The 29th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of NCT was held on Saturday 4 November 2017 as part of our first ever National Celebration Day, taking place at Central Hall, Westminster.

The event, attended by more than 250 NCT staff, volunteers, practitioners and members, was the perfect opportunity to network, share knowledge and celebrate the many achievements we’ve seen in the organisation over the last year.

During our AGM we found out the election results and welcomed Seána Talbot as NCT President and Sarah Brown and Elaine Lambe as Trustees. Some great questions were put to the Board by members following the challenges of the past year. The Board had also received a number of written questions from members who were unable to attend. Due to timings we were unable to discuss three questions and committed to providing responses shortly afterwards. Responses to these questions will be made available on Babble by the end of this week.

After debate the resolutions to accept the minutes of the 28th AGM and the Annual Report and Accounts for 2016-17 were accepted. A special resolution to amend the Articles received a clear majority but not the 75% needed to pass, and was therefore not accepted.

We’d like to thank all candidates who stood in this year’s Trustee and President elections and everyone who took part in this year’s AGM. With a very special thanks to our outgoing trustee, Elgan Owen who joined the board in March 2017.
