Let it be said that AGMs and EGMs are not the same.
During June 2012, I attended an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) which was convened in the format of an Annual General Meeting. The associate members received notification of the EGM via a website link and were encouraged to send their proxy votes via email. They were not given any hard copies of the Agenda Items to be discussed and were expected to give their approval vote without sight of any documentation at hand.
It is with regret that I have to say that the meeting was held in a most disorderly and unprofessional manner which gave grave concern to the actual status regarding the running of business and accounts.
For those who wish (and need) to be enlightened, I have included a website link below which gives a definition of an Extraordinary General Meeting and Annual General Meeting.
