Annual General Meeting

Due to the shutdown issues associated with COVID-19, the Board have delayed the usual timing of our AGM in line with the announcement in May to temporary amendments to the Corporations Act allowing organisations to delay AGMs for up to six months.  Additionally, consistent with the temporary amendments to the Corporations Act we are also investigating how best to undertake the AGM during COVID-19 and we are considering options including virtual AGM.  Once these matters have been determined the Board will set a date and notify members accordingly.
