AGM 2019 – Results

It was our 2019 AGM on Tuesday 3rd December at Antenna. The trustees would like to extend a massive thank you to everyone who attended or arranged a proxy vote.

We had a quorum, with 142 members present or registered as proxies, over 20% of the membership.”

It was so fantastic to put faces to names, meet you all in person and gather as community under one roof to celebrate our year together. 2019 has had many highs and some lows for the Nottingham Hackspace so we had a lot of topics to cover. We caught everyone up with the year’s most important news, enacted two changed to the constitution, signed off on the year’s finances and had a good catch up with familiar and new faces alike. A very successful AGM by any measure!

As a thank you to everyone who attended, Nottingham Hackspace challenge coins were issued to attendees. If you weren’t at the AGM, these coins are now available to purchase in the snackspace vending machines. Proxy voters can purchase them at a reduced price by contacting the trustees.
