25th Annual General Meeting of PlantNetwork


Thursday 22nd April 2021, 16:00–16.30: Online


After the success of our first online AGM last year, we will be conducting our second online AGM this year – our 25th anniversary year. Find out more about PlantNetwork, what we have been doing and what we intend to do in 2021 by joining our AGM on 22nd April at 4:00pm. The meeting will last about 30 minutes, although there will be time for questions and discussion after the main meeting to discuss the impact of Covid-19 on PlantNetwork.

To participate, complete the booking form and you will be sent a link to the meeting room. The AGM follows a FREE webinar (3-4pm) looking at career curation which you are very welcome to attend as well. Only one registration is required to attend both events.


Each year we seek new nominees to our Board of Trustees. We have received a number of nominations this year: details of all nominations will be available from this site two weeks before the AGM. Further nominations should be submitted by 4pm on Wednesday 7th April 2021. If you would like to be considered for nomination to the board, please contact the PlantNetwork Coordinator for more information about the role and for a nomination form.
