Medihelp members may nominate principal members of Medihelp by submitting a nomination before Friday, 31 March 2017 at 16:00. A trustee whose term of office expires may again be nominated for election to the Board of Trustees.
Members can formally submit matters for consideration by the AGM. Motions must provide a detailed discussion of the matter, fully documenting and motivating the change proposed and must be seconded. Motions for the 2017 AGM must reach Medihelp by no later than 31 March 2017 at 16:00.

During the subsequent Board meeting following the AGM, Mr Klopper was once again elected Chairman and Mr Visser Vice-Chairman of the Medihelp Board of Trustees by the Board. We congratulate them and wish them everything of the very best for their next three-year term of office.
- Rule amendment as proposed by the Board of Trustees (rule 27)
The amendment of rule 27 as proposed by the Board of Trustees was approved. The rule deals with the submission of motions by members to be presented to the AGM, and was amended to state that such motions must be seconded by another member. The word “proposals” was also deleted because it is deemed to have the same meaning as “motion” within the context of matters to be voted on at an AGM. Furthermore, all items to be included in the notice for the AGM are now listed separately, making it less complicated.
- Rule amendment as proposed by the Board of Trustees (rule 28.2)
The amendment of rule 28 as proposed by the Board of Trustees was also approved. As in the case of the amendment of rule 27, the word “proposals” was deleted because it is deemed to have the same meaning as “motion” within the context of matters to be voted on at a Special General Meeting.
- Motion as proposed by a member (rule 10.8)
The motion proposed by a member with regard to the amendment of rule 10.8 was not approved.
- Motion as proposed by a member (rule 31)
The motion proposed by a member with regard to the amendment of rule 31 was not approved.
