WEBINAR: Running your AGM during COVID-19 - 22 September 2020

Danny Chifley, 8th September 2020

Advice on effectively governing your organisation during unprecedented times.

COVID-19 continues to impact all areas of operations within the community radio sector, and as we head into the time of year in which many of our stations conduct their Annual General Meetings, our webinar will provide guidance as to how a station might best conduct their administrative business remotely, safely, responsibly and in full compliance of our obligations. The session will include a presentation, links to further reading and resources and the opportunity for you to put forward questions.

Our session will look at:

  • Use of technology at an AGM
  • Financial reporting requirements
  • Voting electronically
  • Differences in legislation and administrative environment from state to state
Presented by: Jon Bisset, CBAA CEO

*NEW* Resources - added October 2021

The legislation governing companies limited by guarantee, the Corporations Act, was amended, initially for a period of six months, to allow companies to hold AGMs through the use of technology such as video conferencing and to provide notice of those meetings electronically (for example, by email). This has been extended until 31 March 2022 under the Treasury Laws Amendment (2021 Measures No. 1) Act 2021 (Amendment Act). Read more.

You can also find updated guidance related to charities and your incorporated association via NFP Law.

As we navigate our way both as a sector and a society through COVID 19, stations need to maintain fundraising both as a way of staying on air through uncertain times and assuring that we are on a sound financial footing once we return to normal programming (and life).
