2017 ASA AGM Webcast

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. A hybrid AGM allows both shareholders in the room and those far distant to hear from directors, ask questions, and vote. It provides participation by all shareholders, not just some.

This was live streamed at 11am, Wednesday 10 May 2017
