NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the 202nd ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING (AGM) of the Birmingham Law Society will be held at No5 Chambers on Wednesday 28 July 2021 at 4.30pm.
The meeting will be chaired by the President of Birmingham Law Society. In order to comply with current Government guidance on social distancing and in light of the restrictions only due to be lifted on the 19th July, the only members attending in person will be the Officers and the rest of the attendees will be able to join virtually.
Please confirm your attendance here to be able to gain access to the livestream on the day.
The AGM will be held in two parts: the formal business set out below will be transacted on 28th July and the AGM will then be adjourned to the 30 September. Hopefully, the Government’s social distancing requirements will have been sufficiently relaxed by that adjourned date to permit conduct of additional business that would normally be conducted at an AGM.
Any Member who wishes to attend or vote at the AGM on 28th July will only be able to do so by proxy. Please see the enclosed proxy form for details of how to appoint a proxy.
Members are also invited to submit in advance of the meeting any questions that they may wish to raise at the meeting. Please see notes below, for further details.
The following business will be transacted at the first part of the AGM on 28th July:
- To receive the Report of the Society for the year ended 31st December 2020 and the Society’s Accounts for the same period.
- To appoint the Auditors and to fix their remuneration.
- To adjourn the meeting to the 30 September 2021 as may be notified to Members in accordance with the Articles of Association of the Society, noting that, pending conclusion of that adjourned meeting, the current Officers and the ordinary members of Council will remain in their respective posts (subject to any resignations that might be received from ordinary members of Council prior to that adjourned meeting).
Please submit any questions you would like to be considered at the meeting to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on 26 July 2021.
By the order of the Council.
