The 2021 AGM took place at The Warren, Hayes on Wednesday 7th July 2021, to satisfy our regulatory requirements as laid out in The Society’s Rules.
Due to ongoing restrictions and uncertainties, Members were encouraged to vote online/by post rather than attend in person. Some Members joined us via Microsoft Teams.
The Metfriendly 2021 AGM attracted over 1,700 votes and all resolutions were carried. These covered the acceptance of the 2019 AGM Minutes, Report & Account, Auditor’s Report and Remuneration Report, the re-appointment of Mazars as the Society’s auditors as well as Resolutions concerning proposed revisions to the Society’s Resolutions and Memorandum. Further information about this is below. Two Non-Executive Directors were elected, and seven re-elected to the Board. The full results of the AGM can be viewed here.
Changes to the Society’s Rules and Memorandum
We have taken the opportunity to update some of the language used and allow us to have virtual or hybrid AGMs in the future should we have need, in light of any event such as the Covid-19 pandemic. We have also taken the opportunity to formalise the Police Forces we can deal with. This will cater for career moves between forces for our existing Members and allows us to increase the membership of our Society. These changes were approved by Members voting in the 2021 AGM.
National Police Memorial Fund Donation
As promised, we will be donating £1 for every Member who voted online, which totals £1,310, to the National Police Memorial Day fund. For the latest information regarding the Memorial Day on 26th September, please visit nationalpolicememorialday.org
