We have been busy during the last year working together to meet the numerous challenges due to the global crisis of COVD19 by supporting local campaigns, identifying both the problems and opportunities that COVID19 has presented.
However, none of this has stopped our long term thinking about how the Friends continues to remain relevant to the Hospital and our wider Sherborne Community.
We have been examining how we might best meet those needs and continue to secure a future to achieve our objectives.
With this in mind we are pleased to announce the nomination of two new Trustees, Fiona Hartley and Rebecca Tillin, who will be elected / appointed at the AGM.
Going forward this means a stronger group of Trustees, identifying issues and societal challenges where we feel we can make a difference to create ever more impact. We are actively seeking to bring all parts of our community, as well as all of our assets and resources, together to meet these goals.
At the September meeting of the Friends Executive Committee it was agreed that holding a face to face AGM was not feasible in the current situation with the Covid19 pandemic. However, in order to demonstrate and maintain good governance the trustees decided that this year the AGM would be held virtually.
This will take place on the 16th November 2020, at 6:00pm . It will be conducted via ZOOM and full details and how to access the meeting will be available on the website www.friendsoftheyeatman.org.uk
The agenda and all documents relating to the AGM, including a resolution to amend the constitution and nominations for officers and trustees, will be posted on the site. Should anyone wish to propose a person as an officer and trustees please do so by the 10th November 2020.
It is important that anyone wishing to attend the AGM, or ask questions needs to register online through the Friends website www.friendsoftheyeatman.org.uk and complete the appropriate forms, to ensure we record names and their eligibility to vote.
The election process will be administered and controlled by the Friends of the Yeatman Hospital. If you have any questions about the election or require assistance with the voting process, please contact by email firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to welcoming you to our first “Virtual-AGM”
