2022 Annual General Meeting – Voting Results


Here are the results of the postal and email ballot from those members who have replied by 28 May 2022, the closure date.   


The items on the voting slip related to the following:  

Item 1: Accepting minutes of 2021 AGM sent out by Jean Ellis on 23/04/2022 

Item 2: Accepting 2021 financial statements from Treasurer, Caroline Warren.  

Item 3: Confirm the appointment of Melanie Cambridge as next Chairman


As returning officer here are the results:

Item 1: Accepting minutes of 2021 AGM sent out by Jean Ellis on 23/04/2022   - 82 positive votes

Item 2: Accepting 2021 financial statements from Treasurer, Caroline Warren  - 82 positive votes

Item 3: Confirm the appointment of Melanie Cambridge as next Chairman.       - 80 positive votes; 2 negative votes     

We have a vote that well exceeds the quorum requirement and therefore directs Sinclair Webster, current Chairman and the Committee to act upon the results.  This puts Melanie Cambridge in the chair.


The voting slips paperwork are archived in a hard file including printed email slips (39) and through the letter box slips, 41 posted and 2 hand delivered, which will all be kept for reference.

Guildford Art Society began in 1923 and has a current membership of 223 artists practising and non-practising, amateur and professional. The Society has a very interesting history. If you would like to know more then click here for an article on this. We are an open and social as well as creative organisation. You can also look at our recent history page under the News page.

We were established to encourage the visual arts, painting, sculpture and crafts. To that end the Committee arranges physical and on-line demonstrations, outdoor painting days, workshops and exhibitions. Members also get together informally and organise their own events, social and craft related in their own groups.

The purpose of this open website is to present to the general public and our members, our news, the monthly GAS Pipeline newsletter, information about events, to show members' artworks in our galleries and give guidance on making contact with us. Here is a link to our Constitution if you are interested in the formal background.

GDPR and Privacy Policy  

New regulations have come into effect across Europe to protect your personal data – commonly called GDPR.  They follow the existing GDP laws in the UK and establish more extensive regulations for processing personal data. Brexit may change this.


The GAS committee have devised a Privacy Policy to align with the new requirements. This is available for you to read when you click here.  Please be assured that the Committee stores your identity data carefully and will not share it with third parties without your consent.
