This morning I received notification of the forthcoming AGM of ShareSoc. This will be an on-line only meeting via Zoom which surely contradicts the recommended format for AGMs even if I personally would only attend on-line due to current disabilities.
This morning I did attend the AGM of Kings Arms Yard VCT (KAY) which was also an on-line only meeting via the Lumi platform. It was well managed and all questions were answered. There were no significant issues raised and all votes were passed with large majorities. One point that was raised however was the increasing director remuneration and I voted against the Remuneration Report for that reason.
I do feel however that AGMs should be hybrid meetings not solely on-line unless there are good reasons to do otherwise. Meeting the directors in person and being able to ask questions in an informal setting gives you a lot more information and enables one to better judge whether they are competent.
