PRS AGM and Directors' Ballot
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we postponed our AGM, originally due to be held on 19 May, and our Directors’ Ballot.
We have now decided, subject to the government’s advice closer to the time, to hold our AGM in our King’s Cross office on Tuesday 18 August.
What is the AGM?
Our AGM is a yearly event that gives you the chance to see how PRS is performing. Under PRS’ Articles of Association we’re required to hold one every year and we use it as an opportunity for you to hear from our Executive Leadership Team, and ask them questions.
If you’re eligible to come along to the AGM, you’ll also receive our annual accounts and can vote to elect (or re-elect) our Board directors and auditors.
Who can attend?
If you’re a Voting or Principal Voting member (if you’re not sure, check the top of your monthly newsletter) you can attend in person. If you’re not able to attend, or you’re not a Voting or Principal Voting member, don’t worry, we live stream the whole event to all members, so you won’t miss out.
What is the PRS Board?
The Board is our governing body. It is made up of 25 directors:
- 11 writers
- 11 publishers
- Two external directors (who bring valuable expertise from outside of the music industry)
- One executive director (our Chief Executive)
Our Board members are directors of the Performing Right Society Ltd and have legal duties under the Companies Act 2006. A director’s term of office lasts for three years. At the end of each term directors may stand for re-appointment.
The deadline to stand and nominate others to stand in the Directors’ Ballot has now passed.
