Your vote makes a difference
When you open most of our mortgage and savings accounts (including Share Plan accounts) you become a member – and owner – of our society; it belongs to you. That’s one of the things that makes us different. We have you, not external shareholders, at the heart of everything we do and we never forget that.
We’re accountable to you which is why, if you’re eligible, you get to vote on key decisions including the election and re-election for the directors that run the Society on your behalf.
You are entitled to vote if you have:
- At least £100 in your share savings account(s) at the end of the previous financial year (31st December) and have continued to have a share account up to the voting date, which will be included in your AGM information; or
- At least £100 owing on your mortgage at the end of the previous financial year (31st December) and at the voting date;
- You are at least 18; and
- You are the sole or first named account holder on a joint account, which will be included in your AGM information.
