ARC AGM 2017 descends on Manchester
ARC is your union and the AGM is a powerful way to exercise your voice. Make sure you get your issues on the agenda.
The 2017 AGM will be held at the Manchester Conference Centre on 16 and 17 May 2017. As part of the planning process, the rules require that formal notice be given of the procedures that Centres need to adopt to comply with the timetable set out within the ARC rules. Centres will need to be planning meetings to fit in with the AGM procedures and deadline.
Before you skim read and possibly dismiss the significance of the AGM, or put this to one side, don’t! This is your union and your voice and the AGM is a powerful way of exercising that voice – either with your colleagues, or on their behalf. That is why it is important that Centres meet to discuss what action they want to highlight and persuade union members to take forward. The AGM has at the heart of its function the shaping ARC’s policy, so put your issue on the agenda.
Yes, the timetable is formal and the procedures at the AGM can look daunting (but just look at past first-time attendees articles to see why it isn’t actually that daunting) but the timetable below is the countdown for the annual gathering of all centres, branches and member representatives. So what better way to state the direction of travel you want the union to take?
From writing motions to speaking at the conference, guidance is available and the AGM is the best opportunity to take forward your Centre’s views, direct the executive, test and debate motions, network and learn, and, dare we say, socialise.
We want the AGM to be representative and would encourage new members or those who have not been to AGM’s previously to consider attending. Find out more via your Centre meeting.
