ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2022

Free

The Society for Existential Analysis Annual General Meeting 2022

Date & Time: Sunday 20th March 2022, 11am

To be held online via Zoom, with in-person meeting, if possible.

OPEN TO MEMBERS ONLY

We warmly invite all members of the Society to attend this year’s Annual General Meeting on Sunday 20th March 2022 at 11am.  The AGM will once again be held online via Zoom, though we hope that if COVID guidelines permit we will also be able to meet in-person (confirmation of this, and the potential venue, will be provided as soon as practically possible).  

Attending the AGM is free.  However, since it is ‘members only’, we ask attendees to book online so that we can monitor numbers and grant ‘dial-in’ access.  You will receive booking details via another email shortly.  Details for the Zoom meeting will be distributed to registrants the day before the AGM.

This year’s meeting is of particular importance as it will see the election of the Chair of the Society’s Executive Committee.  Under our Constitution, the Chair serves a term of three years, and election of a new Chair takes place at the beginning of the third year of that term.  This is the third year as Chair for our incumbent, Paola Pomponi, and she is seeking re-election for one further term.  However, nominations from other members of the Society for this position are welcome.  Should someone other than Paola be elected, they will serve as Chair-Elect for one year until Paola steps down and they take over as Chair.

In addition, there are several other positions on the Executive Committee that are up for election this year, nominations for which are invited from members.  Note that nominations for membership of the Executive Committee, including the Chair, may only be for individuals who have been members of the Society for at least one year.  Further details are set out below on how to nominate someone for Chair, and make other nominations to the Executive Committee, as well as details on the Committee positions available and nominations already received.

Alongside nominations to the Executive Committee, proposals for motions to be discussed and voted on at the AGM are also requested. Again, details on how to do this are provided below, but please note that both nominations to the Committee and proposals for motions carry a deadline of 21 days before the AGM and must be seconded by another member of the Society.

Following the formal AGM proceedings, an Open Forum will take place where members can pose questions and challenges for broader discussion.  Members are invited to forward topics they would like raised during the Open Forum in advance to the Secretary (the deadline and guidance on how to do this is provided below).  

All communications relating to the AGM, including proposed motions, nominations, and open forum topics, should be made to the Secretary at:

secretary@existentialanalysis.org.uk

Finally, you will note several attachments for your attention, as follows:

  • Form for Nominating the Chairperson
  • Form for Other Nominations to the Executive Committee
  • List of Nominations to the Executive Committee Already Made
  • Proposal for Motion Form
  • Minutes of the 2020 AGM

 WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON THE DAY

Further information now follows on nominations for Chairperson, making other nominations for the Executive Committee, proposing motions, and proposing topics for the Open Forum:

NOMINATIONS FOR CHAIRPERSON: If you would like to make a nomination for Chairperson, please send the Chairperson Nomination Form (below) to the SEA Secretary, to arrive no later than 11am on Sunday 27th February 2022.   Note that nominees must have been members of the Society for at least one year, and require both a nominator and seconder.  Should you require further details on what being Chairperson involves, please contact the Secretary.

To aid the Membership in their decision-making, nominees for Chairperson are asked to provide a brief statement (max. 300 words) to support their candidacy that will be distributed to the Membership in advance of the AGM.  This statement should outline the nominee’s suitability for the role, and offer some indication of how they intend to execute the office should they be successful.  The statement should be sent to the Secretary, to arrive no later than midday on Sunday 6th March 2022.  This will allow time for such statements to be collated and distributed to the Membership prior to the AGM.  Link to: SEA AGM 2022 – Chairperson Nomination Form
