Cochrane’s Steering Group and Senior Management Team invite you to attend the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) on Tuesday 25 October 2016. The meeting will be held at the Grand Hilton Seoul, at the 24th Cochrane Colloquium in Seoul, Republic of Korea.
Cochrane is a registered charity in the United Kingdom and must adhere to the legal requirements governing UK charities; one of these requirements is to hold an annual meeting of members. Currently, Cochrane’s members are its registered Groups (entities): Centres, Fields, Methods Groups, and Review Groups; and one person from each Group is expected to attend the AGM.
The full list of business to be conducted at this AGM-special session is set out in the Agenda together with the attachments to the Agenda.
Item 14 on the Agenda is an open discussion, during which any attendee at the AGM will have the opportunity to ask members of the Steering Group and Central Executive’s senior management any question about the organization, its strategic direction, management, and funding. To facilitate discussion, attendees are encouraged to submit their questions in advance using the designated Colloquium website form (login through Cochrane Account). Any member of the Cochrane community who is not attending the AGM or Colloquium is also invited to submit questions here and they will either be answered at the meeting, time permitting, or in writing following the meeting.
This is not your only opportunity to ask questions of Cochrane’s leadership. There will be an informal lunch meeting hosted by the Steering Group Co-Chairs Lisa Bero and Cindy Farquhar and CEO Mark Wilson from 13:00 -13:50 on 25 October, to which Colloquium attendees are cordially invited. This will provide another, more informal opportunity for engagement.
