Shepherds Friendly Annual General Meeting (AGM)

What is an AGM?

An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the meeting of the members of an organisation. Each year we invite eligible members to our AGM to vote and help shape the future of your Society. Join us this year at the AGM to have your say in how your Society is run.

When is the AGM?

This year our AGM will take place on Tuesday 19th June 2018 at our head office, Haw Bank house in Cheadle.

How can you vote?

You can vote in the AGM by attending and voting in-person on Tuesday 19th April 2018 at 5:30pm. You can find directions to the head office here.

If you cannot attend, you can choose to vote by post, details of which can be found in the packs you should have received.

You also have the option of voting online. Placing your vote online is quick and easy to do using the following steps:

  1. Go to the Shepherds Friendly online AGM voting page. The page can be found here
  2. Enter your unique online voting code
  3. Submit your vote securely on the AGM resolutions listed online

You can cast your vote online until the 12th of June 2018.

We will again donate 25 pence to charity for every vote cast

By voting in the AGM you can help donate to charity. For the past few years we have made a promise to donate 25 pence to our chosen charity Seashell Trust for every vote cast in the AGM, a pledge which raised a total of £268.75 for the charity from last year’s meeting.

To date we have raised £268.75 for Seashell Trust through the AGM

Seashell Trust is a charity based in Cheadle near our Head Office, which is dedicated to providing a creative and happy environment for people with complex learning disabilities including little or no language abilities. To find out more about their work, please follow the link:
