Annual General Meetings (AGMs)

2023 Metfriendly AGM

The 2023 AGM took place at Metfriendly’s offices at Central Court, Orpington, on Wednesday, 5th July, to satisfy our regulatory requirements as laid out in the Society’s Rules. As well as participating in the regulatory process of the AGM, Members took the opportunity to ask questions and chat with the Metfriendly team whilst they were with us.

The Metfriendly 2023 AGM attracted 2,023 votes, and all resolutions were carried. These covered the acceptance of the 2022 AGM Minutes, Annual Report and Accounts, Auditor’s Report, Remuneration Report and the re-appointment of Mazars as the Society’s auditors. You can view all the documents referred to in the AGM in the Related Documents section on this page.

One new Board Member was elected, and ten Board Members were re-elected. Details of the new Board can be viewed here.

Our Chair (from January 2023), Graeme McAusland, highlighted how the Society is working to serve our Members better and make us as easy as possible to interact with; this includes engaging with the underlying philosophy behind the FCA’s Consumer Duty requirements, appropriate training, investment in our systems and engaging with Members whenever we can through our involvement at Police events, our Family Finance surveys and ride-alongs.   

Our CEO, Annette Petchey, summarised the performance of the Society in 2022, which was another strong year for sales at Metfriendly despite the cost-of-living crisis, and was the second biggest year for premium income in our 130-year history. Annette explained how Market Value Reductions (MVRs) ensure fairness for our Members, and she outlined areas of focus for the Society in 2023. Further details can be found in the 2023 AGM Minutes.
