Annual General Meeting 2020

 


 

 


Hello

We have to do the AGM differently this year.
 

In an attempt to slow the coronavirus outbreak, the government has banned public meetings of more than two people. They’ve also asked people to only leave the house for essential reasons and introduced strict social distancing.


We need to protect you, our members, and our colleagues but our AGM must also take place.


What we’re going to do is hold an AGM with the minimum number (according to our Rules) of qualifying members of staff present. As key workers, providing essential services, our staff are allowed to do this. We will, of course, do all that’s necessary to protect their health.


The Ricoh Arena, our normal venue, is obviously closed, and so we’ll hold the meeting at our Head Office.


Sadly we don’t want members to attend, as this would break the government’s rules and potentially put lives at risk but we want to make sure that members have the opportunity to participate.


You can do this in three ways.
 

  1. We want you to vote. All votes received by Monday 20 April 2020 will be counted and recorded as normal, and the number of votes received for all resolutions will be published as usual on our website.

  2. You can also email questions to AGM2020@thecoventry.co.uk by 5pm, Monday 20 April 2020.

  3. We will then record a review of our 2019 performance, just as we would normally at the AGM, as well as cover the most commonly asked questions we receive. Though we won’t be able to answer questions individually we will post this recording on our website for members to listen to.


We’re doing it this way because we have to, not because we want to. The Board and I are proud of the Society’s mutual heritage and understand the responsibility to members that this carries. But our priorities are clear.


I hope that members understand the decision we’ve made and agree with it. I look forward to resuming normal service as soon as possible.


 


Gary Hoffman - Chair of the Board

Voting

Why should I vote?

Coventry Building Society was founded in 1884. Since then, we’ve grown to over two million members. But what we do hasn’t changed – our mission remains to put members first in everything we do. And how we do it hasn’t changed - we consistently do the right thing for our members, our communities and our people. It’s how we’ve stayed strong from the start, and how we make sure we can keep serving you, and generations to come.

Who am I voting for?

The Board of Directors is responsible for the overall leadership of the Society, and is accountable to you, our members. You can learn more about each director here.
