General meetings of members

Wednesday, 01 January 2020

A meeting is a gathering that has a purpose. General meetings include any meetings of members (usually shareholders) such as annual general meetings (AGMs), meetings of different classes of members and creditors’ meetings.


General meetings are governed by Part 2G.2 – 2G.4 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), the company's constitution, case law and, in the case of meetings of listed companies, by the ASX Listing Rules. General meetings usually cover matters outside of the scope of daily management, such as changes to the company name, status or capital structure, the constitution, approval of certain director benefits, removal and election of directors and auditors and director remuneration.
