AGM ATTENDANCE

All members may attend the AGM and are entitled to vote. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year’s meeting will be held via Skype only. Slots are limited to 45 places and must be booked in advance..

If you wish to attend this year’s AGM, please email secretary@csfleak.info as soon as possible, and no later than 7 pm on 17 November 2020, in order to secure a place on the Skype call. Slots will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. Details of how to dial into the meeting will be circulated to those who have booked a slot, however it would help us greatly if you would provide your Skype username/address with your slot request.

You must have a Skype account and up-to-date Skype software in order to attend online. The Skype call will start no later than 6.55pm on the day of the meeting to ensure all members are dialled in. Regrettably, any member not online by 7pm will be deemed not to have attended.

For members who are unable to attend in person, proxy voting is also available. This must be arranged in advance. Members wishing to use a proxy vote must complete the official proxy vote form in full and return it to us no later than 48 hours before the meeting starts. You can vote on specific resolutions listed in the agenda and note that on the form or ask the chair to vote as they deem appropriate on your behalf.

BECOMING A TRUSTEE

Being a Trustee is fun, rewarding and enables you to give something back. We’ve achieved a lot since we were set up in 2015/16 and look forward to doing much more. We recognise that the prospect of being a Trustee may seem daunting, however being a Trustee with us will allow you to give what you can without any requirement for more. All of our Trustees are either CSF Leakers themselves or carers. We know the challenges this involves and therefore volunteering with us fits around that.

We meet through Skype once a month/six weekly for two hours and whilst regular attendance is encourages we also recognise that health or other commitments have to come first. Most Trustees put in about 4-6 hours in total per month, but this can vary depending on people’s needs. We also like to work to people’s strengths so would be keen to hear what makes you tick and what you enjoy doing. Volunteering should be fun not onerous.

If you’d be interested in joining us, feel free to email us at volunteer@csfleak.info for more information on what being a Trustee involves.
