Many thanks to those of you who tuned in to our AGM webcast last night, and in particular those who 'tweeted' their questions :thumbup:

On behalf of Sue and myself, thank you for our re-election as Directors. We're looking forward to the challenge of growing imutual's membership over the coming year - with your help, of course! :)

Wow - 50 members voted.... My 378 shares won't have made much a difference either way :oops:

Pretty unanimous for you Richard.

ENjoyed the experience

If and I stress if someone wanted to stand as a director at future AGMs either as a replacement for an existing director or an additional direct, is there a mechanism in place?

My thought is that as we are a remotely located bunch of owners, it will be difficult to gain or judge support. Would we be able to discuss through say the shareholders forum?

This is a purely hypothetical quaetion to see how it would work - I dont see any need to get rid of anyone (though someone must have done looking at the vote! :D

At some stage though, it woould be nice to have a'user' representative on the board - unpaid of course!

The straight answer is "Yes"; Section 3.11 of the Company's articles state:
3.11 No person other than a Director retiring at the meeting shall, unless recommended by the Directors for election, be eligible for appointment or reappointment as a Director at any general meeting unless not less than seven nor more than 42 days (inclusive of the date on which the notice is given) before the date appointed for the meeting there shall have been lodged at or sent to the Office notice in writing signed by some member (other than the person to be proposed) duly qualified to attend and vote at the meeting for which such notice is given of his intention to propose such person for election stating the particulars which would, if he were so appointed or reappointed, be required to be included in the Company’s Register of Directors, together with notice in writing signed by the person to be proposed of his willingness to be appointed or reappointed
In due course, we may well need to recruit an additional director to help with the strategic development of the company; perhaps someone with significant corporate experience and contacts. But I think that's a bit different from what you have in mind i.e. a "member director"

It would be good to do something like that, to reinforce our 'mutual' model, provided that it has a clear benefit for members. Bearing in mind that we're already quite open and answer questions about the company on these forums. Open to suggestions on how this might work...

I wonder who the unkind member was that voted against Sue being a director? (And why?)
