AGM 2024 – How you receive information about your AGM and National Trust elections is changing

At the 2021 AGM, members voted in support of receiving AGM and election information digitally, to help save costs, paper and carbon. That's why for 2024, your AGM booklet will be shared with you digitally rather than with your autumn magazine. From early September, your AGM booklet will be available on this page and will contain links to vote online and register your interest to attend the AGM. If you wish to vote or register your interest to attend the AGM by post, you're still able to do this upon request. You'll need to request a paper AGM booklet in advance and further information about this process will be available to members from June.
