Please register by clicking on the ‘Register for the AGM’ button at the bottom of this page. You will be taken to the registration page of our webinar platform, GoToWebinar, as the AGM will be hosted virtually. Please note there is a capacity for 500 members to attend.
Who can vote?
Only chartered members (FCQI, MCQI) of the Institute are eligible to vote. If you're a chartered member, you'll have the option of registering a proxy vote or voting on the day. We'll send you an email from our AGM platform provider, Mi-Voice.
How can I vote if I’m attending?
You will receive an email about voting two days before the event from Mi-Voice. If you are eligible to vote and have not received an email detailing how you can vote by that time, please contact [email protected]
Am I entitled to a proxy vote?
Voting members (FCQI, MCQI) are entitled to appoint a proxy to exercise all or any of their rights to virtually attend, speak and vote at the meeting. If you are a voting member, you will receive email instructions from Mi-Voice about registering for proxy voting.
You can only appoint a proxy using the procedures set out in these notes and through the Mi-Voice website.
Does the proxy have to be a member of the institute?
A proxy does not need to be a member of the institute but must attend the meeting to represent you. Where you appoint as your proxy someone other than the Chairman, you are responsible for ensuring that they attend the meeting and are aware of your voting intentions. If you wish your proxy to make any comments on your behalf, you will need to appoint someone other than the Chairman and give them the relevant instructions.
Can I attend if I’ve submitted a proxy vote?
Appointment of a proxy does not preclude you from attending the meeting and voting in person. If you have appointed a proxy and attend the meeting in person, your proxy appointment will automatically be terminated.
