AGM 2019 – Antenna – Doors 7.30pm Tuesday 3rd December

All members will have had an email about our upcoming Annual General Meeting (if you have not had an email, please check your SPAM or check on the Hackspace Membership System HMS that you have your current email listed for contact purposes).

What is the Annual General Meeting?
I hope that the Annual General Meeting doesn’t sound like something a bit boring that you don’t want to go to where at best there will be some uncomfortable politicking and at worst some fool droning on about something you couldn’t care less about. This year is our 8th AGM (in our 9th year in existence as a community). The purpose of the AGM is to review the year and agree the accounts of the year for submission to HMRC. Also changes to our constitution can be suggested and voted on (with some chaired discussion). These need to be raised a few weeks before the AGM to be on the agenda, the sooner the better. We’ve already had a minor alternative/clarification of wording around trustee term lengths, an issue that was voted in last AGM. That stuff can be pretty dry we know…

The Nottingham Hackspace AGM will be held on Thursday 24 January (TODAY!), starting at 7:30 pm. It will be in the Hackspace Classroom (down in 2.5).

It is extremely important that we reach quorate for this meeting.

Quorate is 130 members.  If you cannot attend, please choose a proxy voter from this pagehttps://wiki.nottinghack.org.uk/wiki/2019-01-24_AGM_Proxy_Votes

It is absolutely vital for the survival of the space that members attend.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you or your proxy at the meeting.

Kind regards,

AGM re-run: Thursday 24th January 2019 @ The Hackspace

Email to all Members from the Trustees

As you may be aware, we were unable to conduct the AGM in November as planned as unfortunately we had insufficient members represented either in person or by proxy to be quorate. Our constitution requires 20% of the membership to be represented at the AGM. As a result of this we need to re-run the meeting.

The date for the Nottingham Hackspace Annual General Meeting (AGM) re-run is Thursday, 24 January 2019. It will be held in the Hackspace Classroom (downstairs). Doors will open at 7.30pm and the meeting will begin promptly at 8:00pm.

If you’re a member of Nottingham Hackspace, you need to attend in person or allocate a proxy to represent you at the meeting. We have a number of special resolutions we need you to vote on.

Proxy Voting

If you can’t make the AGM in person, you can make a proxy vote, whereby another member will attend and submit vote(s) on your behalf. If you’d like to register as a proxy voter, or alternatively if you are able to attend and would like to volunteer as a proxy, please add your name to the wiki list at: https://wiki.nottinghack.org.uk/wiki/2019-01-24_AGM_Proxy_Votes

Quorum

For the AGM to happen we need 130 members represented. This is the required quorum as per our constitution. As per section 1.129 of our Articles of Association, if we do not have a total of 130 members (present and proxy voters) then we will not be able to conduct any business and will have to rearrange the AGM for another time.

Agenda

The agenda for the AGM will be as per the 23 November meeting and is available here: https://wiki.nottinghack.org.uk/wiki/2019-01-24_AGM_Agenda

 

Thank you for being a Hackspace member this past year, and we look forward to seeing you or your proxy at the meeting.

Kind regards,
Nottingham Hackspace Trustees

Trustees’ comment on November 2018 AGM

Comment on the AGM from the Trustees

Unfortunately the recent Nottinghack AGM held at Antenna on 22 November 2018 was still not quorate one hour after the published start time, so we were unable to conduct the business that had been planned. The “state of the union” and finances were still presented, but it was not possible to discuss the special resolutions that had been submitted by various members.

The Trustees are planning to re-run the AGM later in January. Please look out for an email in the next few days and encourage all members you know to attend or allocate a proxy to attend and vote on their behalf.

Regards,

Ian, on behalf of Nottingham Hackspace Trustees

Nottingham Hackspace Annual General Meeting

Nottingham Hackspace’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be on Tuesday, 12th December, from 19:00.

It will again be at Antenna.

This is our yearly meeting, where we discuss the state of the Hackspace over the past year. We will have a full financial report as well as a review of the previous year’s events.

For the AGM to have full effect, we need to have a quorate vote to approve the finances. This will require at least 120 members attending.

If you cannot make the AGM, you can register a proxy vote, where a person attends and submits a vote on your behalf. We will have a list of members who have volunteered to hold proxy votes in a future email to be sent to members. Or, if you know someone who is attending, you can ask them to be your proxy.

Thank you for being a Hackspace member this past year, and we look forward to see you at the AGM!
