UPDATE: Click here to see the outcome of the Extraordinary General Meeting.
An Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of UNA-UK will take place at 5pm on Thursday 28 April 2016 at Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA.
All paid-up and honorary members are invited to participate.
EGM: purpose and documentation
At this meeting, members will be asked to vote on a crucial proposal to secure UNA-UK's future. The proposal seeks to amend members' voting rights at Annual General Meetings (AGMs). It emerged from the Board's discussions on a new strategic plan, and is part of a broader agenda to revitalise UNA-UK.
The Board recognises that only a very small number of members take part in AGMs, and that this proposal will therefore not affect most members in any practical way. However, any change to voting rights is an important matter, and we urge all members to take part in this decision, in person or by proxy.
The documentation for the meeting is available here: www.una.org.uk/EGM2016.
It includes a letter from UNA-UK's Trustees explaining the proposal, as well as an online proxy voting form to enable those who cannot attend the meeting to cast their vote.
Please note that the deadline for submitting your proxy form is 4pm on 26 April 2016.
