Annual General Meeting
Art Fund warmly invites all members to our 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The AGM is our yearly member meeting to share Art Fund’s Annual Report and update on our activities and financial performance over the past 12 months.
Members can ask questions of our Board and Director at the meeting and are also asked to vote on re-election of Art Fund trustees, who must retire by rotation in accordance with our Royal Charter & Byelaws.
The AGM provides an opportunity for members to come together to meet each other and the Art Fund team, while celebrating the year’s achievements.
Art Fund 2022/23 Annual Report
This contains our Trustees’ Annual Report and Art Fund’s financial statements for the year-ending December 2023.
At the AGM, you will have the chance to hear from Art Fund’s Chair, Treasurer and Director about Art Fund’s performance over the past year including some of the key highlights from our funding programme.
Postponement of our EGM
We will no longer be holding an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) after the AGM as previously advertised.
The intention was that a final amended Royal Charter and Byelaws would be shared with members in advance of an EGM, at which members would then vote on the proposed changes. Before members vote on these changes, the Privy Council review all documents and consult widely with their advisors in government and the Charity Commission.
Unfortunately, despite beginning this consultation with the Privy Council in March (following our member consultation period), we have still not received final feedback due to delays caused by their focus on coronation activities. We want to share the final amended Charter and Byelaws with all members with enough time for them to be fully considered and digested before a vote at an EGM.
Due to the Privy Council delay, we have therefore made the decision to postpone the EGM and schedule it for a later date, where again, all members will be invited to attend and vote.
You can still read all current documents relating to updating the Royal Charter and Byelaws. When the final documents are available for review, we will share an update in Art Quarterly (September edition) and via our website and hope to reorganise our EGM and member vote for the Autumn.
