AGM Governance Roles

Three AGM governance roles were up for election in 2020. Good governance is essential to our success, helping to set our direction and making or shaping many of the big decisions we take as an organisation. So we seek individuals with a broad range of skills, experiences and backgrounds to join our governance bodies. 

Amnesty International United Kingdom Section is a democratic, membership-led organisation. Many of our key governance positions are elected by our members. Board members are elected by a national ballot of members. Other important roles are elected at our Annual General Meeting (AGM).  



Three governance roles were up for election in 2020 to begin after this years’ Annual General Meeting. The following members were elected unopposed to these specified governance roles: 

• Chis Moss, AGM Chairperson for the 2021 AGM. 

• Sunit Bagree, Members and Directors Committee (MDAC) for three years from 2020 -2023. 

• Sheila Banks, was co-opted onto the Standing Orders Committee (SOC) for one year from 2020-2021.  

This year, Melvin Coleman stood down as a member of the SOC and Maggie Towse stood down from her role on the MDAC. We sincerely thank Melvin and Maggie for their invaluable contributions to Amnesty’s governance while in their respective roles. We also thank everyone who put themselves forward for our AGM governance roles this year. 

If you are interested in applying for any of these AGM governance roles in the next set of elections then please do get in touch at
