How to participate/join the meeting

As a result of continuing travel restrictions, and to provide the opportunity for members from all Divisions to attend, the Institute’s Council has decided that this year’s AGM will be held as a virtual event via the AGM@Convene portal.

This virtual meeting will give you the opportunity to participate online, using your smartphone, tablet or computer. To do this you will need to visit the Institute’s meeting set up on the AGM@Convene portal that you can access here.

From there, you will be able to register your account, appoint a proxy, ask questions prior to the meeting and view a live webcast of the meeting.

If you prefer to receive a printable copy of the proxy form, or a hard copy of any of the documents, please email or call +44 (0) 20 7612 7002. Please be aware that to be valid, all completed proxy forms must be received by the Secretary by 08.00 hrs (BST) on Tuesday, 19 October 2021. After this time, you will not be able to appoint a proxy and, if you wish to vote on the resolutions, must join the virtual meeting.
