AGM 2020 – What you’re voting for

This article explains Proxy Voting, answers some common questions and provides more detailed profiles of the Trustees.

Proxy voting

Every member is being asked to vote by completing a proxy form this year. This is so that we can hold the AGM effectively via audio/video conference and members can nominate a representative to attend. We are encouraging members to get together and share a proxy or choose a trustee to act as their proxy, this will make the audio/video conference run more smoothly. Trustees that have already agreed to be proxies are included in the form so you can just select their name without having to contact them.

The Proxy Voting system allows members to instruct a Proxy on how to vote or allow them to vote freely. The form can be found here

This is what you are being asked to vote on:

Change to the rules – specifically that the President is appointed by the Board of Trustees and that his role, being honorary, has no entitlements or rights. This change has been requested by the majority of the Trustees and aligns the rules with the constitution which has already been approved.

Appointment of Trustees – please review their personal profiles below or view a summary in the CIO Agenda
