All members are entitled to attend the national AGM to listen to the annual reports from the Chief Executive and national Directors on the National Executive Committee, debate and vote on motions, participate in policy discussion groups and attend volunteer support workshops. The AGM is also part of a wider members weekend which includes a private beer festival, coach trips to breweries and the opportunity to visit some of the pubs in the area. This year the Members Weekend & AGM is being held in Bournemouth from the 7th to 9th April. Conference business takes place Saturday and Sunday daytime with the Members Bar and registration desk open from Friday evening, coach trips depart on Friday and Saturday evening. You can register in advance online and simply collect your conference pack on arrival, alternatively sign up at the registration desk at the venue on the day.
