852AGM 2020 - Options were discussed regarding AGM. It is not possible to hold the AGM as planned this year as the Winton has been cancelled and it was decided (5 for and 1 abstain) to not hold a Zoom AGM, but to wait for the time being until the COVID-19 situation is such that an AGM can be held. (This can be reviewed in the next few months.) It was agreed that 'AGM documents' will be sent out to membership by the end of September - Chairman's report, Accounts etc. There is no provision in the Constitution for elections to take place other than at an AGM, and it was felt that membership will support this.
