2021 DAPTC Annual General Meeting

The 2021 DAPTC AGM will be held online as last year and is scheduled for Saturday 13th November 2021 at 10:00am. DAPTC's Executive Committee agreed that under the current circumstances it would be far easier for all concerned to stage the AGM online following positive feedback in 2020. 2020 AGM DELEGATE FEEDBACK

We hope to have a speaker for the opening session followed by the normal AGM business. If your council have submitted a motion, it is important that a representative attends to make a short statement in support of the motion. If this is a joint motion from members, please ensure the member councillors agree who will speak to the motion.

2021 AGM Motion Submissions:

The process for submitting motions will be the same as in previous years and the editable word template preferred by National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is below.

Motions submitted will be reviewed briefly by the DAPTC Executive Committee at the start of October ahead of circulation amongst members ahead of the AGM in November. The review is conducted primarily to ensure any similar motions are merged or identify any motions previously received. Once the AGM is concluded the motions are where required, will be forward to NALC's Policy Committee to review.

Phase 2 of the Constitution Review is about the Area Committee Structure. The Executive Committee will review members feedback on how the existing structure is working early in 2021. The initial look at the survey results resulted in the committee recommending we try to breath life into the existing structure rather than make any significant changes.
