The first ever AGM of Secret Projects Community Benefit Society (SPCBS) was held on Wednesday 30th June 2021 via Zoom. We were delighted to have 25 Shareholders attending the meeting in person, with a further 23 Shareholders represented via proxy.
Opened and chaired by Secret Projects CEO, Fritha Mason, presentations were given by:
Banke Ajayi, Financial Director of SPCBS
Fritha Mason, CEO of SPCBS
Sumathi Thyagarajan, Acting Director of Social Power India (SPI)
Shin Rumani, Marketing Manager of SPI
Margaret Ring, Communications Manager of SPCBS
The main theme of the meeting naturally revolved around the affects that COVID-19 has had on the business and Banke Ajayi was able to provide a positive report about how the Society has fared financially over the last year. She stated that we had survived the global pandemic, which is a good base from which to grow over the next few years.
As this was our first AGM, the team were excited to present and engage with Shareholders and were delighted with how the meeting progressed and the positive comments received from people. We would like to express gratitude to our Shareholders for their continued support and positive involvement in Secret Projects Community Benefit Society and we look forward to our second year as a Community Benefit Society and empowering women in India through the training and the making and selling of clothing and homeware.
