What is an AGM?

An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is normally held once a year and provides the Trustees with the opportunity to explain their management of the charity to the members. It also provides the members with an opportunity to ask questions before voting on business items on the agenda.

These are the reasons why it’s important for us to make sure we have members engage with our AGM:

  • Transparency and accountability

  • Decision-making

  • Feedback and input

  • Community building

  • Governance and compliance

  • Reaching quorum for the meeting (we have to have a certain % of our members present for the meeting to go ahead)

We are committed to making sure as many members engage with our AGM as possible. Please do let Trustees know if there are barriers or challenges to you attending by emailing trustees@dsmanchester.org.uk.

Also, it is worth nothing that we welcome feedback from our members on everything we currently provide and on anything you would like to see from us – please do email feedback@dsmanchester.org.uk so that your valuable comments don’t get lost in overflowing inboxes.
