2020 Annual General Meeting
July 31st 2020
In this the COVID year of on line meetings, Scouts SA held a very successful virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM). Voting of Office Bearers, Presentation of the Annual Report and Financials, appointment of Life Members, amendment to the constitution and Appointment of Auditors were all done on line. A small gathering of BEC members and Commissioners attended the filming of the meeting. Thanks to Smart Event Management (run by Josh Smart, a sitting board member) who produced a video of the meeting which Premiered on Friday the 31st of July.The AGM video is available here.
The online AGM proved very popular and more than doubled the number of votes from those members eligible to vote. We had 184 members cast votes, 166 online and 18 postal. This compares to 70 face to face and 2 postal in 2019.
Attendance also more than doubled with 260 views of the AGM online compared to an average attendance at the AGM of about 150 over the last 5 years.
All in all, an AGM with double the engagement of a physical meeting.
Congratulation to Board members elected, re-elected and to all who nominated. The Current BEC can be seen here.
