Due to the Coronavirus outbreak the AGM of 2020 was unable to take place and was cancelled. We had consulted with the Charity Commission before making this decision and they advised us that we could continue with the same officers and committee as for 2019-20.
The good news is that now we will able to conduct the 2021 AGM on the 11th March via Zoom. This starts at 19.30 and any member (paid a subscription) who wishes to take part can obtain the details of the zoom meeting from firstname.lastname@example.org from two weeks before the meeting.
During the AGM we will conduct the normal AGM business but also put forward David Latchford for election as President of ADAS. David has been on the ADAS committee since our inception in 1969 and we hope David will continue to provide a guiding hand to the committee for many years to come.
Also we will propose a change to our constitution. Currently it states officers can only remain in office for three years. As anyone who has taken up a role of officer in ADAS knows, it takes some time to get used to the role and then shortly after this, they have to step down. The Charity Commission advises that officers can remain in office for up to nine years, which is what we are proposing in the AGM.
