Frequently asked questions
Why is the AGM online?
The AGM is a large scale event that must be planned well in advance. Due to the restrictions currently in place for larger gatherings, it has been decided that the safest option will be to hold a hybrid AGM, a small physical meeting linked with online facilities.
What do I need to access the AGM?
You'll need a device with internet access, such as a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
If you're unable to attend the online AGM you can cast your vote online, request a postal vote or appoint a proxy before the meeting. This has previously been the case for members who are unable to attend the AGM due to geographical restraints.
What do I do if I have difficulty logging on?
Our helpful staff will be on hand on the day to assist our members by phone. We will provide you with the details of this hotline ahead of the meeting.
What happens if the AGM is interrupted by technical difficulties?
In the event that technical difficulties occur during the meeting and a quorum ceases to be present, the AGM will be adjourned. However, if a quorum remains physically present, then, depending on the circumstances, the Chair may decide whether to continue or to adjourn the meeting.
Attendees will be notified of any technical difficulties via the online streaming platform.
