RSGB Board changes AGM arrangements

| March 20, 2020

In response to the government’s latest Covid-19 recommendations, the RSGB Board has changed the arrangements for the Society’s AGM due to take place on the 25th of April.

The physical meeting in Birmingham will not take place, and the information that would have been made available at the AGM will now be made available online.

The Resolutions to be voted on are on our website at where you will also find links to the Board candidate statements and to cast your vote. You should continue to vote online as normal.

The accounts will be published on the 1st of April on the AGM web page.

As you will not be able to vote in person at the AGM, please remember to vote online by 9am on Thursday the 23rd of April. If you do not have the facility to vote online, you can request a postal vote by contacting RSGB HQ. Postal votes must be returned to Civica Election Services, in the envelope provided, to arrive there no later than 9am on Thursday the 23rd of April. Please bear in mind that postal services may well be delayed so leave plenty of time if you need to vote in this way.

Results of the voting will be published on the RSGB website and social media channels on Saturday the 25th of April.

Trophy winners will be announced on the RSGB website and social media channels on Saturday the 25th of April. Arrangements to present the trophies in person will be made later.

We appreciate that the AGM is an important date in the RSGB calendar and some Members have attended it regularly for many years. But the Board cannot ignore the current health climate and put Members, staff and volunteers at risk by continuing with the AGM as intended.

Every effort will be made to hold the AGM as usual in 2021.
