Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 12th August 2019 at 7:30pm at York St John University – Room Skell 035. If you are unsure where to go please see this map.

York Pride is entirely run by a small group of unpaid enthusiastic volunteers. If you fancy getting more involved in York Pride 2020, our AGM is the best and easiest way to start, whether as an all-round Pride Ambassador or you’d like to jump right in and stand for a full officer’s role.
