The AGM is where in addition to the mandatory business of an Annual General Meeting (AGM), CAMRA’s volunteer National Executive is elected: and Conference is where campaigning policy is democratically formed and updated by members via debate and voting. Also featured are award presentations and fringe activities along with a Members’ Bar at the venue and organised brewery trips.
This year the event was due to take place at Sheffield City Hall on the weekend of 16th to 18th April. Unfortunately whilst the Coronavirus restrictions are expected to be lifted enough to enjoy some beer garden action, this kind of event is still out of the question.
So, its all going online, even the members bar!
The Conference will take place in the daytime on Saturday 16th April then afterwards you can relax in the virtual members bar with a “Highlights of Sheffield” Beer Box and an online tasting with the brewers. To register for the conference log in as a member at camra.org.uk.
The Sheffield beer box and the live online tasting event is available to anyone, not just members, and can can be ordered here.
The box contains six beers sourced from the Sheffield & District CAMRA branch area, the brewers represented are Neepsend, Kelham Island, Intrepid, Triple Point, Bradfield and Abbeydale.
