This year marks the 10 year anniversary of the launch of BWCE. We had been hoping to celebrate with you all in person over the summer months. Sadly, we are not in a position to arrange any large gatherings at the moment. As soon as this position changes we will, of course, organise a suitable celebration.
As we enter our second decade, this is an important time for both BWCE and humanity as a whole. We have many new renewable energy projects under development and are exploring exciting new approaches to expanding our community energy model to better meet the urgent challenges of the climate crisis.
Our AGM in 2020 will be held on the afternoon of Saturday 12th September. As a result of the restrictions caused by the Covid 19 pandemic we are also planning for our AGM to be held via Zoom. Please save the date and further details and an invitation will be sent out in August.
This year, you will have the opportunity to cast your vote for 2 elected Directors. So we look forward to hearing from members who would like to stand for the role of elected Director. The deadline for nominations is 20th July. You can download a nomination form through the following link: here
From our existing board members:
- Jon Bateman who has been a Director for 6 years will be stepping down. We are enormously grateful for his contribution during this time.
- Jolyon Orchard who has served for 3 years will be standing for re-election.
More information on the role of non-executive director can be found here.
More details on the election process, including key dates for the election can be found here.
You will be receiving the timings of the meeting, agenda and voting instructions during the second week of August. Everyone will have the opportunity to cast votes for the election of Directors and other AGM resolutions online prior to the meeting itself. Details of how to do this will be issued with the agenda and papers.
