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!!!
