THE FUNDS 1ST ANNUAL FEEDBACK MEETING TO BE HELD ON THE 24TH OF FEBRUARY 2017
1.1 A circular dated 3 October 2016 was sent to stakeholders of the Fund (members, pensioners and all associated municipalities) notifying them of the proposed amendments to the election process for representation to the Committee of Management (Board of Trustees) and the postponement of the November 2016 Annual General Meeting. For a copy of the circular, please visit: www.njmpf.co.za or request from the NJMPF’s Client Services Centre on 031 279 5300.
1.2 The Financial Services Board (FSB) requires that a voting method be adopted which allows each member to cast their ballot and vote directly for members onto the Board of Trustees, rather than the present system of being elected through the General Committee at the Annual General Meeting.
