2020 Annual General Meeting

We are delighted to invite Members to attend YWCA Australia’s first virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held at 5:30pm AEDT on Thursday 19 November 2020 via Zoom.  In line with recent changes to the Corporations Act we will establish a private Zoom meeting environment which Members who have registered to attend will be able to access via a link provided prior to the AGM. 

Director elections

Four of our existing Directors, Nicole Freeman, Cara Gleeson, Lauren Tanner and Lina Tchung will be standing down as Directors. Nicole, Lina and six other candidates will be standing for election.  We intend to appoint four Directors, at least one of whom must be a Young Woman. We aim to exceed our constitutional requirement and are supportive of all young women candidates. Biographical details of each candidate have been made available for your reference.

Voting

We offer Members the opportunity to vote directly online. If you have a valid email address on your membership file, you will receive an email with your voting information. If you have not received this email, and would like to vote offline, please use the downloadable voting form.

Company information

The Financial Statements can be found here.

The Annual Report will be made available shortly.

Register

In order to receive the link to attend the AGM via Zoom, Members will need to register beforehand. 

Questions

Members will have the opportunity to ask questions of the Board, Executive and the Auditor at the AGM.  We encourage Members to submit their questions prior to the meeting by sending them to Kate O’Donohue, the Company Secretary, on companysec@ywca.org.au.

In the event that you are unable to attend the AGM we offer a range of other opportunities to engage with our Members, including regular electronic communications, the CBF, social media, and of course our phone lines and email addresses are always open.
