Exclusively for RSPB members. Online only, Saturday 10 October 2020

Going virtual

To keep everyone safe from Covid19, this year, the 129th Annual General Meeting of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds will be a virtual event held online on Saturday 10 October 2020.

What to expect

The online AGM is FREE

Join us as we look back on some of our key work from the past year. Throughout the pandemic, nature has played a vital role in lifting everyone's spirits. Find out how we've been helping the nation to reconnect to nature through fun, interactive campaigns such as #BreakfastBirdwatch.

You’ll hear from our President, Miranda Krestovnikoff, Chief Executive, Beccy Speight, and our Chair and Treasurer. You’ll also have the chance to ask your questions.

It's FREE for members to attend but you will still need to register your interest to take part.

AGM agenda

The full formal AGM agenda is available to download now, with the meeting's business to include:

  • Minutes and matter arising from 2019's meeting
  • Presentation of our annual report and accounts for the year ended 31 March 2020 and adoption of the accounts
  • Election of chairs of advisory committees and council members
  • Appointment of auditors

Join us later in the day to watch three inspiring talks:

Review of our policy on gamebird shooting

In response to growing concerns about the environmental impact of some intensive forms of game bird shooting and associated land management practices, the RSPB has reviewed its policy, including a consultation phase in spring 2020 involving members and other stakeholders. We’ll announce the results of the review at the AGM with this optional session for members providing further details.

Finding new ways to take action for nature

In the summer we launched a new project to inspire more diverse audiences to take action to tackle the nature and climate crisis.
Join us as we celebrate what people have said they value during the pandemic, the actions our people are taking for nature, and how we’re helping new audiences to take their first steps to save nature.

The future of conservation

We believe that young people should have a say on the environment they'll inherit. Hear from some inspiring young naturalists as they talk about their work and share their ideas and thoughts.

Members' day 2021

We’re planning a Members’ day in the spring, with a full day of inspiring talks and another chance for you to ask your questions. Pre-register to find out more.
