The Board of Trustees meets monthly. In addition to Annual General Meetings, Extraordinary General Meetings may be held when the Board needs to consult with the members over significant decisions.
The 11th AGM of the Islay Energy Trust was held on 2nd November 2016 at Islay High School.
Stephen Harrison, Chair, opened the meeting. George Dean, Treasurer, presented the accounts for the year ended March 2016 and confirmed that these had been independently examined and no concerns had been raised. The accounts have been lodged with OSCR and Companies House in line with the statutory requirements. A presentation illustrating the income and expenditure in detail was given.
There had been no nominations for election received prior to the AGM. Deborah Bryce and Alex Dunnachie (both of Jura) were formally elected to the IET Board. One Director (Islay McEachern) retired by rotation but had expressed his willingness to continue.
The meeting was followed by presentations covering the Islay Energy Community Benefit Fund and the Wind Turbine Report.
