How to take your Annual General Meeting online
Annual General Meetings (AGM) are essential business for not-for-profits, with most states requiring associations to hold an AGM once a year. Usually that must happen within several months of the start of the financial year, depending on the organisation’s constitution.
Amid the havoc caused by COVID-19, most states and territories have issued extensions for holding AGMs in 2020 and relaxed their approach to some regulatory requirements. Though if you prefer to get the event organised and completed during a normal timeframe, the Institute of Community Directors has assembled a helpful guide filled with resources to assist you in transitioning to an online AGM.
The guide looks at good governance and how to plan for a good AGM, getting the right technology, and a provides a pre-event checklist.
