Early notice of the Everyman AGM
AGM – Wednesday, 21st September, Chapter
What an amazing year 2016 has been. Another fabulous and successful Festival is complete and it’s time to start thinking about another Everyman year.
Our Annual General Meeting is probably the most important Everyman event of the year; so put it in your diary now.
It’s your chance as a member to catch up with what has happened over the last twelve months and there is much to celebrate.
Our AGM will be held on 21st September 2016 at 7.30pm in the Everyman Clubroom at Chapter Arts Centre.We invite nominations for the posts of Chairman, Festival Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary and Board members (up to 11).
We will shortly be posting further information on what these positions involve, and any member of the Board will be happy to talk to you about their work over the past year. Nominations should be sent online to firstname.lastname@example.org or on paper to:
The Secretary-Everyman Theatre Cardiff Ltd,
Chapter Arts Centre
Cardiff CF5 1QE
Nominations should be received by midnight, Tuesday, 30th August and will be posted on the Everyman website 7 days before the AGM.
Feel strongly about something? Why not propose a resolution?
You have a chance to raise issues that you feel strongly about; this may be improving how we do something or raising a new idea or approach. You can do this by putting your proposal into a resolution (you will need to get a seconder) and sending it to our Company Secretary (see details below).
Just for the purists there are two different type of resolutions. Special Resolutions that relate to possible changes to our Memorandum and Articles (needs 75% support to be passed) and Ordinary Resolutions that more or less cover anything else you want to raise ( 50% majority required for approval). Please note the deadlines listed below.
We need you! Stand for the Everyman Board
The AGM is the time and place at which we elect our Board for the coming year. These are the fellow members we trust with “steering the ship” in the right direction.
We are really keen to encourage a wider range of members to put their names forward for consideration. The more representative the Board the better we will understand the needs of all our members and will generate a greater feeling of ownership.
If you are interested in putting your name forward there is an information pack and nomination form and nomination form that will be sent out to you in the next few days as part of your formal notification of the AGM.
This easy to read pack should answer all your questions about applying for, and being, a Board Member. There is no need to panic; you will have until the end of August to submit your name.
Important Deadlines to keep in mind
Special resolutions – Midday Monday, 15th August
Ordinary resolutions – Midnight, Tuesday, 30th August
Nominations for the Board – Midnight, Tuesday, 30th August
Any of the above need to be sent to our Company Secretary Sue Osmolska.
