2022 AGM and SGM
The 2022 AGM was held on Wednesday 21 September 2022 in Lauriston Hall, 28 Lauriston Street, EH3 9DJ. The AGM was preceded by a short Special General Meeting (SGM) at the same venue. Both the SGM and the AGM were quorate (i.e. enough members were present or had given a proxy for the meeting to be legally valid).
At the AGM There was no vote for Committee members as there were fewer candidates (five) than vacant places (eight). The 5 candidates who were elected were all re-standing Management Committee members: Lucy Bald, Susan Baxter, Carol Goodwin, Maureen Midgley and Angus McDonald. See the webpage About Us/Management Committee for the full list of current committee members.
If you wish to stand for the Management Committee there will be another opportunity at the 2023 AGM. If you need any advice or further information just ask the Lister Office.
