Severn Valley Railway Guarantee Company AGM Notice
This year, the AGM of the members' company, the Severn Valley Railway Company (or ‘Guarantee’ Company) will take place on Saturday, 8th July at 7.30 pm in Castle Hall, West Castle Street, Bridgnorth.
Nominations from members for directorships are welcomed. Such nominations should be made in writing, duly signed by both the proposer and the nominee. They should be received not more than 56 and not less than 35 days before the AGM. This year, these dates are 13th May and 3rd June respectively.
A nomination should be sent in a secure envelope, clearly marked ‘AGM Nomination’ to the SVR Company Secretary. Currently this is Mr D.L. Mellor, 3 Frederick Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B73 5QW.
It is usual for a brief printed CV of the nominee to be included with the Annual Report and Accounts and AGM Notice. If the nominee requires this, then the nomination and CV is required not less than 42 days before the AGM, i.e. 27th May this year, to enable the Secretary to process it and ensure uniformity within the documents. The CV should not exceed 200 words. Please note that multi-page CVs of the type used for employment applications are not acceptable.
Members are requested not to send in proxy forms for the AGM by recorded delivery or registered post. The Secretary is not always at home to receive them, and faces a time-consuming trip to the sorting office as a result. Definitely a case that ‘best’ is ‘worst’!
