We are updating our previous notice to include the motion to update the articles of association to the agenda.
This is a reminder that the Old Nick Company’s AGM is approaching and due to be held on Sunday the 8th October at 4pm at Old Nick HQ on Letitia Street.
What is an AGM anyway?
An AGM is an Annual General Meeting, and we are required to have one yearly. At the AGM, we see the state the company is in, where it is headed, we vote for the committee to run the company, announcements regarding shows are made, we hear reports and Life Memberships are made. All members and life members are not only welcome to attend, they are encouraged t0 attend! If you’ve been a part of an Old Nick show staged since the beginning of January 2016 you are a current member (and if you’re a life member, chances are you know who you are!)
The 2017 AGM also carries an important function – we’re moving to update the Old Nick articles of association, a document last updated in 1981 and in desperate need of modernisation. This will help Old Nick remain functional well into the 2020s and beyond.
There will be the obligatory barbecue afterwards, where you can mingle with other awesome people – other Old Nickers!
