The AGM is usually held in May or June at Blagdon Hall, with the kind permission of Lord Ridley. AGM business usually includes the appointment of the Officers and Committee Members; the Chairmen of the Committees provide an update of activity and progress in the past year, and the annual accounts are presented (after examination by an independent auditor). The AGM is followed by an annual lecture given by a notable speaker, and then a buffet is served. All Members are invited to the AGM.
