25 September 2020Orkneycommunities 2020 AGM


Orkneycommunities.co.uk is once again holding an online AGM.

Agenda items are to be notified to enquiries@vaorkney.org.uk by 27th September. Members will have been notified of this by email.

The AGM commences on 28th September to allow discussion to take place on notified agenda items until 4th October 2020, during which time amendments can be notified.

Coinsideration of all agenda items will then take place from 5th October until 11th October 2020.

Please register your acceptance or otherwise of the agenda items present by placing a comment at the item, identifying yourself and your group.

Each Group which is a member of Orkneycommunities.co.uk (i.e. has an orkneycommunities.co.uk website) has one vote, and is strongly encouraged to use it!

Due to the nature of the online AGM there is no AOCB section, and therefore all items for discussion are listed as a separate agenda item.  Members are invited to forward any items they wish to appear on the Agenda prior to the start of the AGM, by 27th September. 

Members are also encouraged to become a member of the orkneycommunities.co.uk Management Committee.  All nominations to Committee are to be received by 27th September 2020, with all member organisations of orkneycommunities.co.uk eligible to nominate a representative to stand for the Management Committee. Please send nominations to enquiries@vaorkney.org.uk
