Voting rights and procedures
Each member shall have only one vote on each question irrespective of his or her shareholding in the credit union. Under our current rules, members under 16 years of age are not eligible to vote. Votes at the meeting will be by show of hands, unless a secret ballot is demanded by the Committee or by 10 members present at the meeting. All resolutions shall be carried by a simple majority with the exception of rule amendments. These must be carried by a two thirds majority of votes cast. Where the votes are equal the Chair has an additional or ‘casting’ vote. The Chair presides over the meeting and if not present the Vice Chair will do so. If the Vice Chair is also not present within 15 minutes of the commencement of the meeting the Committee will choose one of the Directors to do so.
Due to the geographical spread of the credit union membership, the rules allow proxy voting to ensure all members of the credit union can take part in the election of Directors and the decisions on resolutions included on the agenda of the meeting.
If you are unable to attend the annual general meeting, you may vote by proxy. All members are entitled to cast one vote per question. Voting forms with instructions for completion and return are attached.
NB: Proxy forms must be received by the Secretary by noon on 19 March 2018. Forms received after this date and time will be deemed ‘spoiled’ and not included. Members cannot vote on the day and also vote by proxy.
By order of the Board
PCS Credit Union Secretary.
