MSF UK Association annual general meeting (AGM)

Throughout the year the MSF UK Association arranges events and meetings to facilitate thinking, discussion and decision-making.

The key events are:

  • The Annual General Meeting
  • Board Meetings
  • Associative Debates

What is the annual general meeting?

The annual general meeting (AGM) is the heart of MSF UK's internal democracy and the social event of the year.

The Annual General meeting is held once a year in May or June. Association members will be informed at least three weeks before the meeting. This year the AGM will take place on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June 2019 in London.

What happens at the Annual General meeting?

  • The Association members approve the President’s report (‘Rapport Morale’) – an overview of the year’s activities and the funds MSF UK received and spent (four weeks before the AGM, members have access to the financial accounts).
  • Candidate Board members present themselves to the Association members at the AGM. Voting members vote for the candidate(s) of their choice.
  • Association members can propose motions (action to be taken) at the AGM. These are debated and voted on by members entitled to vote.
  • A quorum of 10 percent is required to approve motions. Voting members who cannot attend the AGM can vote by proxy.
