23rd Annual General Meeting (62nd AGM since MS Ireland’s foundation)

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 you to consent to the furnishing of the accompanying AGM financial documentation via our website instead of by post.  Please complete the webform at the bottom of this page.

We would like to thank those members who have already consented to being provided with the AGM financial documentation via our website. 

The call for motions are advertised below.  We have our full complement of Board Members so there will be no call out for Board members this year.  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.  Where we do not have a postal or email address for you, service of notice of the AGM on you will be done by this notice on the MS Ireland website.

The Annual General Meeting of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland, at which Board members are re-elected, is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 17thth  September 2022 on zoom (time to be confirmed). 

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

The procedures for motions 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 before 4.00 p.m. on Thursday, 15th September 2022.
