Vision Australia 2021 Annual General Meeting

06 October 2021

The 17th Annual General Meeting of members of Vision Australia Ltd (“the Company”) will be held at 3.30pm (AEDT) on Wednesday 27th October 2021. Registration will commence from 3.00pm.

Due to COVID-19, we have decided it is safer for us to conduct the meeting differently to our usual gathering. The meeting will be conducted with the assistance of technology, a process that has been endorsed by the regulators during the current congregating constraints. We have chosen Zoom as our preferred platform.

If you reside outside Melbourne and you are not able to connect by computer or phone to the meeting, a video link of the meeting will be available at the following Vision Australia sites whereby members will be able to observe and participate in the meeting via live video streaming.  

Should you attend a Vision Australia site for this purpose, please be aware you will be required to comply with COVID-19 screening and protocols and social distancing rules.  

Do not attend if you are unwell or have cold or flu-like symptoms (even if only mild).  

If you are planning to attend, please make sure you confirm this as we can only accommodate small numbers on-site given congregating constraints, and we will need to discuss COVID-19 requirements with you before you attend.  

We will not be providing food and refreshments, in the interests of minimising risk to attendees.

Please note: if no confirmed attendances are received for a video linked site, that site will not be video linked to the meeting.
