Annual General Meeting
This year saw a record turnout of over 750 members to our AGM, which was hosted in a new location at the Chateau Impney in Droitwich Spa to accommodate the growing number of members attending. Members were given the chance to learn more about the Society, get involved in debate, hear how the Society has been performing and put questions to our Board of Directors and Executive team.
In our Giving Something Back marquee we had our local community groups and a number of our local suppliers there to welcome members to the AGM, providing tastings of their produce. The morning began with the chance to ask questions about co-operative governance, and sessions on our Co-operative Energy & Healthcare businesses. Members also had the opportunity to find out more about what we’re doing to support and develop young people in our business and communities. Then it was in to the official AGM where Chief Executive Ben Reid gave a round-up of the end of year trading results and members had the chance to ask questions about the Society and our future.
