Voting and Proxies
Voting is in person at the AGM. If you are not able to attend the AGM, and you are a Full member, you can nominate someone to vote in your place. This is done through completion of the Proxy Form included in the Member’s Pack. Completed proxy forms must be delivered to the Institute office, 84 Merrion Square, Dublin 2 not later than 5pm on Sunday 28th January 2018. Only original forms (no photocopies/scans) may be used to appoint a proxy. Faxed or emailed proxies are not permitted. The above is in line with the Institute’s Memorandum and Articles (section 31 and 32). If the proxy form has been misplaced, one can be re-issued by emailing Turn on Javascript!
 
Responsibilities
Nominees are reminded that, if elected, they become Directors of the PRII with resulting responsibilities under the Companies Act. They should satisfy themselves as to whether there are any existing or potential conflicts of interest that may arise, and declare them as appropriate.
