UPDATE: The AGM has been postponed due to the coronavirus situation. We would like to hold it before the end of September but it is not certain at this stage (mid-June) as to whether this might be possible. We are aware that UK legislation is being processed which would allow for a Virtual AGM, held electronically, but whether we use this possibility has not yet been decided. A decision may not be made until early September. We wish to keep our community safe and strong so this consideration will guide us.
The next AGM will be at xxxx on xxxxxx at xxxxxxx.
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is both an important meeting for all tenants to attend, but also a great social occasion to see neighbours, make new friends and help your Co‑op.
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.
Here you can:
- Hear about the past year and activities at Lister, and our plans for the future.
- Stand for election to the Management Committee (nominations must be received three days beforehand).
- Vote for those standing for the Management Committee.
- Receive the accounts (Financial Statements) and appoint the auditors for next year.
The meetings are usually brief (under 20 minutes long) then there is a wine and cheese social with a range of nibbles, including vegetarian options.
Win some goodies – there is a free raffle for all Lister tenants attending the AGM with prizes drawn on the night.
Please come along to support your Co-op. We have a minimum number of tenants needed to attend to make the AGM valid (quorate) so just by coming along you are helping Lister a lot.
Here are the draft minutes of the AGM held on Tuesday 25 June 2019 (they are not ‘approved’ until the 2020 AGM).
