EGM VOTING RESULTS
Thank you to all who participated in the General Meeting yesterday, either on the day via the Zoom call, or by registering proxy votes in advance. The fact that over 150 people joined the call, and in total almost 200 votes were cast from the 370 Members eligible to vote, shows the interest in, and passion for, our Club. I'm very pleased that we were able to deliver this in the timescales and difficulties of the current national situation, as it was a significant move in making the Club more representative than it has ever been, and I truly hope that going forward future Boards will take on and develop this in coming years. Specifically, I'd like to offer my personal thanks to Craig Denton who set up and hosted the online meeting, and has assisted me in combining and auditing the two methods of voting used - thank you all for your patience, but this took quite some time to count and recount.
Moving to the results of the General Meeting:-
That the following Directors of the Company are removed pursuant to s.168 of the Companies Act 2006: Paul Regan, Norman Burn, Craig Denton, Bradley Edmonds, Chris Greenhall, Neil Petty and Brian Riddington.
(This was amended to reflect the fact that Bradley Edmonds and Chris Greenhall had resigned from the Board since the requisition was submitted)
For 110 / Against 88 The resolution passed and thus these persons shall resign from the Board forthwith
(although some were immediately re-elected under Resolution 2)
That there shall be considered the appointment of Directors from those whom have indicated their willingness to stand pursuant to Article 6d of the Articles of Association of the Company.
17 eligible candidates had been nominated. Based on the preferences provided, the following 11 were elected:-
3 year term (to 2023 AGM)
2 Year Term (to 2022 AGM)
1 Year (to 2021 AGM)
(plus John WIlson, who's co-option took place after the requisition was submitted, and thus is not impacted by Resolution 1)
That there shall be called an Annual General Meeting as quickly as possible in order that the provisions for retirement under the Articles are invoked
For 88 / Against 104 The Resolution failed and thus the AGM is likely to take place in April as usual
For the avoidance of doubt, I will complete the minutes of the General Meeting for publication and some other administrative tasks as Secretary in the coming days, and will be convening an initial meeting of the new board of Directors next week, at which I will tender my resignation as Secretary to hand over to whomsoever the new Board chooses.
Secretary, Sherburn Aero Club.
