2022 Guild AGM: Last day to RSVP / Vote by Proxy

The Guild’s AGM is set for Tuesday, June 21st from 7 – 8:30 pm BST.

Due to the proposed train strikes on June 21st and the potential disruption to travel into/around London, the Board has decided to host the AGM online via Zoom instead of at Brewhouse & Kitchen, Highbury as planned.

All members of the Guild are welcome to attend and hear from the Guild’s Board on achievements over the past year and plans for the future.  Full members are entitled to vote at the AGM; Associate and Corporate members are welcome to join us, but may not vote.


Confirmation of attendance

To RSVP, email RSVPs must be received by Friday, June 17th. You will be provided with the Zoom link the day before the AGM.

The AGM agenda and papers can be downloaded from the 2022 AGM Event page here.

Papers include:

  • minutes from the 2021 AGM for approval,
  • reports from Directors, including the accounts for the year (up to 31st March 2022),
  • the special resolution proposing changes to the Guild’s Articles of Association,
  • along with the personal profiles of the four candidates standing for election to the Guild Board.


Election of Board directors

The following directors are retiring by rotation: Jacopo Mazzeo, Kate Oppenheim and Neil Walker. Jonny Garrett, as a co-opted director, must also retire. This leaves us with four vacancies on the Board.

The application period to stand for election has now closed.

Jacopo has chosen to step down. We are incredibly grateful to him for his many contributions to the Board over the years.

Kate, Neil and Jonny will be standing for re-election; Joanne Steward is also standing for election. Therefore, we have four nominees and four vacancies.

All nominees will need to be approved by the membership during the AGM.

Voting will take place during the AGM using Zoom’s poll function.

Full members who are unable to join are able to vote via proxy. To request a proxy form, email Completed proxy forms must be received by Friday, June 17th.
