Previous Annual General Meetings

The AGM is arranged to conduct the formal business of receiving the annual report and accounts and electing the Executive Committee, it is also an opportunity for members to ask questions and raise issues about the Society and its activities.


The Norwich Society's AGM took place on Wednesday September 22nd from 7pm at The Forum, Norwich.

As the event itself was socially distanced with a limited capacity, a postal vote system was implemented to ensure everyone could take part. Members received a voting ballot paper as well as other documentation in the post. The Officers were all re-elected, while Peter Threadkell, John Howkins and Michael Jordan joined as Trustees - the full list of those currently in the Executive Committee can be found here.


The Norwich Society's 2020 Annual General Meeting was postponed due to the coronavirus.

Although the year's Annual General Meeting (AGM) was put on hold, as the Society's constitution restricts the length of time a member can hold office, it was therefore necessary to make new officer appointments to the Executive Committee. These will be submitted for formal approval at the rescheduled AGM.


In the 2019 AGM, members were asked to vote on a change to the Society's constitution. The resolution to move to Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) status was passed and if approved by the Charity Commission will take force at the 2020 AGM.

Paul Burall was elected as Chair of the Executive Committee, Barry Howell as Vice Chair, David Taylor as Secretary and Simeon Jackson as Officer.
