Members voted at last year’s AGM to allow Proxy Voting. Proxy voting means that members in good standing who are not able to attend the AGM can assign their vote to another member in good standing. As the member attending checks in to the AGM, they declare that they are carrying the proxy for another member. The secretary finds both names on the membership list and, by writing the name of the member who is not attending next to the member who is attending, the proxy has been assigned. Each member gets a voting card. In the case of proxy voting, members would receive their voting card and the card(s) for the member(s) for whom they carry the proxy.
