SNU AGM UPDATE - Change of arrangements > AGM now online only.

After considering the safety of members attending the AGM, we have made the decision to move the meeting from the Barbanell Centre, Stafford to being an online-only meeting. We understand that our AGM is an important part of the year, and this decision has not been taken lightly.

We are currently working hard to put everything in place to ensure that all the necessary democratic mechanisms are put in place, and investigating the most accessible and efficient voting platforms to use. This is a significant undertaking, but we are confident that the meeting will still run to the highest standards to ensure maximum accessibility and participation.

Information about these new arrangements will be released as soon as they have been finalised, and we thank our members, churches, centres and DCs for their understanding of this decision to safeguard the well being of everyone involved.

In his latest blog, Minister David Bruton, SNU President said,

After a lengthy discussion concerning the logistics of holding a physical meeting safely the NEC has agreed to hold the meeting due to take place on Saturday 17th October virtually; we are currently working to identify the best way to achieve this and source suitable software to facilitate the necessary voting at the meeting. Further information will be available shortly and whilst the NEC regrets not to be able to hold our meeting physically our paramount concern needs to be the safety of the membership and our staff. The motions which will be placed before the meeting will be circulated to Churches and Districts with the August voting circulation.
