The APM is a meeting for eligible performers.  This means performers who are registered with PPL and who have received any UK or international performer payment from PPL during either or both of the two previous financial years (so during 2017 and/or 2018, for the purposes of this year’s APM).  If you are not sure that this applies to you, please call PPL’s Member Services team on 020 7534 1234 or email (including your PPL ID).

Online Voting

Online voting for the APM Performer Director elections has now closed.

On PPL’s behalf, Electoral Reform Services Ltd – now part of the Civica Group and trading as Civica Election Services or CES – has administered the online voting process sending online voting details to Eligible Performers (or, if they have one, the representative they have designated to manage their PPL account).

Online voting closed at 3pm on Friday 22 November 2019. Eligible Performers who have not already voted will now only be able to cast their votes at the APM itself.

Election Candidates

At each year’s APM, one third of PPL’s Performer Directors must retire by rotation and an election must be held. The retiring directors may stand for re-election, and Eligible Performers may also nominate additional election candidates.

This year, Roxanne de Bastion and David Stopps are the two Performer Directors retiring by rotation and both are standing for re-election in accordance with PPL’s constitutional rules. No other candidate nominations were received by the 28 October 2019 deadline.

Under PPL’s constitutional rules, Eligible Performers are therefore voting on whether to re-elect each of these two Performer Directors, or to leave one or both positions vacant. The two candidates have each provided an Election Statement, which you can read here.
