Camcycle AGM 2021

Save the date: 2pm, Saturday 23 January 2021

The current pandemic means that the safest way for us to hold Camcycle’s AGM 2021 will be online. We have made this decision following examination of our constitution and advice from the Charity Commission and will host the event using Zoom.

We’re delighted to announce that cycling communications specialist and co-author of Building the Cycling City, Melissa Bruntlett, is the guest speaker at our AGM. Melissa will be talking to us about Spaces to Breathe in the context of a cycling city: what does it mean to have safe space for active travel, clean air and independence for our children? As a Vancouver-based campaigner who now lives in Delft, Melissa has experienced both the Dutch cycling dream and the reality of places working to emulate it.

The AGM will also review our 25th anniversary year and look forward to the campaigns ahead. Everybody is welcome to attend, but registration is essential.

As well as being an opportunity to be inspired, the AGM is a chance for members to have their say on the running of our charity, to vote trustees onto our board and to bring motions for discussion.

To ensure that we have time to prepare for the meeting and share important information with Camcycle members, the deadline for trustee nominations and motions is 5pm on 18 December 2020. This year, we are particularly encouraging nominations from women, young people (over 18), people from BAME backgrounds, parents and those with mobility impairments. We would welcome members with communications, HR, or legal experience to join our board and we are seeking suitably qualified or experienced candidates to fulfil the role of treasurer. You do not need to have campaigning experience but you must be passionate about our cause.

Contact us to arrange a meeting or if you’d like to propose a motion to be put to the AGM. Nomination forms and more information can also be found online.

Members attending the AGM will be able to vote for trustees and on any motions which arise. If you wish to vote, you will need to become a Camcycle member (if you haven’t already). You can do this at camcycle.org.uk/membership

For the online voting system to work, we need to have an email address for each voting individual. This means that if you share membership with others in your household but we only have one individual’s email address for you all, the only that person will be able to vote. You can add another email address, update your records and get in touch with any other queries by emailing us at membership@camcycle.org.uk

We want to ensure that all members attending the AGM can vote so if this process does not work for you, please email contact@camcycle.org.uk or call 01223 690718.
