Due to guidance from the Irish Government on public gatherings, the JRA 2022 Annual General Meeting (the “AGM” and/or the “Meeting”) will be held by virtual means.
Please find formal notice of the AGM which will be held virtually (Zoom) on June 8th at 8pm. https://jra.me/agm2022/
Ordinary Business 1. To receive the Chairman’s Annual Report
2. To receive the Directors’ Report and Financial Statements for 31st December 2020 including Treasurer’s address.
3. To re-appoint those directors retiring by rotation in accordance with the Articles of Association and to ratify the appointment those directors appointed since the last Annual General meeting.
4. To approve (by special resolution) the adoption of a new constitution of the Company. Please note that the Board is proposing the adoption of a new constitution of the Company to allow the Company to hold virtual general meetings (i.e. AGMs and EGMs). Please note, that while the Company has held the last number of AGMs virtually, this was enabled under emergency legislation enacted in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. While this legislation remains in force until 30 June 2022, and covers the current AGM, it is expected that these emergency measures will be rescinded in the near future. As such, and to ensure that all members can continue to participate fully in future meetings (e.g. due to reduced mobility), it is proposed that the Company change its constitution to allow general meetings to be held by virtual means following the end of the emergency measures.
5. To approve by ordinary resolution, on an advisory and non-binding basis, the commencement of preparatory measures to ready the Company for winding up. Please note that due to the reducing amount of community support, in particular an unwillingness of estate residence to take on Board membership with the Company, it is proposed that the Company be ultimately wound up and all activities of the Johnstown Residence Association be ceased. In order to gauge support for this proposal it is proposed that members consider the matter before formal measures are commenced. Should the membership approve this resolution the Board will investigate the actions required to bring about the cessation of the Company via a members’ voluntary winding up. The Board will also take a positive vote on this item as a mandate to undertake preparatory actions required to ready the Company for dissolution (e.g. non-collection of 2023 subscriptions and the cancelation of contracts). Please further note that without enhanced levels of community support the current Board will not be able to continue to run the Company.
All members attending the AGM will have the opportunity to vote on the relevant resolutions through the virtual meeting platform and, like previous years, members unable to attend the Meeting will be able to cast their votes via the appointment of a proxy, see notes below.
Due to the non-physical nature of the AGM, members are requested to submit any questions relevant to the AGM or audited accounts in advance of the Meeting. Please submit any questions you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org before 5pm on Friday 3rd June 2022.
Members will also have the ability to submit questions during the AGM through the virtual meeting platform. However please note that, like physical meetings, it may not be possible to address every question that is submitted.
