Ahead of its Annual General Meeting (AGM), PRS is encouraging Principal Voting and Voting members to vote in the upcoming Members’ Council Ballot.
Members will be voting for a Council Member to be elected, or re-elected, onto the PRS Members’ Council (previously the Board).
The Council is focused on making sure that PRS is in close touch with the views, concerns and needs of its members. Newly appointed President Michelle Escoffery will lead the Council in its focus.
Its other priorities are strategic oversight, reviewing company performance and holding the Board to account. It approves the corporate strategy, annual budget and accounts, and the appointment of CEO and Board members.
A Council Member’s term of office lasts three years. At the end of each term Council Members need to retire, but can put themselves forward for re-appointment, subject to a limit of five three-year terms in total.
The next Performing Right Society Limited AGM will take place virtually on Wednesday 19 May.
Before last year, only Principal Voting and Voting members could attend the PRS AGM. However, all members can now watch online, regardless of membership category.
The AGM provides an opportunity to hear from the chairman Nigel Elderton and the senior leadership team, ask questions and receive the annual report and accounts.
Civica Election Services (CES) will be in touch with all members eligible to vote when the Ballot opens on 1 April with all of the information needed including how to vote and canvassing materials from candidates standing in the Ballot.
