Notice is hereby given of the 73rd Annual General Meeting of the
Association of Ukrainians in Victoria (AUV)
To be held using – Zoom meeting process
Sunday 25 October 2020 at 2:00pm
Registration: 1.45pm AGM Start: 2:00pm
Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and its potential danger to our members, the AUV cannot hold this year’s AGM in the normal manner at the Essendon Domivka. ASIC, the Government controlling body for incorporated companies, has given relief to all companies enabling them to hold AGM’s electronically. Consequently the AUV Board has decided to use the “ZOOM” platform as the process to conduct the AGM this year.
Note: all Branch members.
This is not your Branch AGM. As a member of an AUV Branch, you are automatically entitled to vote for the AUV Board & Audit Committee.
Registration of members:
Only paid up members as of 1 October 2020 will be invited to the session and only paid up members will be permitted to log on. If you have not paid your membership, please do so before end September.
Information about the process of logging onto Zoom will be provided closer to the AGM date.
Note on voting:
Given that this is our first internet based AGM and the difficulty and subsequent costs of managing internet based AGMs, the Chair and AUV Board have decided that this year’s voting for members of the Board and Audit Committee will be conducted by letter or email to all members as permitted by clause 30.2(c) in the Constitution.
CONSEQUENTLY THERE WILL BE NO VOTING DURING THE AGM.
Only members of the AUV who have paid their membership fees by 1 October 2020 are eligible to vote prior to the AGM.
Nomination Proposers and Candidates must be fully paid up members of the AUV as of 1 of October 2020 and a member for greater than 6 months.
