Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Every year we invite members to take part in our Annual General Meeting (AGM). It gives our members the opportunity to have their say and vote on a range of matters.

As a mutual building society, it is vital to remember that we are owned by our members – and every member has a right to have their say. Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is your opportunity to help to determine the future of Newcastle Building Society.

Due to the situation with Covid-19, we have taken the decision to hold this year’s AGM without external members in attendance (with staff and directors who are members forming the required minimum number for the meeting to take place). Decisions like this have to be made several months before the actual meeting. In making this decision the safety of members, staff and directors has been our priority.

The AGM will be held on 28th April 2021 at our Principal Office at Cobalt Business Park in North Tyneside. In view of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are instructing members not to attend the AGM in person this year, but if this changes (which we do not expect) details will be shown on this web page.

Online Members’ Forum

This year, we offered members the opportunity to attend online events to hear all about how the Society performed in 2020, and to take part in a question and answer panel with our leadership team ahead of our AGM.

2020 has been a year unlike any other, but in many ways has served to underline the importance of our purpose, to connect our communities with a better financial future. Through this forum, we shared how we have achieved this, the positive impact we have had on our communities and our financial performance. Normally, we would invite you to our AGM in person. However, due to the pandemic, it has been necessary to instruct members not to attend this year's AGM.

We will add a list of the questions submitted by our members, and our responses, to this web page in due course, following our Annual General Meeting on 28th April.
