At the Mansfield Building Society our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is not just a formality, it’s our opportunity to connect with members in a way that only a mutual building society can. We’re owned by our members and the AGM allows them to have their say by asking questions directly to the Board and voting on key matters.
For the last few years, we’ve combined the AGM with our community celebration and awards event – inviting members, business partners, community groups and charities to come together to help us celebrate the dedication and commitment of volunteers in the region, and to recognise the Society’s ‘Community Star’.
Understandably, due to the Government imposed lockdown to combat Coronavirus, we weren’t able to do that in 2020 and we had to hold the AGM behind closed doors for the first time in our 150 year history.
Keeping in touch with our valued members is so important to us. That’s why our newly appointed Chief Executive, Paul Wheeler, and recently retired Chief Executive, Gev Lynott, have specially recorded the videos below to share the highlights of the Society’s performance in 2019, and also the results of this year’s AGM voting.
Paul talks through the voting results and thanks retiring Chief Executive, Gev Lynott, for his service to the Society. He finishes by updating on how the Society has adjusted to the Coronavirus crisis.
