2021 AGM

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of CPA Australia will be held on Tuesday 27 April at the offices of CPA Australia Ltd, Level 20, 28 Freshwater Place, Southbank, Victoria, commencing at 5.30pm (AEST).

Based on current regulatory advice the Melbourne office should be able to host up to 50 members at the AGM. Members will be able to view proceedings via live webcast and ask questions by phone or text during the meeting.

While CPA Australia and the Board ordinarily encourage members to attend the AGM in person, members are encouraged to consider carefully whether they should attend the venue for this year’s AGM based on public health advice at the time of the meeting. Depending on restrictions around travel or State government limitations on the size of gatherings, CPA Australia and the Board may be required to adopt extraordinary procedures in relation to the physical venue, including limiting or prohibiting attendance. As such, we encourage members to submit their proxies online as early as possible, even if you are planning to attend the meeting in person, as there may be restrictions on where and how the meeting can be conducted.

Previously, the Board has announced an intention to remove the unnecessary transitional provisions in CPA Australia’s Constitution. Originally planned for presentation at the 2021 AGM, this task is now being incorporated into a broader project to draft a plain English version of the Constitution that the Board will refer to the Council of Presidents and other key stakeholders for input and feedback, before presenting it for the consideration of members at a future meeting.

We encourage you to update your contact preferences to receive your notice of meeting and other communications by email. This is the most efficient, cost-effective and sustainable manner of communicating with members.

The notice of meeting and proxy form for the AGM will be dispatched to members as soon as possible but at least 21 days before the AGM, as required under S249H of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and the CPA Australia Constitution.

CPA Australia will provide a proxy form to each member at the same time that it provides the notice of meeting for the AGM, as required by section 249L of the Corporations Act and Articles 22(a), 34(a) and 34(c) of CPA Australia’s Constitution.

If members wish to propose resolutions for consideration at the AGM, then members should ensure that any resolutions and any statements are proposed in compliance with the Corporations Act and the Constitution. While members will need to satisfy themselves with respect to the requirements (including but not limited to S249N, 249O and 249P of the Corporations Act), any resolution and /or statement must be:

  • with respect to a matter within the competency of the members. For example, can’t be with respect to a matter within the directors’ powers
  • proposed by members with at least five per cent of the vote that can be cast on the resolution or at least 100 members who are entitled to vote at a general meeting – proposing members must sign the relevant notice/s that meet the notice requirements
  • received no later than Friday 26 February
  • no more than 1000 words.
