Motion: That in accordance with Rule 24.6 a sum of $280k be approved to be paid to the Board annually as Directors’ fees. [24.6] The Members in general meeting may vote on a resolution to approve from time to time an aggregate lump sum to be paid to the Board annually as Directors’ fees. Where payment of such an annual aggregate lump sum is approved by Members then:

  • it will be allocated annually among some or all of the Directors as the Board may decide from time to time; and

The Board of Directors intend to hold an in-person annual general meeting as set out in this Notice of Meeting. However, if the Board of Directors determine that it would be appropriate for the Annual General Meeting to be held via virtual video software and not in-person due to ongoing developments in the Government response to COVID-19 (including alert level restrictions) and to ensure members’ health and safety, a further notice will be sent to members via email and will also be made available online here closer to the time. That notice will include details for a virtual meeting which will be held at the same time and date.
