Fragile X Society Annual General Meeting
Our Annual General Meetings (AGMs) are an important occasion in the Fragile X Society's year. They are an opportunity to reflect upon the successes and challenges of the previous year, to review and approve the charity's financial accounts and for the membership to vote on key issues, including electing members to the Board of Directors. Our board volunteer their time to lead and govern the charity. If you are interested in finding about more about becoming a Director, you can do so here. In order to become a Director of the Fragile X Society, a formal process must be followed which includes completing the nomination form which can be downloaded here.
