Members are invited to join us for our Annual General Meeting (AGM). 

This years AGM will be held at Sandon Valley House, the Headquarter offices of Essex & Suffolk Water, by the Hanningfield Reservoir. We will be joined by Heidi Motram, Chief Executive Officer of Essex & Suffolk Water.

Registration opens at 4.00pm before the AGM commences at 4.15pm - the AGM agenda can be found in the Notice of Meeting HERE
Due to the nature of this event, it is only open to Members of Essex Chambers of Commerce.

Once the official AGM segment is completed, you will have the opportunity to hear from Heidi Mottram, who will be highlighting key points from the organisation’s new business plan for 2025-30, which includes over £6bn of investment, the largest amount since privatisation. 

The business plan is based on feedback received from customers and stakeholders, as well outlining how the company plans to exceed the expectations of regulators, alongside the proposed levels of investment to maintain and enhance services. It also includes making sure Essex & Suffolk Water are ready to rise to this challenge by enhancing their teams and recruiting talented experts to support them as they deliver on their promises. 

This is all presented against the challenges facing the water industry on a national level, including climate change, increasing populations, and all other factors impacting on water demand and more importantly, supply. 

As always, there will be plenty of opportunities for networking and expanding your professional circle. We look forward to seeing you there!
