The Coastguard Association’s 44th Annual General Meeting is taking place on Saturday 27th March 2021 starting at 10am.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 AGM which was all set to take place in Swansea had to be cancelled.

This year, we are delighted the 2021 AGM can take place, thanks to modern technology. Like the rest of the world, the Coastguard Association has embraced the virtual world with the AGM taking place via Zoom.

The agenda will include an update from all the committee members on their respective areas of responsibilities as well as discussions on forthcoming events, fundraising plans and the 200th anniversary of HM Coastguard.

This will be the first time in Coastguard Association history the AGM has been hosted virtually and it is hoped this will provide increased attendance and a great opportunity for members from around the country to come together, something which is not always logistically possible.

The virtual AGM is limited to 100 places due to the restrictions of Zoom but if you wish to attend as a member please e-mail the National Secretary at:

Here’s to an exciting and historic AGM and we look forward to seeing you – albeit virtually.


2020 Annual General Meeting

Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic we have cancelled the arrangements for the 2020 Coastguard Association AGM which was to be held in Swansea.
The safety and wellbeing of all our members is paramount to us and we strongly urge you to follow national safety guidelines and Government advice.
We remain here for you.
