G. In accordance with the Articles of Association of the Company: To accept the nominations of the Special Interest Group Committees and appoint the Chairs of the Special Interest Groups of the Charity as follows:
H. To receive the Treasurer’s Report for the financial year ended 31 December 2020, summary Budget for the current year ending 31 December 2021 and summary budget for financial year ending 31 December 2022.
I. To approve the increase in subscription fees by 2.0% for 2022
This reflects the discussion at the ucisa AGM in 2019 where a rise of 12.5% in 2020 and 2021 was approved as part of a phased approach with an anticipated inflationary increase year on year thereafter. This recognised the fact that subscription fees had been held constant since 2009. It was noted at the 2019 AGM that in real terms, based on annual inflation figures from the ONS, over the last 10 years the value of subscription income for ucisa had fallen by some 45%, and that this was unsustainable.
