Guild AGM

Each Autumn, the Guild holds its Annual General Meeting, to which all Companions are invited, usually at a site or building that has some close connection to Ruskin or to the Guild's current or previous activity. It is always a convivial gathering, during which the previous year's activity and accounts can be reviewed and discussed, new Companions are invited to sign the Roll, and the Guild also hosts a Companion's dinner at the end of the day. The AGM is preceded by the Guild's annual Ruskin Lecture.
