Shepherds Friendly Annual General Meeting (AGM)


What is an AGM?

An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the meeting of the members of an organisation. Each year we invite members to our AGM to vote and help shape the future of the Society.

When is the AGM?

This year our AGM will take place on Monday 17th June 2019 5:30 pm at our head office, Haw Bank House in Cheadle.

How can you vote?

You can vote in the AGM by attending and voting in-person on Monday 17th June 2019 at 5:30pm. You can find directions to the head office here.
If you cannot attend, you can choose to vote by post, details of which can be found in the packs you should have received.

You also have the option of voting online. Placing your vote online is quick and easy to do using the following steps:

1. Go to the Shepherds Friendly online AGM voting page. The page can be found here
2. Enter you unique online voting code
3. Submit you vote securely on the AGM resolutions listed online

You can cast your vote online until the 12th of June 2019.

We donate 25 pence to charity for every vote cast

By voting in the AGM you have helped donate to a great charity. For the past few years we have made a promise to donate 25 pence to our chosen charity Seashell Trust for every vote cast in the AGM, a pledge which raised a total of £198 for the charity from this year’s meeting.

To date we have raised £466.75 for Seashell Trust through the AGM

Seashell Trust is a charity based in Cheadle near our Head Office, which is dedicated to providing a creative and happy environment for people with complex learning disabilities including little or no language abilities. To find out more about their work, please follow the link:

Is the AGM the only I way I can offer feedback as a member?

The AGM is not the only way you can keep in contact with us. We encourage members to get in touch in a variety of ways, from our Member Services Team via phone or email, regular feedback surveys sent throughout your time as a member, or via our social media channels. We take all feedback seriously and use it to try and improve the service we offer to you.
