Embroiderers' GuildEmbroiderers' Guild AGM 2020 - Postponement

This was scheduled to be held on 25th April 2020. Government policy on social gatherings, distancing and requirement for self-isolation makes it impossible for this event to proceed as planned and notified to members.

AGM 2020 is, therefore, postponed until such time as it is permissible, practical and prudent to reschedule. We have been in touch with members who booked for the day or notified us of their intention to attend the AGM.

The decision to postpone renders it impossible for the proxy voting on the proposed Guild Subscription amount for 2020/21 and the re-appointment of the auditors to go ahead. These motions may need to be reconsidered in the light of the events that led to this postponement. Proxy votes received to date will, therefore, be destroyed.

No questions or notice of additional items of business have been received as at 27th March 2020. Please hold on to any questions you want answered or additional business you may have until you receive notice of the rescheduled meeting.

The intention is that the meeting agenda will remain as published and the rescheduled meeting will be held at the same venue i.e. The Priory Rooms, Birmingham. Please click on this link for this information Embroiderers' Guild AGM 2020

The decision to postpone was taken by the Board of Trustees.
