British Glass annual general meeting – bringing our industry together 


The British Glass annual general meeting takes place on 23 November 2017, and all members are urged to attend.


The meeting will include an overview of British Glass activity alongside the formal board business. 


British Glass is proud to welcome all parts of the glass supply chain into membership; this breadth of perspective has proved time and again to be the most effective way to broker solutions and bring about change. 


That’s why this representative body is urging member companies of all sizes and activities to play their part in the AGM. Every year it proves to be a great opportunity to strengthen relationships between members, and make new connections – as well as deal with formal business, review recent work and hear about coming activity.


Chief Executive of British Glass Dave Dalton said:


“The current operating climate, particularly in relation to Brexit, is brining both uncertainty and potential opportunity. It’s more important than ever that our member companies steer us, as their representative, to the priorities they want us to act on. I urge our members to carve out the time to do that, so that British Glass can work with them to clarify the common ground and purpose that will define our work with the wider industry and with government at all levels.”


The AGM will take place from 12.15pm on Thursday 23 November at the British Glass offices at 9 Churchill Way, Chapeltown, Sheffield S35 2PY. It will be followed by a buffet lunch.


Any members wishing to attend should RSVP to membership@britglass.co.uk by 15 November.
