Ahead of this evening’s online SGM, which starts at 19:30 BST, we spoke to Nick Robertson, who the Dons Trust Board is recommending for election to the PLC in a member vote tonight.
Watch the full interview:
The meeting will take place via Zoom. In order to participate, you will need to register by clicking here.
The meeting will be strictly restricted to Dons Trust members only. We will need to confirm you are a member before approving your registration. You will be notified when your registration has been approved.
You do not have to install Zoom software to take part as you can also connect via your web browser.
On the evening, the Dons Trust Board will present resolutions for the election of directors to AFCW plc and headline the results of the recent volunteer survey, after which there will be an opportunity for Q&A. See the full agenda here.
Resolution 4 is to authorise the Dons Trust Board to cast the Trust’s votes at the next AFCW PLC members meeting in favour of appointing Nick Robertson as a director of the company. Nick will be in attendance to answer your questions.
Voting on resolutions will take place online during the meeting (or by submitting proxies in advance), and we will guide you through that process.
Following learning from previous SGMs we’ve held via Zoom, we will explain the rules for voting at the beginning of the meeting, including the time limit we will set for each vote. We have found that, if you can participate via a computer rather than a mobile phone, the functionality of Zoom works better for voting.
Members who are unable to participate online but wish to vote on the resolutions can send in a proxy (enclosed), which will be counted alongside online votes. Please return this form, to arrive no later than Mid-day on Tuesday 27 April. Forms received after this deadline will not be counted.
As with previous SGMs, we hope to keep the time allocated to formalities as brief as reasonably possible so that we have as much time as possible for answering members’ questions. You will also be able to ask questions live on the night via Zoom’s Q&A function. It will also be possible to ask your question or make a comment verbally by raising your virtual hand during the meeting and you will be invited to unmute and speak by the host.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Wednesday 28 April. In the meantime, links to the relevant papers for the meeting are listed below.
