NACFB announces 2020 subscription freeze ahead of hybrid AGM

This year’s Annual General Meeting set to run both in-person and live via webcast

 

 

This year our AGM will be held at 2:00pm until 4:00pm on Thursday 21st November at The Royal Society of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street, London. All NACFB Members are welcome to attend and all full NACFB Members are entitled to vote on the proposed resolutions.

The NACFB chose the Royal Society of Medicine as a location because the facilities available contribute very well to the desire to change the format of the AGM, allowing as it does, more of our membership to engage with the event.

This year, the Association will also be running the meeting as a hybrid event, meaning that it will be streamed live online via webcast. The webcast will allow Members to watch live and submit their votes at the same time as those in the room.

All NACFB Members will soon receive a hard copy of the NACFB Annual Report, Accounts & AGM Agenda 2019. In this document, key members of the Association’s team reflect on a record-breaking and award-winning year.

This document also provides all Members with a formal meeting notification and complete AGM agenda together with an absentee proxy voting form. You will also see that the last year’s accounts and meeting minutes are also provided alongside a review of the first six months of our findsmefinance platform. 

The Association has proposed five resolutions to be voted on at this year’s AGM. These include a freezing of all subscriptions for Members and Patrons for 2020, this is second year in a row without increase. Members will also be asked to approve changes to our Articles of Association to enable both the CEO and MD to have full voting rights on the Board of Directors.

Graham Toy, NACFB CEO, said: “Whilst we want to see as many of you as possible at the venue for this year’s AGM, I also hope that this initiative will enable Members from across the country to feel more included and consulted.”
