What is the AGM?
An AGM (or Annual General Meeting) is the meeting of the members of an organisation. Each year we invite eligible members to vote and help shape the future of your Society.
What do I get to vote on?
It's a great opportunity to have your say and vote on who the board members are and how the Society is run. If you attend the meeting itself, you can voice your thoughts and ask the Board any questions you may have.
We donated 20p for each online vote
Each year you can vote online, in branch, by post or at the AGM itself. We donate 20p for each online vote and 10p for each paper vote. The money goes to Samaritans and Leeds Building Society Foundation.
A total of 13.5% of members voted in 2019, with 30% of those votes being cast online. Just over £9,700 was raised from votes, and this money was shared between the Leeds Building Society Foundation and Samaritans, our charity partner.
