Voting results at AGM 2024

The 45th Annual General Meeting of EAB was held at St Anne's College, Oxford on May 5, 2024.

As usual, the members voted on the trustee candidates for the following year. Three of the incumbent trustees were stepping down, and were replaced by three new candidates. Clare Hunter, the sole remaining trustee, was the only candidate for president.

A second item was on the ballot: following a decision by the members at AGM 2023, the Constitution was to be changed such that the quorum for AGMs is lowered from 20 members to 5. The trustees had added two small changes, which weren't enough to justify changing the Constitution but had been put to one side awaiting a larger change to accompany. Namely: that the trustees would appoint a secretary from among their number. The role hasn't been required in several years, and so has been fulfilled purely to ensure compliance with the Constitution. Since a point in the Constitution indicated that members seeking an EGM should write to the secretary requesting one, this wording was changed to "president".

The results were:

In recognition of his record-length service, the trustees awarded him a Fellowship, the first since John Wells in 2019.

The proposed revised Constitution was passed, and will now be sent to the Charity Commission for its approval. The 2018 Constitution will remain in effect until such time as the Charity Commission approves the revised one.
