This year’s AGM will be live-streamed via Zoom from 1 Angel Square on Saturday 15 May at 10am. You can register your interest and get the meeting link here. We’ve asked eligible members to vote on everything beforehand, so they can stay safe and watch the event live from the comfort of their own homes. Hopefully you managed to have your say in our elections and motions!

There’ll be a small number of eligible colleague members at 1 Angel Square at the meeting, but this is purely to make sure we meet the governance requirements for the AGM. They’re all local to the area and will be following strict social distancing guidelines. Please don’t turn up on the day. While we’d love to see you, it’s important that we continue to do our best to take care of our colleagues and members.

If you tune in to watch the meeting live on Saturday, you’ll hear our Co-op CEO Steve Murrells, our Co-op Chair Allan Leighton, our Independent Non-Executive Director Stevie Spring and our Members’ Council President Nick Crofts talk about:

  • Our 2020 performance
  • The incredible work of our colleagues and members in responding to the coronavirus pandemic
  • Our plans for the remainder of 2021, and 2022
  • The results of our Member Nominated Director election

There’ll also be a live Q&A session where you can put your questions to our board – we’ll do our best to answer as many as we can during the event.

Although we’re going digital once again this year, it’s still set to be a great opportunity for us to connect and look back at the amazing work of our colleagues and members. So please join us live on Zoom on Saturday 15 May at 10am, if you can.
