The Annual General Meeting of the SLA

For members only, AGM is where we’ll discuss important business, look at what has been achieved in the last financial year, and look forwards to the future. We'll cover some important legal business, and it's also a time to get to know the board, who set the strategy and vision for the SLA. Once the formal business has been completed, our CEO Alison Tarrant will share some insights into the results of the member survey 2021. 

It's free to take part, and you can find all the documents you need here (remember, you need to be logged in!)
