Special General Meeting followed by Annual General meeting 
22nd September 2021 7-7:45pm

North of Tyne LPC, will conduct a virtual Special General Meeting on 22nd September 2021 from 7-7:15pm.

A virtual AGM will follow from 7:15-7:45pm at which the LPC annual accounts will be presented. Attached is a copy of our annual report and accounts that have been published on our website.

 

The special meeting of contractors is being called to amend the LPC Constitution to allow the Committee to delay the elections for LPC membership by one year. Currently Members Term of Office expire on 31st March 2022. However, proposals for change about the future model of local and national contractor representation and support, are likely to be put to a contractor vote within the next year. For this reason, the Committee considers that the elections should be delayed until later in the year when the new model of support has been determined by the sector. To achieve this, we propose to amend the Constitution of the North of Tyne LPC as follows:

Existing Clause – 13. Term of Office

Subject to paragraphs 14 and 16, members of the Committee shall hold office from 1 April in the year of the election or appointment for a period of 4 years.

 

New Clause – 13. Term of Office

Subject to paragraphs 14 and 16, members of the Committee shall hold office from 1 April in the year of the election or appointment for a period of 4 years. [Except that the term of office starting on 1 April 2022 shall be postponed until 1 April 2023 and current LPC members shall hold office for a period of 5 years.]

 

Voting papers for both meetings have been sent via email and pharmoutcomes to contractors and via email to CCA Companies

 Please complete and email to Geraint Morris at [email protected] by 12 noon 20th September 2021.

If you indicate on your voting papers that you wish to virtually attend we will forward you the ZOOM meeting details.
