Earlier this month Border Terrier Welfare held their first virtual AGM. Obviously the AGM is held annually, but this year we were unable to meet in person, so we adopted the tech to enable an online meeting, where many joined and hear our presentation. It is difficult to find an online meeting platform that suits everyone and we also appreciate it is difficult for everyone to attend in a virtual format, but we had to have some form of virtual meeting for our own compliance. However, we're sharing information from the AGM & the presentation in this blog to make it as as accessible as possible to those who were not able to attend the meeting, or for those who want to review it again.
AGM Reports 2020
The meeting attendees were given the Meeting Minutes from the 2019 AGM, along with Officer's Reports to the 2020 meeting.

Fostering Border Terriers by John & Vanessa Jessop
Once the AGM meeting was concluded, our event continued with a short time for networking and for everyone to refresh their tea before we continued with our feature presentation from John & Vanessa Jessop on Fostering Border Terriers.
We are pleased to include a video of their presentation for you to enjoy, as it was well received at our event and we know that many expressed disappointment at missing it as they were not able to attend the AGM.
