward to as a key opportunity to get together with our members and other friends of the Society.


However, the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic forced us to dispense with all that in 2020 and hold our AGM behind closed doors, on 28 April, with just a handful of our team present and our Board ‘attending’ by video link.


Thanks to all our eligible voting members who recognised and respected our decision to hold the event behind closed doors, as well as taking the opportunity to vote online and submit questions to us via email.


Below is a summary of how this year’s voting went, and a transcript of the event proceedings.
