BGS Annual General Meeting 2020

The British Grassland Society 76th Annual General Meeting

To be held online, 7:00pm BST, Wednesday 1st July 2020

BGS activities have been significantly impacted by the ongoing situation with COVID-19.  The summer meeting, due to be held in Northern Ireland later this month, will now take place next summer.  However, an important element of the summer meeting is the BGS Annual General Meeting.

Because of the current social distancing measures it will not be possible to hold a face to face AGM this year.  The BGS team have been investigating possible alternatives and now plan to hold the meeting online using Microsoft Teams.

To manage the process as smoothly as possible members must register with the BGS office to attend the online AGM. Following registration, a meeting link will be issued along with the appropriate documents.

For BGS members the process will be as follows:

  1. To join the 76th BGS Annual General Meeting please email by Friday 26th June 2020 to request a meeting link.
  2. Following registration, you will be sent the meeting link along with relevant documents on Monday 29th June 2020.  This information will include further guidance on how to use the link.
  3. Using the meeting link that will be issued please join the meeting on Wednesday 1st July at 7:00pm BST.  It is recommended that you aim to join the meeting 5 – 10 minutes before the designated start time to allow for any issues that may occur with connections.
