Residents Meeting & AGM

Dear Residents,

As you are aware, directors had planned to hold the Residents Management Company Annual General Meeting towards the end of June or in early July. We very much wanted to ensure the AGM could be a physical ‘face to face’ meeting however with the delay to the easing of COVID restrictions, this will not be possible.

Following discussion with Remus, we have decided to postpone the AGM until September (provisional date Tuesday 14th September) to ensure that we can hold the promised physical meeting. This will avoid the holiday period and provide the best chance for as many members to attend as possible.

We will however hold an informal virtual meeting for all residents during July (proposed date Tuesday 13th at 6pm) so that directors can provide key updates and residents can raise any questions or concerns.

As we have noted previously, we do not have to wait until the AGM for members to join as directors and as such if you would like to get involved, do come forward and express your interest.

AGM Postponement

The last Annual General Meeting was held on Thursday 9th January 2020 and ordinarily it would now be time to call the next meeting. However as three directors have only been in post since September, as we have just changed over managing agent and as we have some other key matters that all directors are involved in, the decision has been taken that we will not hold a General Meeting this January.

There is no legal need for a limited company to hold an Annual General Meeting, unless the Articles of Association require the company to do so and the constitution of CCMC Ltd does not specify that one must be held.

The accounts for the 2019/20 Service Charge Year (to 30th June 2020) are being prepared by POD however there have been a number of queries that we are waiting for answers on. Once the draft accounts have been approved by directors they will be sent for final checking by external accountants and will be included in a Chairs report to be published in due course.

Directors will arrange a residents meeting following publication of the Chairs report and we will also push for Channels Management Company (now a Community Interest Company) to hold the development wide residents meeting that was promised so that some of the broader estate-wide issues that have come to light recently can be discussed.

A formal General Meeting will be held as we approach the 2020/21 Service Charge year end.

RMC Director Appointments

As previously flagged, existing RMC directors will resign at the AGM on Thursday 9th January and new directors will be appointed.

If you wish to stand it is important to understand that as a director of a limited company, you must:

Directors are able to hire other people to manage some of these things day-to-day (for example, POD Management or an accountant) however it is the directors that remain legally responsible for the company’s records, accounts and performance.

To ensure there is sensible and practical governance in relation to the running of the RMC, the following will be proposed at the AGM:

  • To limit the number of directors to either 3 or 5 and to rotate annually;
  • To use dedicated sub committees;
  • To assign each director specific roles;

Each Director is expected to be up to date with their service charge payments and regular attendance at board meetings is mandatory.

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening at the Annual General Meeting.
