Notice(s) of motion for an electronic Annual General Meeting (eAGM)

Notices of motion proposed for General Meetings (including an electronic Annual General Meeting) are usually of major significance: that is, they involve a change of Constitution, or of significant operating procedure, or of major policy direction.

They are not usually used for minor differences of opinion, for personality-based matters, or for other minor issues.

Before putting forward a notice of motion for this electronic AGM process, please consider whether something you may want to raise could be handled in a simpler way, for example:

  1. request for consideration of an issue by the board of directors;
  2. development of a policy paper, or optional policy position (you may like to draft one);
  3. commissioning of research on a topic, issue or policy;
  4. writing of an opinion piece for the website (the editor/webmaster welcome contributions at all times of the year, not only around the eAGM);
  5. etc.


If it would help you, please consider discussing a proposed notice of motion with the President or the CEO/Secretary before putting it into the online system.  Initial contact details are:
