Nature Society (Singapore) warmly invites all members to our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday, 20 May 2020 at 19:00 hrs.

 

The NSS Executive Committee (Exco) has decided to proceed with this event, in spite of the Circuit Breaker social distancing measures currently in place in Singapore. As such, the meeting will be conducted online as allowed by the Registry of Societies, MHA.

 

The Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2019 will be posted to the NSS website by 12 May 2020.

 

We look forward to seeing as many members as possible at the meeting.

For items (2) to (4), the President, Treasurer and respective Chairs will table their reports with a few selected slides onscreen to give an overview of their activities.  They will then take questions and/or facilitate discussion.  This should keep the AGM as short as in previous years, while providing an opportunity for members to ask questions and/or air their views.
 
Quorum
The quorum for the AGM is 60 voting members, not counting the outgoing Exco members.  If there is no quorum at 19:00 hrs, the meeting will be adjourned until 19:30 hrs – at which time it will commence with whatever number of members is present.
