Notification of Mountaineering Scotland Annual General meeting (AGM) and Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM)

4.30pm, Sat 21 November 2020

The board of Mountaineering Scotland invite you to attend the 2020 AGM and EGM to be held at 4:30pm on Saturday 21 November. 

Due to the current situation in relation to COVID – 19, and the ongoing uncertainty regarding national and local restrictions, the decision has been taken to hold the meeting online using Zoom (see below for how to register). This will require members to have access to a computer or mobile device with access to the internet via a web browser, but there is no requirement to download any software to take part.

Members are asked to approve the financial statements (pdf) and four appointments to the board: 

  • Election of Director for Snowsports Touring
  • Election of Director of Finance & Treasurer
  • Election of Director Landscape and Planning
  • Election of Director for Governance, HR & Equalities

Find out more about the new candidates for the board - click here.

Following the review and approval of the new articles of association at last year’s EGM and in response to a matter raised by the Cairngorm Club the board are proposing two amendments to the articles to reinstate the ability for Honorary members of the organisation to speak and vote at general meetings of the company. These require amendments to sections 3.5.2 and 6.10.3 as detailed in the notice and voting forms. 

Members are asked to vote in support of these amendments.

Please use the link below to register your attendance at the AGM – you will need your membership number to complete the registration form.

Need your membership number? Email info@mountaineering.scot with your name and address and we'll be able to provide you with this.

Details of how to vote at the AGM and EGM can be found here.

Due to the complexity of club votes, this year we are asking clubs to submit votes in advance of the AGM using the proxy voting forms on our website. To assist clubs with their vote, we will be in touch next week to advise you of the number of votes allocated.

Please ensure that proxy forms reach us by email or post by 4pm Friday 13th November.

To ensure that an opportunity is provided for members to ask questions which relate to the business covered in the agenda and to assist in the smooth running of the meeting we would ask that any questions are submitted in advance to the company secretary by emailing stuart@mountaineering.scot by 4pm on Friday 13 November 2020.

On behalf of the board and team at Mountaineering Scotland we hope you are able to join us at the 2020 AGM and EGM and we look forward to seeing you there. 

Stuart Younie

Company Secretary
