Arthritis Care’s 2016 AGM took place on Saturday 10 September at the Brooks Building of Manchester Metropolitan University. The AGM took place as part of the first Living Well with Arthritis: a happier, healthier you event.
Members heard reports about our work in the last year from the Chair, Gordon Anderson; Treasurer, Neil Spence; and Chief Executive, Judi Rhys.

Over 400 proxy votes were cast in advance of the meeting and, combined with votes on the day, this meant that all the resolutions put to members were passed. The resolutions were as follows:

Resolution 2: To receive the annual report and accounts of Arthritis Care for the year ended 31 December 2015.
