Annual General Meeting
Our Annual General Meeting is held in June. All residents of Werrington are invited to attend this. Those aged 18 and over and living in the area can attend and vote at the meeting. Anyone from outside the area can attend and speak but not vote. During the meeting Members of the Council are elected to serve a two year term (five are elected annually). The Co-opted members (up to 6) are appointed at Council Meetings throughout the year and not at the Annual General Meeting. All of the officers and representatives of our Council are appointed at the first post-AGM Full Council meeting and not at the AGM.
Our next AGM will take place on Tuesday 4th June 2019 at Werrington Village Centre.
Please come and support your local Council.
