This guidance aims to provide a practical ‘how to’ guide for charities approaching their first virtual or hybrid annual general meeting (AGM) as a consequence of the pandemic and resulting social distancing measures. This guidance will primarily address charities structured as charitable companies limited by guarantee (CLGs) and charitable incorporated organisations (CIOs). The guidance refers to the flexibilities provided by the recent Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 20201 (CIGA) and draws on the experience of organisations that have already held virtual or hybrid AGMs.
In this guidance a virtual meeting means a meeting where none of the participants are physically in the same place for the meeting but are in communication with each other by video conferencing; a hybrid meeting means a meeting where some but not all of the participants are physically present in the same place but all are in communication by video conferencing.
