AGM

AGM

Because we’re a building society - run for the benefit of our members - you get a say in how we do things. Whether that’s the products we sell, the location of new branches or the charities we support.

Our AGM is your opportunity to have your say. It’s where you can vote for our board members and help with other key decisions that make a real difference to Nationwide and our members.

Where and when

Every year, if you’re eligible to vote*, you'll receive an AGM pack in the third week of June. Your pack will give you all the details you need to use your vote. 

If you have registered to receive access to AGM documents via email, you'll receive an email that comes from either:
nationwide@nationwide-service.co.uk or
nationwide@nationwide-communications.co.uk.

Please add these to your address book to ensure you receive future AGM emails.

*Voting rights

If you save or bank with us you'll need to be 18 or over on 18 July 2019 and have had at least £100 saved or banked with us in a membership account on 4 April 2019. You'll also need to be saving or banking with us in such an account on 15 July 2019 if you appoint a representative, or on 18 July 2019 if you vote in person at the AGM.

If you have a mortgage account with us you must be 18 or over on 18 July 2019 and have owed us at least £100 on your mortgage loan on 4 April 2019 and owe us at least £100 on such a mortgage loan on 15 July 2019 if you appoint a representative, or on 18 July 2019 if you vote in person at the AGM.

In the case of joint accounts, you also need to be the first person named on the account.

Standing for election
A member wishing to be considered as a candidate to stand for election to the Board at AGM time must have the support of 250 Society qualified two year members and provide evidence of this on or before the end of the business year, which is April 4th each year.

Putting forward a resolution
To put forward a resolution for a members’ vote at AGM time, a member must have the support of 500 qualified two-year members and the resolution must be received on or before the end of the business year, which is on 4 April each year.

In response to a request made at the 2011 AGM, we have again reviewed whether the level of member support needed to either stand for election or to put forward a resolution remains appropriate. We have concluded that in both instances the requirements are still appropriate. They are in line with others throughout the building society sector and adhere to the Building Societies Act 1986.

It is in the interests of our total membership, and we're required to ensure, that candidates asking to be considered for election have reasonable support and that any issues put forward as a suggested resolution are also reasonably supported. That is why such requirements exist and full details are contained in our Memorandum and Rules (PDF).
