Annual General Meeting and Presidential Address

A general meeting shall constitute the highest legislative assembly of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA). The IFoA holds an Annual General Meeting (AGM) at least once in each calendar year. Your views are important to us.

Annual General Meeting 2021

The IFoA's AGM for 2021 will take place on Thursday 24 June 2021, starting at 9.30am BST.

Given our commitment to the safety of our members and employees, and as the easing of restrictions in respect of COVID-19 cannot be guaranteed at the time of confirming these arrangements, we have decided to hold our AGM virtually again this year.
