SHNH AGM 30 June 2022 at 16:00 BST on Zoom

July 30, 2022 04:00pm - 06:00pm

Dear Member,

SHNH President
Gina Douglas Hon FLS

We look forward to meeting you at our virtual Annual General Meeting on 30 June (4.00 pm London time / 16:00 BST); and extend a special welcome to our new members and international members.

We have much to celebrate in 2022 as we recently held our first online conference, ‘Pioneering Naturalists: Champions of Conservation and Environmental Engagement’, where we welcomed participants from around the world; we recently announced our Awards and Medals; Archives of Natural History is approaching its 50th volume in 2023; and the new Council structure is working extremely well.

The official business of the AGM will be followed by a short break. The second half will see the presentation of the Society’s Awards and the giving of short talks by some of our Award winners. The Agenda for the AGM, and all the supporting documents including the list of nominees to Council portfolios, are available on the Society’s website. We have sent out invitations to the AGM by mail to those members lacking internet access and an email address.

I do hope you will be able to join us at our AGM on 30 June at 4.00 pm (16.00 BST).

  • The Agenda for the AGM and all the supporting documents are available on the Society’s website. Please read these, or download them if you need to print them out.
