All companies must hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) where the company accounts are reported. The BDA’s AGM is also an opportunity for members to hear about the achievements of the last 12 months and hear any important news about the strategic direction of the Association.
The 2023 AGM took place on Tuesday 19 September 2023 at 6pm.
We welcomed over 100 members to the Annual General Meeting, the 2022 AGM minutes were accepted alongside the 2022/2023 annual accounts and annual report. The new auditors Sayer Vincent LLP were appointed. Please note that Crossley will remain the BDA accountants.
The Board of Directors appointments and Country Board Chars were noted including governance changes on the new professional committee and EDI.
