AMP / APCM 2020 Protocol

With regard to the Annual Meeting of Parishioners and St Mary’s Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) 2020 which will be held in church at 7:30pm on Wednesday 14th October the PCC has resolved the following protocol:

  • The meetings will be held with the necessary social distancing in place.
  • All attendees need to register on entry.
  • There will also be the option to attend on Zoom however all attendees need to register their intention to attend by emailing pccsecretary@stmarysnantwich.org.uk before 4pm on the day of the meeting to receive the joining instructions and for the names of attendees to be noted.
  • Only those on the Electoral Roll can vote at the APCM.
  • In the case of a vote being required a show of hands will usually be sufficient.
  • If a “secret” ballot is required for any reason you will be asked to immediately email pccsecretary@stmarysnantwich.org.uk from your recognised email address (as used to register your attendance). Your electronic vote will be confidential to the PCC secretary only.
  • It is intended that the outcome of a “secret” ballot will be made known before the end of the meeting.
  • In the case of any Wi-Fi failure, individual or in church, the meeting will continue with those attendees available in church or still online.

If anyone wishes to have a trial Zoom meeting before then please contact Beth on pccsecretary@stmarysnantwich.org.uk
