2021 YWCA Canberra Annual General Meeting

Notice is given that the 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the members of YWCA Canberra will be held as follows:

  • Date: Monday 1 November 2021
  • Time: Registration will open at 4.30pm AEDT, with the AGM to be held from 5pm to 6pm AEDT.
  • Venue: Due to the limitations on meetings in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to keep our community safe, we are holding this meeting as a virtual event via Zoom. All current members will be sent an email with a link to access the event.

All correspondence regarding the AGM will be done via email. Please ensure you have provided us with your current email address. If you have not received your invitation by 8 October, please check your spam filters. If you still do not have your invitation, email governance@ywca-canberra.org.au

As per our Constitution, this event is for financial and honorary life members of YWCA Canberra, whose membership was current as of 1 October 2021. If you are uncertain on whether you are a current member, please email us.

Due to the nature of virtual meetings, we invite written questions from members in advance of the AGM. The Chair will seek to address as many of the questions as possible during the AGM. Members who would like to submit questions in advance of the AGM can do so by emailing governance@ywca-canberra.org.au by COB Monday 25 October 2021.

Please connect to the Zoom meeting 30 minutes ahead of the scheduled start time, to ensure that any connection issues can be resolved in advance, as well as any video and microphone/audio issues. This is to ensure that the meeting can start at the scheduled time.

You can view the Agenda for the AGM, the minutes of last year’s AGM, the 2021 Financial Statements and our Annual report.

We received the exact number of nominations from financial members for our Board Director and Office-Bearer positions as the number of positions available. The nominations committee has assessed their applications and found them eligible under our criteria and policy. As such, under our Constitution, the applicants will be taken to be elected to the positions without an election.

We will announce our new Directors and Office-Bearers at the AGM, as well as our 2021 Board Trainees.
