If you can help us then we would greatly appreciate your attendance at the AGM in Bradford, however, scanning the Articles there is another way in which we can achieve quorum on pertinent votes such as the approval of auditors and accounts. That is by proxy votes, where a member chooses to authorise their proxy vote to another person who is actually able to attend.
