AGM Voting

Voting was conducted in advance of the AGM


  • The voting regulations are laid out in full in the Memorandum and Articles of Association.
  • Only fully paid-up members of the Trust are entitled to vote on the resolutions that will be passed at the AGM (Article 16).
  • Any organisation that is a member of the Charity may nominate a person to act as their representative at the meeting and will be entitled to one vote (Article 18).
  • Please email admin@bumblebeeconservation.org for more details or call 01786 594 133.


Voting will be conducted in advance of the AGM in order for all votes to be verified as correct. This is known as a proxy vote, which means you do not have to attend the AGM to vote.  There will be no votes cast on the day of the AGM – the proxy form will direct the Chair how to vote on your behalf against each resolution.

Voting took place between 12:00 Monday 10th September 2018 until 17:00 Wednesday 10th October 2018 and is now closed.

The results of the proxy votes were declared during the AGM and recorded in the Minutes, and included the total number of votes cast for or against the resolutions as well as the number of abstaining votes.  The results will also indicate whether a resolution has been carried or not.

Comments are closed.
