Proxy Voting at the Club AGM on 12th June
Further to the notification of the Club AGM on 12th June, I write to advise that the Club Constitution allows for a member to appoint a proxy to vote on their behalf. Below is the process and information required should a club member wish to appoint a proxy.
Proxies may only validly be appointed by a notice in writing (email to the Club Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org) which:
- States the name and address of the member appointing the proxy
- Identifies the person appointed to be that member’s proxy and the general meeting to which that person is appointed.
- Proxy notices may specify how the proxy appointed is to vote (or abstain), either on one or more resolutions. Unless the proxy notice specifies otherwise it will be treated as allowing the person appointed discretion on how to vote.
- A member remains entitled to attend the meeting and vote, even if a proxy notice has previously been sent.
- A proxy notice can be revoked providing it is received in writing by the Club Secretary prior to the start of the meeting.
Members can appoint any voting member attending the AGM to be their proxy. There is likely to be at least one contested election position and, to aid the vote counting process, I would request that where a member appoints a proxy they avoid nominating any person standing for election.
