We are writing to inform you of two upcoming events for your calendar on the 4th October 2018 which we hope you will be able to attend.
Between 4:00pm-7:00pm in the Strathdearn Village Hall there will be an informal drop-in Community Engagement event which will focus on the latest developments of the new Community Hub to allow you to study the visuals and plans of the completed project and see where we are in the timeline to commencing work. Our build team, Compass Building and Construction Services Ltd and Torrance Partnership, will be in attendance along with members of the Board to answer any of your questions and give you an update on the project. It would be great to see you there and to get feedback for this exciting venture.
Straight after this event the Strathdearn Community Developments AGM will be held from 7:00pm. We will be giving you an update on a number of projects and what the company has been doing in the last year with the main focus of the evening being on the new community hall. We also intend to deal with a variety of governance matters requiring your involvement and the meeting will conclude with a Q and A session. Business will include:
- the appointment of up to four elected directors. Three existing directors will be standing down with two putting themselves forward for re-election but any ordinary member can be nominated to stand by two other ordinary members. Should the number of valid nominations exceed the number of positions available, the candidates will be chosen by ballot on the evening. The nomination forms are available on request to this email and completed forms can be returned by email or posted to the Strathdearn Village Hall. The final date they must be received by is 27 September.
- seeking approval for the final accounts for Strathdearn Community Developments for years 2017-18. An overview of the financial activities for both the charity and the trading company in the year will also be presented at the meeting.
- approving the minutes from the previous AGM.
Due to the one year expiry date on proxy voting forms, any ordinary member wishing to vote in the event of a ballot but who are unable to attend the meeting would need to submit a new proxy voting form which can be obtained from the Company Secretary for return by 2 October 2018. We will inform you before the AGM in the event that a ballot is required in order to allow you to submit a proxy form in advance of the meeting.
Links for many of these documents are provided below.
We look forward to seeing you on the 4th.
