Jersey Annual meeting of members 2023

Wednesday 17 May 2023
Radisson Blu Waterfront hotel, St Helier
From 6pm (registration opens at 5.30pm)

What is the AMM?

Our annual meeting of members  (otherwise known as our 'AMM') is our version of an AGM (annual general meeting).  It is our yearly gathering to allow all our members an insight into what has been happening at their Coop.

As a co-operative business, we are owned by our shareholders (that is, you, our members). The annual meeting of members is the opportunity for members and colleagues to come together to discuss the past year of our business, and look forward to what is coming up in the future. Members are able to vote through motions and rules, plus elect new members to the board of directors.

It is also the chance for members to ask questions, voice their views and share their thoughts and experience about our Coop.  

It really is the best way to get involved and be a part of your Coop and to help shape its future.

What happens at the AMM?

There is a mix of formal and informal elements of our meetings.

Every year at the AMM, there are certain items we have to present to our members by law. This includes:

  1. Approving the minutes from the previous years' AMM
  2. Approving the board of directors’ report for the past year
  3. Approving the financial statements
  4. Appointing an independent auditor for the business
  5. Declaring the dividend for members

There may be other topics that are covered at our AMM. For instance, if one or more members of the board are reaching the end of their term, then it is likely that members will be voting in new members to be elected. Or, if new rules or amendments to rules are being proposed, as a member you can vote to whether it is carried or not.

On top of this, there is also the opportunity to meet colleagues from the business, suppliers and local producers, plus chat with other members of your Channel Islands Coop.​

Why should I attend?

The Coop is owned by you. This is why our AMM is the opportunity to vote to receive your dividend and to elect fellow members to represent your voice on the board. Whether you choose to attend in-person or online, we recommend participating in the AMM so that you can share your views on your Coop. 

What's more, if you attend there is also the added bonus of taking part in our raffle with the chance to win some fantastic prizes including £200 in Coop vouchers, air fryers and a hamper of local delights!

When and where is the AMM?

Members can attend the annual meeting of members in-person or online.
