In accordance with the Memorandum and Articles of Association, notice is hereby given of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the United Kingdom Hearing Conservation Association (UKHCA) to be held virtually by Zoom webinar at 15.00 on .
Please find below the agenda, we invite you to register your intention to join us via the link below:
The primary motion to be tabled for which we require your vote and support as a member is for UKHCA to move to an annual membership renewal framework and pricing structure. Currently we are grateful to our founding members for their seed funding which we have used to establish our web presence, purchase some communications collateral (pop ups and flyers) and appoint a management company (Fitwise) to help with our quarterly newsletter and administration support. For full details see the attached ‘UKHCA membership process’
To allow a more sustainable future for the Association and in order to best serve the needs of our members now and in the future, we feel it is timely to put in place a more formal and optional arrangement going forwards. We anticipate, with Member support, this will commence with the new financial year April 2021.
Please also find attached the UKHCA Annual Report and 2021 – 22 strategic plan, the financial report will follow prior to the AGM.
