Co-operative Meetings

The Goulden House Co-operative hold General Meetings (GM) every quarter and an Annual General Meeting (AGM) every summer.

There are standard agenda items at each meeting and all members have the opportunity to add a relevant item by contacting the estate office at least three weeks prior to the meeting date.

Discussions and decisions are minuted at each meeting and we aim to have the draft minutes available on our website within 10 days of the meeting. You will find the minutes of the most recent meeting on the downloads page or below.

Meetings are held in the community room at Entrance B or online using Zoom.

Proxy Voting

If you are entitled to vote but cannot attend the meeting, you can appoint a proxy using this form: Form of Proxy. The form is also available from the office.

Why reconvene? Under our Rules (section 23), we cannot conduct a meeting unless there is a quorom of 25 voting members. 15 members [rule changed at AGM July 2017] The rules say the meeting can be reconvened a week later and the quorum will be the members present. Here is the relevant section:

PROCEEDINGS AT GENERAL MEETING
23. (a) No business shall be transacted at any general meeting of the Co-operative unless a quorum of voting members is present at the time the meeting proceeds to business. Fifteen voting members shall form a quorum.
(b) If no quorum is present within half an hour of the time appointed for the meeting, the meeting, if convened on a requisition of the members shall be dissolved, but in any other case shall stand adjourned to the same day in the next week at the same time. If at the adjourned meeting a quorum is not present within half an hour of the time appointed for the meeting, the members present shall be a quorum.
