We are standing with the Australian not-for-profit sector by ramping up our support for community organisations affected by COVID-19.

Can your not-for-profit organisation hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) remotely or should you postpone the meeting?

We’ve had lots of questions from not-for-profit organisations about whether they can postpone their AGMs or hold their AGMs remotely (using technology) in light of the social distancing requirements imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

We understand that all of this may be confusing so our lawyers have been in touch with state, territory, and federal regulators to get all the up-to-date information and are hosting a free 30 minute webinar to keep you informed.

You’ll leave this webinar with information to help you decide when and how to hold your AGM. You’ll receive links to further resources including our COVID-19 FAQs, and details of how to contact our team if you need specific advice.

What you’ll receive 

  • 30-minutes of plain-language training from an expert lawyer
  • Copy of webinar recording and slide presentation (recording available for 30 days)
  • Information on further resources and support

Cost: Free

Here's what past participants said about our webinars:

 “Very practical guidance and lots of access to resources and links etc to help in the future!”


 “Webinars make it a lot more convenient and I would definitely recommend others to attend your webinars.”


 “Really clear, concise and accessible information. Thank you!”
