BMC AGM voting rights

Posted by Nick Colton on 10/05/2018

This article sets out the voting rights for BMC members at AGMs.

All adult members (i.e. 18 years of age and above) of BMC affiliated clubs and individual members (including family members) of the BMC, are all voting members of the BMC, and have exactly the same voting rights under a "one member one vote" system.  These rights are enshrined in the BMC Articles of Association, Article 14.

At the BMC Annual General Meetings (AGMs) ordinary business on the Agenda that needs to be voted on is decided by a show of hands.  Special business on the Agenda is decided by a poll.  This is set out in Article 12.15 of the Articles of Association.

If you are unable to attend you can still cast your vote by appointing a proxy to vote on your behalf; this can be the BMC President (who chairs the AGM) or anyone over 18 years of age who can attend the meeting, in person.
