Annual General Meeting 2020

This page contains the supporting documents ahead of Trivallis’ Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Covid- 19 impact and our plans for our 2020 AGM

Our Rules require us to hold an AGM each year within 6 months of the financial year end (by 30 September 2020). Trivallis’ AGM will take place on Monday 28th September 2020 at 10.00am.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UK Government has introduced a new law (the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020) to give temporary flexibility (up to 30 September 2020) for businesses to avoid the need for attendance in person at AGMs.

Trivallis has taken legal advice to ensure we comply with our Rules and correctly apply the flexibility the new temporary law allows, when planning and holding our 2020 AGM.

The new law does not affect the rights of our shareholders to receive notice of the AGM and vote on the matters listed on the AGM agenda.  The new law does, however, give flexibility as to how this year’s meeting is conducted.

To ensure the safety of  all concerned, the Board of Directors has agreed that Trivallis’ 2020 AGM will be conducted virtually, with only the required minimum number of shareholders present in accordance with Rule C17.6. This will consist of board members who are also shareholders, plus shareholding members of the tenant panel. All other shareholders will be asked not to attend and to submit a proxy vote instead.

The following documents, relevant to the business which is to be conducted at the meeting, are available to download below. Hard copies will be made available on request.

  • The minutes of the previous AGM held on 30th September 2019.
  • A copy of the proposed new rules.

You can find a copy of the annual report and accounts for the year ended 31/03/2020, including the report of the directors and auditors of the Community Mutual and the affairs of the Community Mutual for the same period, on our reports page.

The following successful candidates will be recommended at the AGM for appointment to Trivallis’ Board:

(Tenant) Collette Taylor

(Independents) Julian John, Stephen Brooks and Dr Chibuzo Amadi.

Collette Taylor was previously employed in the Health Service and is an active member in her community, with roles on various governing bodies. Collette is clearly passionate about the importance of the tenant’s voice in decision making and making a difference in communities.

Julian John is the Director of Cwmtaf Morgannwg MIND.

Dr Amadi is a lecturer at the University of South Wales.

Stephen Brooks is the Executive Director of External Affairs at Sustrans.

Combined they bring a wealth of extensive experience, understanding of our communities and both the challenges and opportunities faced. In addition, their skills within financial viability, sustainability and environmental impact links to the priorities for Trivallis at this time.
