Like any other organisation or company, the Council needs to hold an annual meeting to carry out those things that only need doing once a year. These include:
- Electing a Chairman
- Electing a Vice-Chairman (if the council wants to have one)
- Appointing committees
- Appointing representatives to other bodies (e.g. the Parish Hall Committee, or School Governing Bodies)
- Agreeing to subscribe to such bodies as the County Association of Local Councils
- Reviewing policy documents such as risk assessment, Standing Orders, Financial Regulations, etc.
The Storrington & Sullington Annual Parish Council meetings are typically held on the last Wednesday each May.
