A week until our AGM: agenda, papers and why you should be there…

The BFS Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place next Sunday, 25 June at 2pm, at the Main Hall of the City of Edinburgh Methodist Church, 25 Nicolson Square, Edinburgh EH8 9BX. If you have volunteered at one of our festivals in the last three years, please join us!

Across the meeting we’ll be taking stock of what’s happened across the past year for BFS, and looking ahead to our future – as well as selecting a board of trustees for the year too. Today we circulated the meeting agenda and papers via the Beltane members announcements email list; if you haven’t received them and would like to, please let us know – email chair [at] Beltane [dot] org. You can also read our articles of association and detail on the role of board members here.

If you have any questions, just get in touch – we’re looking forward to seeing you there!

Still time to appoint a proxy to vote if you can’t make it​

The only item for voting at the AGM will be the selection of new trustees (application forms from each have been circulated via the announcements list). If you aren’t able to attend, you can appoint a proxy (someone to vote on your behalf). In order for this to happen, please email chair ​[at] Beltane [dot] org with your name and your proxy’s name before 5:00 pm on Friday 23rd June.
Your voting slip will then be handed to ​your proxy on their arrival. Your proxy can only vote on behalf of one person so please ensure that you don’t ask someone who is already a proxy for someone else. Your proxy cannot be running for election to the Board.


*On venue accessibility:
The Main Hall of the City of Edinburgh Methodist Church has a shallow ramp at the entrance and the interior and toilets are accessible (a wide-door lift operates to the floor with the main hall). Limited parking for Blue Badge holders is available outside the venue by prior arrangement with the church, and several Lothian buses stop immediately outside the venue entrance.
