Annual General Meeting 2020

Saturday 5 September, at 11am

The official venue for the meeting will be our London offices at 66 Offley Road, London SW9 0LS. However, Global Justice Now’s council has decided to ask all members to join virtually this year using the video-conferencing programme Zoom. Zoom meetings are primarily accessed via a computer, smartphone or tablet, but it is also possible to join using a conventional phone, albeit without the same functionality.

In order to join, you needed to have registered in advance, by 2 September.

The deadline for appointing a proxy to vote on your behalf has also now passed.

Resolutions

This year there are several resolutions from council (see agenda below). The wording and rationale for these can be found in the resolutions document, which you can download from the bottom of this page. Emergency resolutions can be submitted up until 48 hours before the event, but must relate to events taking place after the deadline for ordinary resolutions (17 July).

Email your resolution to James O'Nions at james.onions@globaljustice.org.uk or send it by post to Global Justice Now, 66 Offley Road, London SW9 0LS.
