Purpose of the annual SGM
The annual Signatory General Meeting (SGM) is an important forum for dialogue between the PRI Board and signatories. The board has the responsibility to report annually to signatories on the progress in implementing the three-year strategic plan and the SGM is an opportunity to present the PRI’s progress.

At the 2022 SGM the PRI Board and Executive will:
  • report on the implementation of the PRI’s strategy;
  • report on the work of the board and committees during the previous year;
  • report the results of the annual review of the functioning of the board;
  • announce the 2022 PRI Board election candidates.
 
The PRI convenes an SGM in each calendar year in accordance with the SGM rules. The PRI Articles and SGM rules allow for a virtual SGM. To accommodate the PRI’s global signatory base there will be two SGMs held on 13 October 2022 at 06:30 – 08:00 BST and 15:00 – 16:30 BST. A recording of the meeting will be available online for signatories who are not able to attend.
  
Ask a question
The board encourages signatories to participate actively in all areas of PRI governance. Signatories can ask questions in advance and will also be able to post questions live during the meeting. We will allocate time in the meeting for signatory questions.
 
The Chair and CEO will try to answer all questions in the meeting in the allocated Q&A time. If we are unable to answer a question due to time constraints, we will provide an answer to the signatory after the meeting and post answers on the PRI website.
 
Please submit your question(s) via email to [email protected]. The deadline to submit questions in advance is 6 October.
