SATURDAY 22 JANUARY, 2022
2-5pm, ON ZOOM
Join us at Camcycle’s 2022 AGM for an afternoon of campaigning celebration and inspiration!
We’re delighted to announce that our guest for this year is Adam Tranter: newly-appointed Cycling & Walking Commissioner for the West Midlands, co-host of the Streets Ahead podcast and CEO of communications agency Fusion Media. His Bike Is Best campaign has brought together the cycling industry, major cycling advocacy organisations and local authorities to promote cycling in a positive and inclusive way across the country.
Adam will be inspiring our 2022 campaigning with a talk on Zero Carbon Streets: from the personal to the political. He’ll discuss ways you can take action on climate in the streets near you, from grassroots campaigns like pop-up parklets and school bike buses, to bigger initiatives that grab the media’s attention and influence transport policy.
The AGM will also review our year, look forward to the campaigns ahead, and present Camcycle awards to the amazing people who’ve made a difference in 2021. Everybody is welcome to attend, but registration is essential.
(Camcycle members must register before midnight on Thursday 20 January
if they wish to vote in the elections)
Annual General Meeting 2022: your questions answered
Why is the AGM being held online this year?
The ongoing pandemic means that this is the safest way to hold our meeting. We have made this decision following examination of our constitution and advice from the Charity Commission and will host the event using Zoom.
What’s happening when?
Everyone who has registered for the online event will receive an email before it takes place. Included will be an online link to register attendance and join the Zoom meeting. The meeting will begin at 2pm but you’ll be able to register your attendance and join the meeting from 1.30pm. We begin with an introduction and formal AGM business, followed by a break at 3.30pm. Our guest speaker’s presentation will begin at 3.45pm, followed by a chance for questions, and the Camcycle awards will be presented at 4.45pm.
- The full agenda pack for the 2022 Camcycle AGM will be available soon
- Our 2021 annual review will be available soon
What happens at the formal part of a Camcycle AGM?
The AGM is a chance for members to have their say on the running of our charity, to vote nominated trustees onto our board and to bring motions for discussion. You can find further information about our board of trustees online including how to nominate someone (including yourself).
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 Thursday 16 December.
How does the online voting system work?
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, then 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
We want to ensure all members attending the AGM can vote so if this process does not work for you, please email email@example.com or call 01223 690718.
As with last year, our elections will be conducted using the OpaVote online system. The process is broadly the same as with our previous paper-based ballots, but with an online voting form that you must access using a link sent to you via email. Only Camcycle members who have registered for the AGM can vote. Voting will open on Friday 21 January and close at 5pm on Saturday 22 January, at the end of the AGM.
Is there a motion for discussion this year?
The deadline for suggested motions is 5pm on Thursday 16 December 2021.
