Our 2024 AGM

The society's 2024 AGM will be held at 11am on 4 July at Friends House, 173 Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ.

This year, we shall again welcome members in person to our Annual General Meeting, while also offering online access to the meeting for those members who would prefer to join us virtually. But we do very much hope that you can come to London to join us.

Arrangements for the AGM

For the 2024 AGM, the following arrangements have been agreed:

Members will be sent (either by email or post, according to their preference) the agenda, minutes, voting form, details of trustees for election and vice-presidents for appointment, and links to the annual report and accounts.

All voting for standard AGM business items will be by proxy, preferably online, ahead of the meeting. This will be by instructing the chairman of the meeting which way to cast your vote. If you wish you can leave the choice to the chairman. The voting form is available online below or, if you prefer, you can download a copy here to fill in. We invite members to vote by the closing date of Wednesday 3 July 2024 at noon. Any non-binding votes can be taken on the day.

To enable informed decisions to be taken, members are invited to send questions about any of the items to be voted on in advance of the AGM. Please ensure that any questions reach us by 20 June 2024 at office1@oss.org.uk.

We shall provide answers by 27 June 2024 which will be posted on this webpage and sent by post to those who request it. This allows time for the answers to be considered before the voting deadline. We shall also invite questions at the meeting.

On the day of the AGM, the tellers will count the votes and the results will be announced at the meeting, by email, and on the website.
