Listening to our members

The Association of Drainage Authorities’ Annual General Meeting (AGM) typically takes place every year during the ADA Conference. We set aside up to an hour for ADA members to receive reports, review accounts, and vote on items relating to the Association’s business and governance. Any ADA member can raise a matter for discussion at this year’s AGM in advance of the meeting.

Annual General Meeting 2020


Wednesday 11th November 2020




To be held remotely online via Zoom conference platform


Please Note: ADA’s Annual General Meeting in 2020 will be hosted separately from the ADA 83rd Annual Conference.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and after thoughtful consideration and discussion with the Board of Directors, ADA has decided to move the ADA Annual General Meeting 2020 to a virtual format to be held online, via Zoom, on Wednesday 11th November 2020, 14.00-15.30. To simplify proceedings for delegates, and reduce screen-time, we have decided to conduct ADA’s Annual General Meeting in 2020 as a completely separate meeting to the Association’s 83rd Annual Conference, which will be held online earlier the same day.


Business and proceeding will be conducted in accordance with the Association of Drainage Authorities Memorandum & Articles of Association. See ADA AGM Notice & Agenda above.


Appointed representatives: The AGM should be attended by appointed representatives of ADA’s Member authorities and businesses. Such a representative will be able to vote in any formal matters at the AGM. IDB Clerks/Chief Executives will need to establish who will be representing their IDB(s) in advance of the AGM and make sure to book their place.

Observers: Those who are not formally representing an ADA member may attend to listen to our discussions (although you won’t be able to vote).
