Shareholders must, at all times, act in the interests of Eastlight and for the benefit of the community as guardians of the objectives of Eastlight.
Shareholders formally carry out their role through their involvement at Annual and Special General Meetings where they receive performance information, ask questions and vote on formal resolutions.
Typical activities at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) include:
- Receiving an annual report on the performance of Eastlight and our community empowerment work
- The appointment of the auditors
- The election of Board members
Many shareholders become involved with Eastlight in other ways – from being a member of our Customer Influence Committee or the Board, to helping develop new ways of working, sitting on procurement panels or just providing feedback.
