    Breakfast Briefing (Canberra): AGM 101

    Further Information

    AuSAE Breakfast Briefing events provide an exclusive environment for motivated association executives to gain insights and advice from other industry professionals. Breakfast Briefing events enables members to raise and discuss critical issues affecting industry and network with other professionals from the not-for-profit sector.

    The Topic

    It is quite common for a not-for-profit organisation to incorrectly convene on AGM, or attempt to pass resolutions at AGMs which are legally invalid.

    This seminar will cover:

    • Is your organisation legally required to hold an AGM? (Some not-for-profits are exempt.)
    • What are the basic legal requirements to correctly convene an AGM?
    • Which resolutions need to be special resolutions and which can be ordinary resolutions?
    • How do you count 21 days?
    • Voting in modern times and using technology generally.
    • What do you need to do after an AGM?
    • What is the best food to serve at an AGM? … just kidding!!!

    Topic: Millennials and Associations - How to attract and retain the next generation of members

    Survey Matters has conducted independent research into Millennials and their behaviours and attitudes toward associations; particularly in the areas of:

    • Why they do (or, more importantly don't) join
    • Professional development
    • Content delivery
    • Service models
    • Culture and engagement
    Join us to hear how to remove barriers of participation and explore their membership needs, preferences and the challenges Millennials face, and how associations can capitalise on trends and opportunities to best attract and serve millennial members in the  future.
