2022 Annual General Meeting

28th June 2022

We held our 2022 AGM back in the Council Chamber.

To acknowledge the importance that the Forum places on campaigning for older people, we are delighted that Jan Shortt, General Secretary, National Pensioners Convention, came to Enfield to deliver the inaugural memorial lecture in honour of our late President Monty Meth. She updated us on the current NPC campaigns and discussed how we can all work together to improve the lives of older people in the UK. We will have a fuller report here in the near future. In the meanwhile, here are the slides that accompanied her talk.

Venue:

Council Chamber,
Enfield Borough Civic Centre,
Silver Street,
Enfield EN1 3XA.

Forum’s 2020 Annual General Meeting

Our AGM was due to take place on 30 June but obviously current government regulations on large gatherings prevented this. We are investigating the possibility of holding it online as well as looking at new dates later in the year. We will let you know as soon as it is decided so check back here and/or look out for emails from us. (So make sure we have your email address if you have one).
