Annual General Meeting results 2016
As a mutual building society, each year we invite members to attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM). The Society continues to be owned and controlled by its members and we seek to ensure the Society remains successful and independent, putting your needs and contributions central to our decisions without the involvement of external shareholders.
At the AGM held on the 14th April 2016 our members have voted overwhelmingly in favour of all the resolutions. So we would like to say a big thank you to all members who took the time to vote this year. Details of the full results are set out below.
