Notice is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of Auckland Thoroughbred Racing Inc. has been postponed and will now be held on Tuesday 7 December 2021 at 4.30pm, Level 2, Ascot Stand, Ellerslie Racecourse.
Lodging of Notices of Motion, pursuant to Rule 21.1, for consideration at the Annual General Meeting close at 4.30pm, Tuesday 9 November 2021.
The Board of Directors intend to hold an in-person annual general meeting as set out in this Notice of Postponement of Annual General 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 closer to the time including details for a virtual meeting at the same time and date.
Please note that the Nomination of Proxy Vote and the Proposed Motion (below) that were posted to you along with the Club's Annual Report are still valid.
Mr G Vazey will move the motion set out below.
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:
a) it will be allocated annually among some or all of the Directors as the Board may decide from time to time; and
b) it will apply annually until the Members in general meeting pass a resolution to revoke or vary their approval.
