2014 Annual General Meeting and non-executive director elections

24th April 2014

Nominet’s 2014 Annual General Meeting will be held at 10am on 21 May 2014 in Oxford. All members are welcome to attend. For further details and to register, please click here.

Notice of the AGM and details of business to be carried out, candidate statements for the non-executive director elections, and voting papers have been mailed to members. If you have not received your copy by Monday 28 April 2014, please email [email protected], giving your account number and requesting a further pack. Nominet’s 2013 Annual Report and Accounts has also been mailed to members.

Members will be asked to vote on three Ordinary Resolutions. In addition to receiving the 2013 Annual Report and Accounts and re-appointing Grant Thornton as our auditors, the Board is seeking confirmation of a short extension to the term of Dr Clive Grace OBE until the end of the AGM 2015. This re-appointment would ensure continuity over the audit and reporting of the current financial year.

Five candidates have been nominated in this year’s non-executive director elections, which are conducted by secret ballot. Two positions are available and the directors elected will serve a three-year term. The candidates are:

• Denesh Bhabuta
• Oliver Hope
• Sebastien Lahtinen
• Oscar O’Connor
• Hazel Pegg

Voting for the non-executive director elections commences on 24 April 2014 and closes at noon on 21 May 2014. Candidate election statements are viewable online here. Please note that the opinions, assertions and views contained in the materials provided by candidates are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Nominet.

To encourage member participation, a third party supplier, City Park, will undertake a calling campaign in the weeks leading up to the AGM. They will explain and address any procedural issues, and will answer any questions members may have. They will convey the Board’s recommendations on the Ordinary Resolutions outlined above and, if asked, on the non-executive director elections.

Members may receive a phone call to this effect; however we encourage you to register your attendance at the AGM, or return your ballot paper and proxy form, as soon as possible regardless.
