For many September through to April is AGM season, where charities bring their members together to sign off and vote on particular issues, usually accounts and the election of trustees. Often referred to as AGM season. 

But only charities that are membership organisations will need to have AGMs. 

Even then it is only necessary to hold an AGM if your organisation is set up formally to have “voting members.” Your charity’s governing document – constitution should tell you this. It should also tell you when in the year to hold the AGM and how much notice you need to give. The notice period is usually three or four weeks. 

Your charity’s members can attend AGMs and other general meetings. The governing document should define who the members are. Sometimes they have to apply to join the charity, or they may qualify for membership automatically because they live in the local area. Read on

Sobus is also offering discounted room hire for your AGM. Please contact
