Group's Annual General Meeting

Notes of the 5th Colchester Scout Group AGM held on Tuesday 29th March.

Welcome and Opening Statement

Mike Acott CSL


Overview of AGM:  Every Scout Group is a charity in its own right.  As such the charity trustees (the Executive Committee) are required under the Charities Act to hold an Annual General Meeting to provide information to its Members on the financial running of the charity, and to elect people onto the Executive Committee to act as trustee for the charity. As well as electing executive members and approving the accounts, the AGM must also approve who will be 'auditing' the accounts before the next AGM.

The Group consists of two sections at present: Beaver Scouts and Cub Scouts, although we would like to reinstate our Scout Troop.
