Ordinary resolutions, proposed by the board

A motion to appoint board members

The Election Rules require an election of board members at this meeting.

This meeting resolves to hold an election in accordance with the Election Rules and to appoint the elected candidates as members of the Board of Trustees. Should some of the newly-elected Directors be required under Article 16.3 to retire at the next or the next-but-one Annual General Meeting, such Directors shall be those who receive the fewest first preferences. In the event of a tie, the teller shall draw lots.

A motion to note the annual report and accounts

This Meeting resolves that the annual report and accounts be noted.

A motion to set membership fees

The Membership Rules require the membership fees be reviewed at each AGM.

This meeting resolves to maintain the membership fees unchanged for individual members at £5 per year and for all member organisations at £100 per year.

A motion to appoint auditors

At the 2016 AGM Kingston Smith LLP were appointed as the company's independent examiners. Following changes to the conditions attached to our Wikimedia Foundation grant we are now required to obtain a full audit, and we once again need to appoint auditors.

This Meeting resolves to appoint Kingston Smith LLP as auditors until the next AGM, and to authorise the directors to determine the auditors' remuneration.
