We’re now inviting members to vote for or against all AGM voting items, including those motions that gained enough support at the previous stage as well as the ordinary resolutions.
We emailed members on 4 October with a unique voting code and instructions on how to vote, and we'll send reminder emails to those who haven’t yet voted through the course of the month.
We’re working with Mi-Voice Electoral Services to make the voting process as easy as possible for you. If you don't receive your email from firstname.lastname@example.org, contact Mi-Voice on +44 (0) 2380 763987, email email@example.com. or request your Unique Voter Code (UVC) to be resent to you.
You can join the AGM forum to discuss the motions with fellow members by visiting Mi-Voice. You'll be asked to agree to the guidelines and terms and conditions of service. Please take time to read them before you access the platform.
Our 2021 AGM takes place online on Friday 5 November and is open to all members. We're working on an exciting programme of events for the day.
There will be a roundup of our year with a live Q&A session with the Board. This year's keynote presentations come from Jabeer Butt, BACP Vice President and Chief Executive of the Race Equality Foundation, and Josh Hepple, a Freelance Equality Trainer whose It changed my life article appeared in June’s edition of Therapy Today.
Jabeer's presentation, Racism, radicalism and reality: an exploration of the impact of discrimination and disadvantage, will addresses the everyday experiences of discrimination and disadvantage, and their impact on individuals, families and communities.
Josh talks with Mel Halacre, from BACP's EDI Task and Finish Group, about how counselling changed his life and the barriers disabled people often face in accessing counselling. He'll share his experiences of therapy as a disabled man and offer therapists some practical tips on working with disabled clients.
We'll also announce the results of AGM voting and introduce our new BACP Board member, as voted for by you, our members.
We’ll be streaming the meeting live, and if you haven’t done so in advance, you'll be able to vote on the motions and other AGM voting items while you watch online. Voting will close at 1pm and the results will be announced live later in the meeting.
A recording of the meeting will be available afterwards through our catch-up service.
