Running an AGM

AGM meet and mingleWe are at that time of year where many of you are getting organised for your club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM is an essential requirement for incorporated organisations and is an important event for clubs to communicate with their members, the general public and the committee. The purpose of the meeting is to give a broad overview of the club’s current direction and financial health. It also confirms the club’s purpose to the members and community – this is where your community can commit to the club and its goals for the future.

Most people try to avoid AGMs through fear of “being roped into something”, but what better way to have a positive influence and contribution to your club’s future direction?
