AGM report – October 22nd 2020

Chorlton CLT’s first Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on the evening of Thursday 22nd October 2020. The meeting was held virtually, broadcast via Zoom from Stretford Public Hall. In total we had over 60 members attend, representing almost 20% of our total membership of 318.

We were delighted to open the AGM with a presentation by Claire Stocks from the Climate Change Action Partnership who presented on the new Big Lottery funded initiative. Her presentation can be found below.

Following Claire’s presentation, our Chair Steve Goslyn took us through the main matters of business including the presentation of the Annual Report and the Annual Accounts – both accepted by a majority of members present.

The results of Board election were also announced as voting for the election had taken place online prior to the AGM. Our successful candidates were congratulated and welcomed: Carl Emery, Pam Barnes, Zainab Suleman, Rowena Salmon, and Joseph Breen.

Following the election results, we had one resolution to consider – to dis-apply the requirements to appoint an auditor in line with the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014. This was moved by our Treasurer Charles Ward and seconded by Vice Chair Margaret Manning. The resolution was approved by over 80% of members present at the AGM voting in favour.

The final part of the meeting concentrated on updates of our key projects The Picture House (Co-op funeralcare) and Ryebank Fields. Following these updates, we ended with a Question and Answer session.
