What is the AGM?
An AGM (or Annual General Meeting) is the meeting of the members of an organisation. Each year we invite eligible members to vote and help shape the future of your Society.
What do I get to vote on?
It's a great opportunity to have your say and vote on who the board members are and how the Society is run. If you attend the meeting itself on Thursday 12 April, you can voice your thoughts and ask the Board any questions you may have.

Our online members' forum, TalkingPoint, now has more than 2,700 actively engaged members. This is your chance to tell us what really matters to you, knowledge we then use to make our products and services even better. Over two thirds of registered members actively took part in research over the last three months alone, helping the Society to better understand the needs of our members.[Read more]
The power of Parkrun
In 2017, we launched our partnership with parkrun. Together, we have been helping people engage with their local community throughout the UK and we’re proud to say we’ve already enjoyed some exciting achievements including:
In September 2017, we asked parkrunners to bring along a friend to their local parkrun to support community togetherness.
We achieved a record-breaking total participation across the month.[Read more]
Raising money for Samaritans
We’ve been listening to the views of our members and colleagues, and from 2018 we're delighted to announce that Samaritans has been chosen as our new charity partner. Whatever you’re going through, Samaritans provides a safe space to talk.
Over the next two years we are aiming to raise £250,000 which will go towards helping those who are in emotional distress or are struggling to cope.
