Following the postponement of our AGM in April, we are delighted to be able to formally announce our 2020 Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday 24 September, 2020 at 3pm (BST).
We will be hosting the 2020 AGM, for the first time, online in a virtual meeting space. We hope this, our first virtual AGM, will offer access to all the membership, networking opportunities, engagement with other members and the Executive, as well as participation in our special panel discussion. The AGM is our pivotal meeting in the membership’s events calendar and encourage all our members to attend.
For Euro IRP to be able to host the meeting securely online, we will require all members to respond to our notice no later than Monday 21 September 2020. All members attending the AGM will need to be pre-registered for this event, with a profile and password, to access the platform on 24 September.
Our theme for the 2019 AGM was “The Future, a time for change” and little did we know what change would be upon us in 2020. The industry has faced MiFID II, Brexit and now COVID to challenge us and Chris Deavin will be taking the opportunity to share his thoughts of the last 18 months including the recently published Members’ Survey Report, as he prepares to hand over the role of Euro IRP Chair this year. We will be welcoming Julia Ashworth and Pierre-Yves Gauthier as new Co-Chairs for 2020, and together they will share their vision for the future. We will leave time for an open Members Discussion with both Julia and Pierre-Yves at the end of the AGM. Members will require camera and microphone to be able to join the AGM and engage with other members and the Executive during the event.
Following our AGM, Chris Deavin will be chairing a special AGM Panel Discussion, as planned in April. We are delighted to be able to welcome our original guest panel speakers to discuss with Euro IRP their unique perspectives on the industry. All members who register for our AGM will have access to this special panel discussion.
Guest panel speakers:
– Bashar AL-Rehany (BCA Research)
– Travis Barker (HSBC Global AM)
– Edward Blad (Independent Research Forum)
– Mike Carrodus (Substantive Research)
We look forward to seeing our members at the Euro IRP 2020 AGM this year.
