RNLI Annual General Meeting 2020


The welfare of our volunteers, supporters and staff, along with our ability to maintain our world-class lifesaving service, is our priority. 

We have closed all RNLI shops, museums and visitor centres with immediate effect. Our lifeboat stations remain operational but will not be open to visitors. Our volunteer crews will continue to launch to those in peril at sea – and they need your support more than ever.

Due to the current uncertainty of the duration and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, RNLI Trustees have decided to move the AGM 2020 from the planned date (9 July, as advertised in Lifeboat and on this page) to later in the year. 

Therefore, please note that the AGM will now take place on Thursday 29 October 2020 at the Leonardo Royal Hotel London Tower Bridge.

Further communications relating to the AGM will be shared in due course and will also be available on this page.

The decision has also been made to move the Annual Meeting of the RNLI in Scotland from the planned date of Thursday 4 June to Friday 16 October. Further communications about this event will be sent out in due course.
