Press Release - 2019 Saab Owners Club AGM


The Saab Owners Club AGM took place at the Fieldhead Hotel, Markfield Leicestershire, Saturday 19th October

Dr Os Reid as Chairman welcomed all to the meeting and introduced the directors before handing over to Iain Hodcroft who chaired the meeting.

Iain opened the meeting explaining that there were Governance issues, these were duly reported to members prior to the commencement of the AGM, particularly regarding the annual election of Officers in accordance with the “Memorandum and Articles of Association” lodged with Companies House, November 2002.

It was noted that members had not voted annually for office holders for many, many years.  Instead, custom and practice has been that directors are elected and then they themselves decide upon role, responsibility and who should become officers of the Club, based on both skills and experience.

This was particularly important as one interpretation of the ‘Articles’ would have been to declare a proposed resolution as invalid and remove it from the agenda.  In good faith with members, this had not taken place.

Members agreed to continue with a ‘flawed’ agenda.
