The Church Society Annual General Meeting 2021
Posted by Marion Mason, 26 Jul 2021
Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of Church Society will be held at King's Park Conference Centre, Northampton on Wednesday 1st September 2021, commencing at 4.30pm.
At this meeting, we elect our honorary officers and Council, hear reports from the Chairman of Council, and Chairman of Finance, and have a chance to discuss issues of importance to us as a Society. If you are a member of Church Society, please come along to exercise your vote and make a contribution.
Please download the official notice of the AGM and the nomination form for those who might wish to stand for election to Council.
We are very keen that our Council should be a good representation of our diverse membership – lay people, as well as clergy, women and men, from different areas of the country, and with different class, educational and ethnic backgrounds. The Council has to consider matters including finance, law, safeguarding, communications, HR and many more, so we need a wide range of experience and expertise. If you would like more information about what being on Council entails, please do contact the office and we will gladly put you in touch with one of our current Council members. Any member of Church Society can stand for election – please don’t wait to be asked!
Our Articles of Association can be viewed here.
The Church Society 2020 accounts can be viewed here. Please note these have not yet been signed by the auditors but are due to be signed very shortly, and the signed accounts will be made available prior to the AGM.
This year, the AGM will be held during the annual Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference (JAEC). Attendees of the AGM are welcome to join us for tea prior to the meeting, and to stay for the panel discussion afterwards. Please note that if you plan to stay for ANY other part of the conference, including lunch or dinner on September 1st, you MUST book with the office at least a week prior to the AGM.
We hope to be able to livestream the AGM this year for those who are unable to attend in person and will send details of how to access that in advance of the meeting. Unlike last year, there is no special legal exemption to allow for online voting at the meeting. If you won’t be there in person but would like to submit a question to the meeting, please email it to the office by Friday August 26th.
