Topics for discussion at the AGM
The Board of UNA-UK has agreed that all paid-up and honorary members of UNA-UK should be given an opportunity to propose topics for discussion at the AGM. The topics for discussion must focus on general management and governance and cannot be policy proposals. Each submission must be supported by six members, one of whom should attend the AGM. The deadline for submission was Monday 15 February, 4pm.
Paid-up and honorary members are free to raise issues at the meeting but prior notification through this process will enable the allocation of sufficient time for discussion.
Distinguished Service Awards
As in previous years, the 2016 Distinguished Service Awards will be presented at the AGM.
The committees of all UNA Nations, Regions and Youth are invited to make nominations for these awards, which must include a citation of no more than 300 words stating why the person has been nominated, and must be signed by two officers of the regional, national or youth committee in question. If there is no regional committee in your area, two branch officers should sign the citation.
The UNA-UK Board and Executive are delighted when awardees are able to attend the AGM to receive their awards in person and we encourage committees to extend an invitation to their nominees.
