Holstein UK AGM (Wednesday 1st July 2020)

It is clear that due to the current situation we will not be able to hold our Holstein UK AGM in the traditional format. We have consulted with the charitiy commission as to our legal obligations and the options of how we provide an AGM under the current circumstances. It is likely at this point in time that the AGM will have to be done via paper and we will be communicating over the current weeks as to how this will work.
