Details of Nottinghamshire WIldlife Trust’s 54th AGM

Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust will hold its 54th AGM on Saturday November 18th at The Pearson Centre, Beeston. Nottingham. Attendance at the AGM is free but to help us with arrangements it would be helpful if members could call 0115 958 8242 or email (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to register.

The AGM will be followed by a 'An Evening with Hugh Warwick'. Hugh, an engaging speaker, is a hedgehog expert and nature writer who regularly contributes to the Guardian. He is author of ‘A Prickly Affair’ and Linescapes. His talk is entitled ‘Hedgehogs in the Linescape’.The AGM will be followed by a 'An Evening with Hugh Warwick' - Tickets for this event can be purchased here.

As our AGM needs to be late in the year this often limits our ability to showcase the exciting work we are doing on our nature reserves, as a result our AGM will now take a slightly different format and be followed by an evening talk. Alongside this change we plan to introduce a new summer Members’ Day in 2018.

10.  To elect Tim Farr as a Trustee

11.  Resolution – proposed change of term of office for Council members.

Within The Articles of Association of The Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust Limited, item 13.3 states “A retiring Council member shall be eligible for re-election, but no member shall be elected for more than three terms”.  This item limits the tenure of Council members to 9 years.  However there is a need to ensure that if a Trustee is elected to be an Officer of the Trust (that includes Chair/Vice Chair/Secretary/Treasurer) the tenure might need to be extended to enable a suitable term of office.

It is therefore PROPOSED to amend 13.3 to “ A retiring Council member shall be eligible for re-election, but no member shall be elected for more than three terms, unless that member is holding an Office of the Trust,in which case they may be elected for an extended period as agreed by Council.”

12.  Any other competent business of which notice has been given not less than seven days prior to the meeting.

6.00pm Awards - Treswell Award for Longstanding Volunteering / John Walker Volunteer Award.

6.15pm Close. Opportunity to meet staff and trustees (tea and coffee available) and visit our ‘pop up’ shop.

Our ‘Evening with Hugh Warwick’ will begin at 7.30pm (Doors open 6.30pm) but members attending the AGM will have an opportunity to meet Hugh ahead of the lecture.
