We actively encourage all members eligible to vote, to do so. Most resolutions are standard items and have a low acceptance threshold. Whereas the resolution to update the rules that we abide by require one third (around 240) of eligible members to vote. We currently run on the 2011 version of the rules and for best practice would like to adopt the more recent 2016 rules.

As this is the first time that the trust have held an AGM online so we have also attached a guide on the process if you are unable to attend, how the AGM online will work if you are and a breakdown of the nomination process if you are looking to stand for one of six places on the Mariners Trust board. In total we allowed 12 board members and we currently have 10 which includes 1 co-opted. Three of the board are due for re-election – Alan Rutter, Sandii Raithby and Ian Townsend whilst Haley Carver-Smith will be seeking election after being co-opted. The election for the board places will be entirely independently and Geoff Bielby from Hull City has very kindly agreed to undertake this role for us.
Only fully paid members of the Mariners Trust are entitled to attend the AGM. Anybody wishing to join the online AGM should email: email@example.com Membership status will be checked before a log in and further meeting information is issued.
