News & Analysis

In 2017, the ASA Board held a hybrid AGM to allow the participation of members from around the country as well as those able to physically attend on the day.

ASA is a longstanding champion of the AGM as the forum where boards are required to front shareholders and give them the opportunity to ask questions. It is a key aspect of good corporate governance.
