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

This year's AGM will be held at 11am on Thursday 22 July 2021 at Nationwide House, Pipers Way, Swindon, SN38 1NW. However, we decided in April 2021 when we were planning our event that the minimum number of directors and colleague members would be present in person.

Eligible members* will receive full details of how to vote online or by post and watch the event online from Wednesday 16 June 2021.

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 4 April 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).
