What is an Annual General Meeting (AGM)?
An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is a meeting of all the members of an incorporated association. The AGM must be held after the end of the financial year so that the financial statements can be presented to members. It must take place within 5 months of the end of the association’s financial year.
The main purpose of the AGM is for the members to approve the audited financials and elect the board of management (management committee).
