Notices of Motions for the 2017 Annual General Meeting (AGM)
The Bankmed AGM will be held on Thursday, 29 June 2017. In previous years, members were asked to submit motions by the last day in February for discussion at the AGM. At the 2016 AGM, members requested that this deadline be extended to the last day of April for subsequent AGMs.
The Bankmed Scheme Rules were amended to accommodate this request and members will be asked to submit and ensure motions reach the Scheme by 30 April 2017.

Bankmed Trustee Online Voting Process
Bankmed have changed the way voting for Trustees will work in 2017. Unlike the previous AGMs, voting for Trustees this year will be taking place prior to the AGM. This means that no voting will take place at the 2017 Bankmed Medical Scheme AGM.
The management of the Bankmed election process is outsourced to independent external auditors, PwC.
As a member with a valid e-mail address, Bankmed is offering you the opportunity to submit your vote for trustees online via the online voting portal. However, we do understand that whilst members may have a valid e-mail address, some members may not have access to the internet and, as such, a Ballot Form may be requested.
The instructions for use of the portal and how to request a Ballot Form, will be issued to you during the course of April.
