The AGM was held this year at John Deere, Harby Road, Langar, Nottingamshire. The AGM was followed by an EGM (Extraordinary General Meeting) that was required to confirm updates to the Memorandum and Articles of association. The EGM resolution was passed unanimously. The documents are available in the Downloads section.
There are a few key changes in the revised Memorandum and Articles of Association
- The Associate of IAgrE (AIAgrE) grade will become Affiliate to make it clearer to which grade each belongs and to avoid confusion with the Associate Member (AMIAgrE) grade. We will be encouraging Associates to upgrade to Associate Member.
- A new Technician grade will be created between Affiliate and Associate Member to give technicians greater recognition for their achievements.
- The Associate Member now becomes a corporate (voting) grade to better reflect the persons influence and qualifications.
- Firming up the role of the IAgrE Advisory Council and the Trustees who go on to form the Executive Committee. The latter have the legal responsibilities associated with Company law.
For a full explanation of all the changes please read this article.
