Annual General Meeting

Annual General Meeting

The 45th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the SAJC originally scheduled for 25 November was held on Tuesday 15 December 2020 at 5.00pm, after being deferred in accordance with Clause 25.1 of the Constitution due to the COVID restrictions imposed by government.

Board Election

Counting of the votes received as part of the 2020 annual election of Members’ Representatives to the SAJC Board was completed on 14 December by the returning officers.

There were seven (7) candidates for four (4) positions. The total number of valid ballot papers received was 444.  Five ballot papers were declared invalid by the election scrutineers.


The outcome of the vote is as follows:

Candidate Votes Received Status
Christine Simpson 318 ELECTED *
Judith Jones 302 ELECTED
John Girvan 278 ELECTED
Ron Pratt 259 ELECTED *
Shannen Graham 256
David Spear 235
Geoff Higgins 108

*Subject to regulatory approvals


The returning officers reported the results to the annual general meeting this evening where the successful candidates were John Girvan and Judith Jones (sitting Board members) and Ron Pratt and Christine Simpson (new directors who have previous experience on the Board). The experience these four individuals will bring to the Board is outstanding and we very much look forward to working with them.


Grant Mayer, CEO, would like to thank retiring Board members Adam Glenn and Paul Kristoris for their contribution to the Board and also thank all candidates who nominated in the election this year.
