This year we will be holding a motion based AGM on the day before our professional conference starts. This is early notice so that branches can begin their planning as you will be asked to send voting delegates. More information will be in the Community Practitioner Journal.
There are forms for submission of motions which should be completed and sent by Branch Secretaries by the deadline of 14 August 2017. There is no limit to the number of motions your branch can submit or second but they must relate to the professional work of the Association, its members or its members clients. The form is available here to download:-
AGM voting delegate form
Motions for debate form
Motions may be up to 50 words in length and should clearly outline what action is required by the Association. A supporting statement of up to 100 words may also be submitted with the motion outlining the rationale behind the motion.
Motions must be proposed by one branch or workplace and seconded by a different branch or workplace. Branches proposing a motion must send a delegate to the AGM who will speak to (make a statement in support of) the motion. Seconding branches may also speak to the motion.
Centres may also propose motions of urgency for consideration at the AGM but these must be submitted to the approvals committee prior to the AGM
All branches are required to nominate a delegate to the AGM. Delegates can be any CPHVA member provided that they have been elected at a branch meeting
CPHVA will pay for travel, subsistence and one night’s accommodation for your branch delegate to attend the AGM. Branches may send other members to attend the AGM. These members will be entitled to speak but may not vote.
