Community Energy England (CEE) Announce AGM and First Executive Appointment


SusCha joined Community Energy England in May 2014. CEE are holding their AGM on Thursday 4th September and have posted the following:

The meeting takes place in Oxford Town Hall at 5pm on Thursday 4th September, directly after the OxFutures/DECC conference and before the community energy awards. We hope that you and others from Charlbury will be able to attend. Even if you can’t make it, you can participate in the AGM; either by nominating a proxy or by voting online beforehand.
The main business of this inaugural AGM is to elect a new board of directors. We are spoilt for choice with a good number of excellent candidates. The list of candidates with a summary for each is available on our website here. Each will also be given a brief opportunity to introduce themselves at the AGM. While the votes are being counted, we will update you on our progress and Kathy Smyth will launch the short manifesto we are using to promote new policies in the lead-up to the forthcoming general election.
Each CEE member is entitled to vote for up to nine candidates and we will leave it to you to consult your colleagues on how you wish your votes to be cast. The outcome will be the election of nine directors, which must include no less than five representatives of community members and no less than one from the private sector. This is in accordance with the Bye-laws, and the election will follow the process in Annex C thereof.
Whether you wish to attend in person, appoint a proxy or vote online; please register here. You will need your membership number which is CEM061. If you are voting online or appointing a proxy, it will also be easier if you read in advance the candidate resumes and decide who to vote for.
We are not forwarding all these details to other contacts within Charlbury because each member organisation can only vote once, but we are reminding them about the AGM date in case they want to attend in person. The final agenda will be sent to all those registered to attend, and will be available on the day.
We look forward to seeing as many members as possible on 4th.
Finally, we wanted to confirm that job applications for our first executive appointment are now open. Please let your networks know.
