Our 2015 AGM was held at 3pm on Thursday 21 May at The Sandbanks Hotel in Poole

The AGM was attended by 51 members of the Society.

Rachel Small, LV='s Company Secretary welcomed everyone to the meeting and the Chairman, Mark Austen outlined the achievements of the Society in 2014 and the strategic plans for the future. Richard Rowney the Managing Director of Life and Pensions then invited any questions from those in attendance.

During the formal proceedings, seven resolutions, including the re-election of three board directors were passed.

We received 49,327 proxy votes which meant that the turnout was 5.55% (2014: 4.84%). 26% of the overall votes were conducted online. The results of the proxy votes are shown in the table below.

We asked those members who cast a proxy vote to nominate a charity to benefit from a donation. The vote from Mr Hall of Durham was selected and so £15,000 will go to Cancer Research.

Mr Mead from Harrow won a Samsung 48" curved 3D TV for voting online.
