The Annual General Meeting will be held after Church on Sunday 8th March 2020, shortly after the 9.00 O’clock service. The purpose of the AGM is to review the year to 31 December 2019, and to plan for the year 2020.
It is also part of the function of an AGM, to appoint or elect people to vestry, including two church wardens, two synods people, and between 3 and 15 other elected Members of Vestry; the number is determined by the AGM itself.
To be eligible for election, a person must have been a member of the Church for at least 6 months, and must be nominated, seconded, and have given their consent, all in writing. Elections for vestry must be by vote, even where the number of people putting themselves forward for election is less than the maximum number permitted by statute or resolution. This is to ensure that every person on vestry is positively elected onto it.
Please consider putting yourself forward for election onto vestry; forms to record your nomination, seconding and agreeing to stand will be available for the month or so before the AGM.
Even if you cannot stand for vestry on this occasion or at this time, please make every effort to be present. It is hoped that the meeting will last for not more than 1 hour.
