RNLI Annual General Meeting 2022

The RNLI Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on Thursday 14 July at 2pm at the Leonardo Royal Hotel London Tower Bridge.

After 2 years of hosting the Annual General Meeting (AGM) virtually, we’re thrilled to be inviting you to join us in person at the Leonardo Royal Hotel London Tower Bridge, 45 Prescot St, London E1 8GP (the same venue as in 2019) on Thursday 14 July 2022.

While we hope that this is welcome news to most of our Governors, we appreciate that some may have found attending the AGM virtually more accessible. Unfortunately, our Royal Charter and Bye-Laws do not contain any provisions for the business of the meeting to be conducted virtually.

For the past 2 years, in light of the covid-19 pandemic and the restrictions on events, the Charity Commission has granted us special permission to hold the event virtually, pursuant to Section 105 of the Charities Act 2011.

As we find ourselves moving out of these restrictions, we no longer meet the requirements for this permission. This, coupled with our eagerness to see you all in person once again, has led us to the decision to hold the event in-person in order to conduct the business of the meeting and comply with our Bye-Laws.

RSVPs for the AGM 2022 closed on 30 June. If you still wish to attend, please email [email protected] and the team will try their best to accommodate you at the event.

For those of you who can’t make it to London, we have made provisions for the AGM to be streamed online, however, online viewing will not be to the same level it has been for the last two years.

In line with our Bye-Laws, the online stream will only allow you to watch the meeting, you will not be able to vote or ask questions if you join us online.

To watch online, simply visit rnliagm2022.com at 2pm and the stream will be available to watch.

If the required quorum is not reached at the AGM, the meeting will be adjourned to 2pm Thursday 28 July 2022 at the RNLI College, Poole.

If this is the case, RSVP information will be available on this webpage on the 15 July 2022.

The Charity Report will be recorded and made available to watch back on this page a week after the AGM.
