AGM 2013 Resolutions & Nominations Notice
The 2013 BMC AGM is taking place on Saturday 27 April at Plas y Brenin, North Wales.
If you wish to submit a resolution for the AGM agenda, it must be submitted to the CEO in writing not less than 45 clear days before the date of the meeting and shall be signed by no fewer than 25 voting members as proposers of the resolution. Failure to comply with these requirements shall render the resolution invalid.
If you wish to nominate a candidate for election to the office of President, Vice-President or Treasurer, it must be delivered to the CEO not less than 45 clear days before the date of the AGM and shall be signed by 2 voting members of the BMC. Failure to comply with these requirements shall render the nomination invalid.
The closing date for any resolutions or nominations is 11 March 2013.
Make your vote count.
We know that the majority of members don’t attend the AGM, but we would still like to encourage you to vote, which can be done by proxy.
A Proxy Voting form is included with the mailing of the Spring issue of Summit, which is distributed to all BMC members.
Richard Wheeldon will be The Climbers' Club representative at the BMC AGM. If you wish to cast a proxy vote then you could nominate Richard as he will represent the interests of the Club.
Proxy voting allows another member of the BMC to vote on your behalf at the AGM. You may appoint your Nominated Proxy or nominate the Chair to vote on your behalf. You can indicate on the form the direction of your vote on any of the agenda items; if you do not stipulate the direction of your vote, your Nominated Proxy can use your vote as they see fit.
If you have declined to receive Summit, or if your household includes more than one eligible voting member but receives only one copy of Summit, you can download additional copies from the BMC website. Alternatively, contact the BMC office and we will post additional copies of the form to you.
Proxy voting forms must be received by the CEO by 5.00pm on Thursday 25 April 2013, 48 hours prior to the AGM.
