All members have been sent either emails or a paper invitation from Vero Voting (Vero) inviting them to attend the 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is being live streamed.

If you have not accepted the invitation and wish to attend, please use the link in the email from Vero to register to attend the AGM. When registering, you can pre-vote or appoint a proxy to attend on your behalf.

If you have registered, you will receive a further email from Vero approximately 1 hour before the meeting and if you click on the link, it will take you directly into the meeting.

If you wish to ask a question, use the Q&A button on the screen during the meeting. As the AGM is being live streamed, this is the only method to ask questions. You can also ask questions prior to the meeting using the same button on the screen within the Vero portal.

When the voting commences, the resolution will be read to the meeting and then you will be asked to vote. If you have already pre-voted or appointed a proxy, you do not need to take any action. If you have not voted, click on the tab at the top of your screen that says “vote” and you will be able to vote on the resolution. Once the resolution is read, you will be able to vote for 2 minutes and then the result will be announced. The meeting will then move to the next resolution. This process will be used for all resolutions.

As there were no nominations as at 15 April 2021, there is an election for the position of Federal Treasurer. Since 15 April 2021, we have received two nominations however in accordance with the ACDS Rules, nominations will be taken at the meeting. If you wish to nominate, it will assist the running of the meeting if you would advise the federal secretary as soon as possible and forward a resume of no more than 300 words to him. The resumes of the two nominations already received and any additional nominations will be read to the meeting when that resolution is ready to be put to the meeting.

The AGM will be recorded and posted on the ACDS Federal website in a few days’ time.

Yours sincerely
Federal President
