The AGM is where members can have a say in the future direction of the trust, all current members can put forward motions to be voted on at the AGM. All motions need to be sent to the Secretary, at the usual address or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The secretary will check that the proposer is a current member and that the motion is not against the constitution or does not ask the society to do something, which is illegal. If the motion is in order it will be added to the AGM agenda to be voted on by the members.
