Annual General Meeting
We were delighted to see you at this year’s AGM. The one-day event included presentations from the Board and from our interim CEO Sacha Deshmukh. We were delighted to welcome a special guest for this year’s AGM, our new Secretary General Agnès Callamard. Here was the programme for the day.
It would not have been an AGM without debates and voting on resolutions. We learnt how to adapt and improve our use of technology platforms throughout this extraordinary year, and this year the AGM platform allow us to ask questions and contribute to the discussion.
Deciding our future, AGM, 19th June 2021
The AGM is a chance to participate in our decision-making by debating and voting on a range of issues, from how we are governed to campaigning issues. All Amnesty International United Kingdom Section members can attend and vote, whether individual, groups or affiliates. Your vote matters and this is your chance to make sure your voice is heard.

Board Election: The Board is the body that oversees the AIUK section. It is made up of elected Amnesty members and co-opted Directors.
This year, there was an election for five places on the Board. Full details of the ballot process and candidate information can be found here.
Shape how we work: We regularly have opportunities for volunteers to shape how we are run as an organisation and help to ensure that we are doing the best work we can to protect human rights.
