If you were not one of the c400 members that attended our AGM in London on Saturday, this is what you missed…
If you weren’t able to attend (perhaps you were watching the rugby?), why not put next year’s AGM in your diary – 10 October 2020. I hope to see you there.
Am not sure why live streaming was discontinued - I will check. It might have been cost...
It was mentioned to me from the RSPB it was because not enough members watched the live webcam. I had suggested to on this forum a few years ago, just as the National Trust used to do, but sadly no more, that I would like to see the RSPB have there Annual General Meeting in different parts of the UK every year. The National Trust on 2 occasions had there AGM in Newcastle Upon Tyne close to where I live and I was able to attend on those 2 occasions. I don’t think that the RSPB’s Annual General Meeting should always be London based, as member further a North have further to travel. Also I would like to see members be able to propose motions to be proposed and second along with a reasonable amount of signatures for a motion to be discussed at the RSPB Annual General Meeting. The National Trusts AGM does allow motions that members propose as long as there are at least 50 National Trust Members support that motion. At the present time the Chairman of the RSPB has to give permission for a motion to be allowed. That is not democracy. And I have yet to a motion allowed at the RSPB’s Annual General Meeting happen in all the years I’ve been a member of the RSPB since the early 1970’s.
