Annual General Meetings – call for Notices of Business & nomination of candidates for election of directors

The Annual General Meetings of Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Limited (ACN 102 451 785) (‘SGLMG’) and Mardi Gras Arts Limited (ACN 158 800 018) (‘MGA’) will be held in Sydney, on Saturday 30 November 2019.  Details of timing and location will be provided when the formal notices of meeting are issued in early November.

Any two members of SGLMG or of MGA may lodge with the Company Secretary a notice in writing setting out any business or resolution (‘Notice of Business’) the members wish to be dealt with at the AGM of SGLMG or MGA, as the case may be.  If a resolution is proposed, a document explaining the purpose and effect of the resolution may accompany the Notice of Business.  In preparation for the AGMs, and in accordance with clause 6.11 of the Constitution of SGLMG and clause 5.13 of the Constitution of MGA, I give notice that, in order for any matter specified in a Notice of Business to be dealt with at the AGM in respect of which the Notice is given, any Notice of Business (and accompanying explanatory document) must be received at the principal place of business of the company (Suite 6, 94 Oxford Street Darlinghurst NSW 2010) or by email (sent to company.secretary@mardigrasarts.org.au) by 5pm (AEDT) on Friday 25 October 2019

Further, the AGM of SGLMG will include ballots for the election of directors to the Boards of each of SGLMG and MGA.  Any 2 members of SGLMG (the ‘Nominators’) may nominate another member of SGLMG who is not ineligible to be a director of, or disqualified from managing, a company under the Corporations Act 2001 or disqualified from being a Responsible Person under the Australian Charities and Not‑for‑profits Commission Act 2012 within the previous 12 months (the ‘Candidate’) for election as a director of SGLMG and MGA.  A nomination must be in writing and signed by the Candidate and the Nominators.  A Candidate may also submit written material, not exceeding 200 words, in support of the Candidate’s nomination and a digital headshot of the Candidate (JPEG or PNG format). A valid nomination and any supporting material must be received at the principal place of business of SGLMG (Suite 6, 94 Oxford Street Darlinghurst NSW 2010) or by email (sent to company.secretary@mardigrasarts.org.au) by 5pm (AEDT) on Friday, 1 November 2019.

An information session for members interested in nominating as a Candidate will be held at the SGLMG offices (Suite 6, 94 Oxford Street Darlinghurst NSW 2010) at 6pm (AEDT) on Monday 28 October 2019.  Attendance is NOT a precondition of nominating as a Candidate.  However, to manage the session, interested members are asked to indicate their attendance by emailing company.secretary@mardigrasarts.org.au, by 9am on Monday 28 October 2019.
