Voting in our AGM is open, and all eligible members should have had packs in the post or on email by now. If you haven’t had yours, you’ll need to call 0800 023 4708.
As a member owned business, our AGM and elections give you a chance to get involved in our democracy. You can vote on our Member Nominated Directors, Council members, and motions – important things like what we campaign on, and how we work (last year these were around Fairtrade, modern slavery and packaging recyclability).
In this short video, our colleagues Yasmin and Matthew explain how you can use your vote to shape our business:
How to vote:
All voting packs must arrive back by midday, 14 May.
If you’re coming to the AGM:
You can vote on the motions in the room, but you’ll need to vote for your Member Nominated Directors and Council representatives in advance either online or in the post depending on your pack preferences (just make sure you tell us you’re ‘attending’ when you complete your form).
If you’re not coming to the AGM:
If you’re not coming, you can still vote online or by post, depending on your pack preferences. You’ll need to select ‘I am unable to attend the AGM and wish to appoint a voting representative’ if you’re voting online – or complete Section 2 on the paper voting form. This person (normally the Chair) then places your vote on the day. You’ll then be able to vote for your Member Nominated Directors and Council representatives
