Annual General Meeting 2016: Outcomes

Wednesday 14 September 2016

We held our Annual General Meeting last night (13 September 2016).  Those attending enjoyed hearing a thought-provoking speech about women in business from our guest speaker Isla Cruden.

Our Board Chair Douglas Russell gave a positive update on Albyn’s progress during the last year, and he thanked the staff for all their hard work in achieving this.  Douglas announced that the Board has agreed to increase the amount of new homes we will be building over the next five years from 500 to 750, with the potential to increase this by another 250.

At the meeting two Board members stood down in accordance with the Society’s Rules and both were re-elected.  They were: Douglas Russell and Gavin Sinclair.

Due to their relocation out of the area, we lost three Board members in recent months: Karen Williams, Pauline Dingwall and Thomas Solle.  Gail Linden had also stepped down from the Board. All were thanked for their contribution to the Board.

Three new Board members were elected, and so we welcome Ian Fosbrooke; Sandy Gracie; and Shaun Smith.

Our Chief Executive and Chair gave presentations which are contained in our Annual Report summary document. This can be accessed here: Annual Report 2015 16. This document is only available online. If you would like a printed copy sent to you, please contact our Corporate Team (email LINK).
