Guild AGM 2020

It is now over 6 months since the Guild was forced to cancel the AGM owing to the Coronavirus. Since then ringing has stopped across the world, only beginning to re-emerge in the last few weeks within strict guidelines.

The Trustees of the Guild are very conscious of the legal requirements to hold an AGM to discharge our obligations to the Charity Commission and also to keep our members informed of the performance and plans for the Guild.

It seems it is unlikely the Guild will be able to meet and hold an actual meeting within the next few months. Consequently, It has been decided to hold the AGM by Zoom on Saturday 24th October at 10.30 am.

It is the Guild’s intention to send invitations to all members to attend the AGM through an email inviting them to register to attend the meeting. A code to dial into the Zoom meeting will them be sent to those who register on 23rd October.

Papers for the meeting will be available, on request after 10th October. Members will be asked to submit questions prior to the meeting to ensure the smooth running of the meeting. The minutes of the last meeting held on 19th October 2019 in Allesley can be found on the Guild website.

The Trustees recognise this new method of conducting the AGM may cause concerns for some members but in these exceptional times, we think it is the best way of keeping Guild business operating until we return to some form of normality.

General Secretary.
