Every tenant (with their name on a tenancy agreement) at Lister is also a member of the Co-operative, which owns and runs Lister. The AGM is the one meeting we ask all tenants to try and attend.
The 2021 AGM has been postponed from late June 2021 due to Covid. The 2021 AGM was held on WEDNESDAY 22 SEPTEMBER 2021 at Lauriston Hall, 28 Lauriston Street, EH3 9DJ – the Jesuit Church community halls, at 7.30pm. There was a Special General Meeting (SGM) as well immediately following the AGM. More details below:

The SGM will start immediately after the end of the AGM, please come to the AGM first and stay on briefly. Here is the agenda for the meeting. The sole item on the agenda is the proposed new Rules (constitution) of the co-op. Lister SGM 2021 Agenda
The Management Committee of the co-op recommends these new Rules to the membership. There are only a few changes overall, but they will enable us to deal with any future Covid situation as they would allow us to hold an online AGM in the future. Here is a summary of the Rule changes. Lister SGM 2021 summary rule changes
Here are our current rules which were approved in 2014 by a SGM then. Lister Rules 2014
Changes to our rules need to be approved by three-quarters of those attending and voting at a SGM.

If anyone has any query wish any detail of the proposed new rules, please contact the Lister office for more information.
If any tenant wishes a printed copy of the proposed new rules, then please contact the Lister office. If approved and then confirmed by the relevant authorities, all tenants (members) will get a copy in due course.
UPDATE: The SGM approved the new Rules unanimously. They will now be processed for final approval by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and introduced once that approval has been granted.
