About the event

This year we will be holding our Annual General Meeting online via Zoom on Wednesday 17th November.

Following the success of last year's Virtual AGM, we have decided to once again host the event online. This gives us the opportunity to engage with many more members than is usually possible and we hope that you will join us.

What’s the AGM about?

We’ll be bringing you up to date with LRWT’s highlights and many successes of 2020-21. We will explain how exceptional challenges throughout the pandemic affected us and were met with innovative and imaginative solutions by the whole team.

As usual we’ll also be asking members formally to approve resolutions including our report and accounts for the past year.  We will also be electing new Members to Council to serve a three-year term, as well as re-appointing current trustees where appropriate. 

Please scroll down for the full evening's agenda and trustees to be elected and re-elected

Can I ask questions at the AGM?

Unfortunately, we will not be able to take questions during the webinar. Please email them to before 31st October with the subject line ‘AGM Questions’ and they will be answered either during the AGM or by email. 

Who is the speaker?

The meeting will be followed by a webinar presented by our guest speaker Debbie Tann, CEO of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust (HIWWT). Debbie has a first-class BSc degree in Environmental Science and MSc with distinction in Conservation from University College London. She began her career in the early 1990s as an ecologist. She has worked in a variety of roles within the Wildlife Trusts, including Head of Conservation and Deputy CEO before becoming Chief Executive at HIWWT in 2008. She has also held roles on a number of national and local boards, committees and advisory groups.

She will share an inspiring talk on The Wildlife Trusts’ vision for a Wilder Future.
