Due to the current situation we are no longer able to host our next Member Meeting in person.

The LINX109 member meeting and AGM will take place as a virtual meeting on Wednesday 6th May 2020 starting at 2pm.

Annual General Meeting

The AGM will commence at 2:30pm prompt.

Please note this meeting will include constitutional voting, therefore we ask as many of you as possible to take advantage of our online voting when it becomes available. Again, more details of this will be sent to you nearer the time and we will also send further reminders regarding voting.

LINX109 Feedback

We encourage all attendees to give their feedback after attending the event. During the afternoon a link will be posted to the LINX109 survey. Attendees who complete the form will be entered into a prize draw for one of four £25 Amazon vouchers.

Board Elections 

An election for three seats on the LINX Board will be held on 6th May 2020 following the Annual General Meeting. Two seats are vacant due to two Board members retiring by rotation and one from a Board member resignation. The appointment to replace the board seat vacated by resignation will be for two years (the balance of Simon Woodhead’s term of office, as per Article 44), and will be allocated to the candidate with the least number of votes out of the three candidates with the highest votes.

Further details on the election can be found here.

Virtual Social

LINX understand how important members consider the networking opportunities that come with our member meetings. With more and more conferences being staged online we didn’t want to lose that aspect of our events which is why we have collaborated with DJs in Tech to organise a special online social to go with the upcoming LINX109 virtual member meeting.

The virtual social will be broadcast by live stream on YouTube from 16.15 BST on Wednesday 6th May via the following link:
