Annual General Meeting

20th Annual General Meeting (59th AGM since MS Ireland’s foundation)

Dear Member,

In an effort to reduce costs and with the passing of our Constitution in 2016, we are now able to send AGM notices to you by email.  However, we need your consent that you will access the accompanying AGM financial documentation on our website instead of by post. We will be contacting you by email or phone in the coming weeks to seek your agreement on this and to get your email address. Alternatively please complete the attached slip and return to Alice McKeon, MS Ireland, National Office, 80 Northumberland Road, Dublin 4.D04 T856

We would like to thank those members who have already consented to accessing the AGM financial documentation on our website.  

The AGM legal notice will be sent to each member by email (where we have an email address for you) or by post along with the next issue of MS News.  

The Annual General Meeting of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland, at which Board members are elected, normally takes place on the same weekend as the annual conference which this year is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 21st September in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Limerick (time to be confirmed).

The results of the vote for the board vacancies and motions, if any, plus the council’s nomination to the board will be announced at the AGM.

The procedures for motions and board nominations are listed hereunder. 

Every registered member is entitled to a vote. For those unable to attend the AGM, proxy papers will be available on our website three weeks prior to the AGM and must be returned to National Office, MS Ireland, 80 Northumberland Rd, Dublin 4 D04 T856 before 5pm on Thursday, 19th September 2019.
