The Council of Management met on 9 April and approved the 2018 trustees’ annual report and annual accounts. These reports will now be circulated to the members of the charity and presented at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 11 June. They will show that Epilepsy Action enjoyed another very successful year – having contact with more than 2 million people and raising more than 3.7 million pounds.
This year’s elections to the Council of Management are about to start. During every election it’s not possible for people to become members of the charity. The Council confirmed that entry to membership of the charity will be closed this year from 13 May to 11 June 2019.
At the beginning of the meeting, the trustees received their annual presentation about the performance of the charity’s investments from Steve Scott representing Brewin Dolphin Securities Limited, investment managers. The Council was pleased to note that the charity’s investments had once again performed well against their benchmark target over the previous year and continued to provide a very healthy income that is used to fund the charity’s services.
The next meeting of the Council is scheduled to take place on 14 May 2019.
