Notice of Annual General Meeting rescheduled to Wednesday 24th June 2020 at 7pm

The Board gives notice that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Mountaineering Ireland has been rescheduled to Wednesday 24th June 2020 at 7pm.

The AGM was to take place on 28th March last but due to Covid-19 restrictions it was adjourned to 10th October next.  However, the Board was advised recently that under Company Law the interval between one AGM and the next cannot exceed 15 months.  As our last AGM took place on 30th March 2019, this year’s AGM must be held on or before 30th June 2020. 

In the light of this advice, the Board has rescheduled the AGM to Wednesday 24th June at 7pm. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, the AGM will be held online via Zoom and Delegates will be required to register in advance.

Clubs with 100 full members or less are entitled to appoint two Delegates. For every 50 full members above 100, a Club may appoint an additional Delegate.  For the remainder of their club membership, one extra delegate, subject to a maximum of 12 Delegates per club and, for Individual / Honorary members, a maximum of 20 Delegates.

Can all club secretaries please confirm the delegates in advance of the AGM (include their name, email address and membership number) to by 5pm on Friday 19th June 2020 and for individual members, please do likewise, as this will help facilities the registration process.

The Agenda of the AGM is as follows:

  1. Adoption of Standing Orders
