Proposed byelaw changes: Annual General Meeting on 4 October 2022
A notice of advice for the Institute’s 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) was distributed on 5 September 2022. On the tab on the right, you can view the full Notice of Meeting for the AGM that will be held in Cape Town, South Africa on Tuesday 4 October 2022 at 17:30 hours (local time) to coincide with the Council meeting on 3 and 4 October 2022.
The proposed substantive changes have been driven by three factors – a review by Council over the last two years of eligibility requirements for membership, changes in technology accelerated by the pandemic that have fundamentally altered the way member’s meetings can be conducted and the desire for the Institute to be more inclusive and bring a wider range of skills and talents into the Council and Divisional Committees.
The changes proposed are designed to see that the Institute’s governance of membership eligibility and communication with members stays contemporary and that the Council’s and Divisional Committee’s membership is fit for purpose.
From the tabs on the right, you will find the detailed information that your Council believes will enable you to make an informed decision.
This year will be a hybrid AGM with live streaming as well as pre-meeting and online voting and participation on the day to be provided on a complimentary basis by Lumi. I encourage all members to participate online during the meeting, or to vote online or lodge a proxy, if they cannot attend. You can register to attend the meeting or vote online here on the Lumi platform. Further information on live streaming can be accessed by the tab on right – AGM Guide & joining instructions.
Please consider this information carefully and engage further with your Division on these important matters. Your Council recommends that you vote in favour of these initiatives.
