Minutes of the 2018 AGMare subject to ratification The AGM called for June 26th was non-quorate therefore a special AGM will be reconvened on Wednesday 23rd October at 2 pm, to be held before the Monthly Meeting at St Nicholas Church, Sevenoaks, to ratify the draft Minutes and actions (the draft Minutes will be available at the meeting).
At our last two Annual General Meetings we have failed, by a small margin, to achieve the 10% quorum required by our constitution. We have taken instructions from National Office and have been informed by the Chief Executive that we may reduce the quorum to 5%. The adjourned AGM will therefore include a motion to amend Clause 16 iv of the constitution so as to read 5% instead of 10%. The 2019 AGM Minutes will be reviewed at the next AGM to be held in June 2020. 2019 Trustees Report
