As communicated to you, the Annual General Meeting (AGM) shall be held on Friday 24th February 2017. At 5.45p.m. The undersigned has received two student nominations in total for election on the executive council. The number of vacancies for student members is that of one and hence an election needs to be held as detailed in the statute of the Chamber of Engineers. At a meeting held on the 24th January 2017, the council agreed to provide student members with the possibility of voting by post.
Short biographies of the nominees can be viewed here. You are kindly invited to vote either by post or during the AGM itself. A postal voting document is also in the post together with the short bios, election procedures and guidelines, a voting document specimen, a self addressed and prepaid envelope and the numbered ballot envelope with a covering letter. This is for those who have already paid their 2017 membership fee and any arrears.
Those who have not yet paid their 2017 membership fee or any arrears the bios only are included with the covering letter. Those members who did not yet pay their fee can still attend the AGM and vote, provided they renew their membership at the door.
Voting documents that are submitted by post must reach PO Box 02 Zabbar by latest noon of Tuesday 21st February 2017. The paid up members who intend to come to the 24th February AGM and wish to vote at the AGM rather then sending the voting document by post, are reminded to get the voting document and ballot envelope with them on the 24th February. All voting documents will be placed in a sealed box and opened only during the AGM at the counting stage of the election.
Despite of the possibility for students to vote by post, members are still strongly encouraged to participate in the AGM. Much is being discussed and actioned during these crucial times for our profession and your involvement and support is highly appreciated. We cordially remind you of the following AGM agenda:
1. Reading and approval of minutes
2. Matters arising
4. President’s address
5. Treasurer’s report
6. Motions and amendments to the Statute
7. Election of Auditors
8. Other matters
9. Election of Council Members (Opening of Voting Session)
