Members are advised that the Board had scheduled this year’s Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) to
take place at the Club’s premises on 30 April 2020. Notice of the AGM has not yet been sent to
Due to new State Government restrictions to control the spread of coronavirus (also known as
COVID-19), the licensed premises of all registered clubs in New South Wales were closed from
12noon on Monday 23rd March 2020.
Normally the Club would be required to hold its AGM by no later than 31st May 2020.
However, given the present circumstances, the Australian Securities and Investment Commission
(“ASIC”) has issued a statement which essentially provides the Club with an extension of time to
hold its AGM.
The current extension of time requires the Club to hold its AGM on or before 31 July 2020 but ASIC
will review this as the COVID-19 situation unfolds.
Because the Club’s premises have been closed, the Board of the Club has resolved to postpone the
Annual General until a later date.
We will notify members of the new date for the AGM when it is known.
There is an election for 2 Directors to the Board of the Club under the Triennial rule scheduled this
year. Because the timing around the opening and closing of nominations and the ballot are all aligned
with the date of the Annual General Meeting then the ballot for the election of these 2 positions will
also be postponed. The current Board of Directors will remain in office until the conclusion of the
postponed Annual General Meeting.
The Board had also proposed holding an Extraordinary General Meeting immediately after the AGM
concluded to vote on the proposed amalgamation with Ingleburn Bowling Club. This proposed
meeting has also been proposed and will be re-scheduled to take place on the same day as the
AGM. As with the AGM we will notify members of the new date.
