Annual General Meeting

The AGM will be held on Wednesday 23rd May at 7.30pm at Sullington Parish Hall.  The meeting shall receive the annual report from the Chair and the statement of accounts from the Treasurer.  Votes shall be taken on those trustees seeking re-election and on any members seeking election to the Trustee Committee.

The Society is currently seeking a new chair of its Trustee Committee and would welcome a new trustee onto the committee to take on that role.  Members seeking election to the trustee committee must be nominated by another member and all nominations must be received by the Secretary at least 21 clear days before the AGM.  Please note persons may be disqualified from holding the post of charity trustee for certain reasons.  For guidance on eligibility and what the role entails please check here.

Constitution (Governing Document)

An updated Constitution document was presented to the membership for adoption at the AGM on 24th May 2017.  This updated Constitution had been accepted by the trustees and approved by the Charity Commission and the TCV (The Conservation Volunteers – previously the BTCV).  The membership present at the AGM approved the updated Constitution document.  The new Constitution document can be found here.
