Thank you to everyone who attended the Midcounties Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 7 May. This year’s AGM again took place at Chateau Impney in Drotwich Spa where over 650 members had the opportunity to learn more about our business and put their questions directly to members of the Executive and the Board of Directors.
Once again, this year’s AGM again gave members the opportunity to comment on and discuss areas surrounding the energy business as well as comment on the Midcounties service and performance as a whole. After the conference introduction, members were given the choice of attending their choice of two out of four forums covering Energy, Food Retail, Co-operative Social Responsibility and Member Engagement. The Energy Forum looked to the future from community based energy projects to smart metering. Our member-customers also had the opportunity to discuss their personal energy accounts with the Co-operative Energy Advisers present on the Energy Help Desk.
Our other forums included the food forum, which concentrated on Fairtrade and included presentations by the Fairtrade Foundation and the CSR forum, which focused on our Regional Community work and exciting new plans to involve members while the engagement forum discussed governance issues and gave people a chance to meet and interact with the Board.
The afternoon session focussed on the adoption of the Annual Report and Accounts and a question and answer session with members of the Board and the Executive. In addition members made their vote count on sections including; the accepting of the proposed rule changes, director’s fees and the distribution of Share of the Profits.
Every year, all of our members are invited to come meet with us, speak with us in person and vote on business decisions, is just one of the many things we do which helps us to stand out as an energy provider.
