Annual General Meeting

All Cochrane members and supporters are invited to attend Cochrane's 2017 Annual General Meeting.

It also provides members with an opportunity to ask questions before voting on business decisions and current issues, which are put to the vote as 'resolutions'.

All members are entitled to vote on AGM resolutions. You are entitled to vote even if you are not attending the meeting.

DATE: Thursday 14 September 2017
TIME: 18:00-20:00 local time (GMT+ 2)
