AGM

To all Company Members,

Hope everyone is keeping well. It’s that time of year again where we need to think about our AGM. For obvious reasons this year will need to run a little differently so we will be holding an online AGM on the 1st March at 7.30pm (zoom link will be sent closer to the time).

The AGM is open to all members and is a chance to update everyone on our progress this year, decide how membership/production fees will work in the upcoming year, discuss any other business and hold elections to the committee.

The following positions will be up for election. If you are a member and would like to nominate yourself for any one of these roles then please contact any committee member or email secretary@online.thecompanysheffield.co.uk. Nominations are open right up to the vote itself so you can nominate yourself on the night if you prefer. If you’re unsure or would like to have a chat with current committee members about what the roles entail then please get in touch, we’re always keen for new faces on the committee!
Accountant
Responsible for financial oversight of The Company including Box Office
Artistic Director
Responsible for maintaining artistic standards for our productions and supporting production teams
Chair
Responsible for overseeing the committee
Secretary
Responsible for organising meetings and keeping minutes
Company Representatives (x 3 posts)
Act as a liaison between members and the committee to raise any concerns
We will also be appointing associate posts (wardrobe manager, technical manager, PR/social media co-ordinator).

In order to run for a committee position or to vote you need to be a paid member of The Company ahead of the AGM. Due to having to postpone multiple productions this year we haven’t been collecting membership fees. We are hopefully moving to an online system for this to streamline this process in the next couple of weeks. If you would like to remain an active member of the society then a link will be circulated closer to the AGM to allow you to make this payment. Due to the current situation we are not expecting you to pay in full, we’re asking for a small payment (exact amount up to you but we suggest £5 or under) - we will ask you to pay the rest once we’re back on stage.

Please also get in touch if you have anything you wish to raise at the AGM - we’re keen to make sure that all members have the opportunity to have their voice heard.

Finally the committee would like to thank you all for your support this year. It’s definitely been a challenging year for all of us but we’ve still managed some great successes and we couldn’t do it without our members!

Lots of love,
The Company Committee
