Registration open to attend the virtual British Canoeing AGM
British Canoeing will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on the evening of Tuesday 12 March 2024. Immediately following the AGM, members are invited to join us to find out more about our re-brand to Paddle UK.
In line with our Environmental Sustainability Strategy, this year’s British Canoeing AGM will be a fully virtual meeting, hosted on Zoom and using the LUMI Voting Platform.
The AGM is a formal meeting of British Canoeing members, and provides an opportunity to review the work of the organisation over the past 12 months, as well as noting current progress against the strategic plan Stronger Together.
The meeting will start at 19:00 and all members are welcome to attend.
Further details on registration for the AGM and voting arrangements are provided below.
