SAIFCharter wants you

SAIFCharter’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday 21 September at the Royal Lancaster London. John Byrne, SAIFCharter Secretary, speaks to SAIFInsight about the AGM, including elections and hearing members’ views.

“There will be two SAIFCharter Executive positions up for election this year; I have served my three-year term and in addition our Chairman Julian Walker has completed his term of office, having served two three-year terms. I am pleased to confirm I will be standing for re-election and can announce the process is now open for any other eligible candidates to put themselves forward.

“Any member intending to seek election should contact me to provide their written nomination. The deadline for intimating an interest is Friday 9 August, six weeks in advance of the AGM, which allows time for SAIFCharter to publicise candidates’ interest in advance of the vote.”

Your views

One of the criteria to stand for election to the SAIFCharter Executive is involvement in one of the SAIFCharter working groups, each of which focuses on a different area of Golden Charter’s business and the funeral planning profession.

The groups meet three to four times a year and are pivotal in influencing the future direction of both Golden Charter and SAIFCharter. The success of the groups depend on having views and input from a range of independent funeral director businesses, which is representative of the wider SAIFCharter network. Get in touch with one of your colleagues on a working group today to discuss the issues and opportunities affecting your business, and make sure your voice is heard.

Alternatively, consider becoming a working group member in your own right. SAIFCharter is always looking for new candidates and would love to extend an invitation to potential new members to go along to a meeting, to learn more about the groups and understand whether you would like to get involved.

For more information on the working groups, visit the SAIFCharter site or email the Secretary.
