23rd Annual General Meeting of PlantNetwork


Wednesday 8th May 2019, 14.00–14.30: Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens.


Each year we seek new nominees to our Board. Find out about our current Board members here. Our Board members who are Directors and Trustees of PlantNetwork, are all volunteers. Nominees should be able to actively participate in our Board meetings and discussions and actively support our events and event promotion. We are unable to offer expenses and we would expect the individual or their host garden/organisation to support their involvement in both time and expenses.

This year we are particularly, but not solely, interested in nominees from across Wales, Ireland and Scotland. Please note you do not have to be able to attend the AGM at Abbotsbury to be nominated.

Any nominations should be sent to the PlantNetwork Coordinator to arrive not later than 12pm on 25th April 2019, with the names of the proposer and seconder, both of whom must be members of PlantNetwork.  Please provide a brief statement of the skills and interests the nominee would bring to the Board. A nomination form is available below to help gather the relevant information. To arrange an initial informal talk please contact the PlantNetwork Chair Simon Toomer.
