AGM 2017

Our Annual General Meeting is a great opportunity for members to hear about our many activities and achievements over the past 12 months and our next steps.

What's the AGM about?

At our Annual General Meeting we carry out the formal business set out in our governing document, the Articles of Association.

It will be a great opportunity to hear from Steve Ford, our Chief Executive, and Mark Goodridge, Chair of the Board of Trustees, about our recent achievements, our ambitious plans and the part you play.

There'll also be more information about our annual accounts, as well as the results of our trustee elections in Scotland, England and Wales.
