Our 2021 Motions
What is a motion?
A motion is a proposal that is voted on by members at our AGM. Motions can be put forward by our business, our Members’ Council, Independent Society Members (ISMs) and by individual members and some motions are required by our Rules.
Motions make it simple to bring forward matters of policy or issues to the AGM which can be debated by our wider membership.
