Our Annual General Meeting will take place on Monday 16th November at 7pm on Zoom. It is open to all residents in the local area. It is an opportunity to hear about the LCCC activities over the last year, and to look forward to 2020/2021.
Scotland’s Climate Assembly will bring together over 100 people, representative of the population of Scotland, to tackle the question:
‘How should Scotland change to tackle the climate emergency in an effective and fair way?’
<p “>Assembly members will gather over 6 weekends to hear evidence, deliberate on the challenges and come up with some recommendations for government. It all begins on the 7th November.
Before we get underway, the Assembly wants to hear from as much of the public as possible. How do you think Scotland should address climate change? How do we make sure solutions are both effective – working for the planet – and fair – working for everyone?
We therefore invite you to share your ideas and comments on our online platform, which will be open until the 26th October. Please share this information with your fellow council members.
Please note that this is an online ‘business’ (members-only) meeting, mostly discussing how LCCC will conduct its affairs online, in particular its annual general meeting.
Welcome, introductions, attendance, apologies
Approval of minutes of business meeting 21 September 2020
to agree: LCCC to hold an AGM on 16 November 2020 using the following format, agenda and rules of engagement and currently online only:
While the online platform will be decided by the Communications Group, (taking into account the rules of engagement below, as well as the need to accommodate users of Council hardware and members of the public), members need to agree a budget of a maximum of £570 towards this
Using the chosen platform, a prior technical and logistical test needs to be carried out as a dress rehearsal
the maximum length of an online meeting should not exceed 60 minutes
The Chair will obtain proper dispensation from the Standing Orders (see SCHEME FOR COMMUNITY COUNCILS) for the AGM that is less ambiguous than the current ‘We can now endorse holding AGMs using virtual means’ (CEC 13-08-20)
