What are the differences between an AGM & Digital AGM?
An annual general meeting, or annual shareholder meeting, is held to allow shareholders to vote on both company issues and the selection of the company’s board of directors. In larger organizations, the AGM is typically the one time during a year when shareholders and executives get to interact.
The difference between an Annual General Meeting and a Digital Annual General Meeting is that a conventional AGM is held in-person in one location, typically making it difficult for some shareholders to attend due to physicality issues reaching the AGM location. Those can vote by proxy typically send in votes online somehow (if offered by the organization), so a Digital AGM creates an environment where EVERY shareholder gets to attend. When using a strong platform for these meetings, a Digital AGM makes it much easier to bring the voice of the all shareholders together in one space.
What are the drawbacks of Digital AGM?
A drawback of a digital (or virtual) AGM is being 100% reliant on a technology. Should a virtual meeting fail, due to technology issues (e.g.: WiFi issues or outages), an adjournment would be necessary.
How can I host a Digital AGM?
To get started in hosting a Digital AGM, check your organization’s bylaws and/or governing legislation to ensure that they allow for a virtual (or digital) AGM.
Make sure you choose a SAFE, RELIABLE, and AFFORDABLE technology platform for the Digital AGM. The shareholder’s experience needs to be a productive and positive one. This means you should work through marketing this effort to ensure all shareholders understand the experience they will have online (what they see on their computers, etc.).
You’ll want detailed communications to members from the first notice of the meeting through to the start of the Digital AGM.
You’ll also want to reinforce the SAFETY and SECURITY features of the platform so people feel safe in the experience, that they’ll have a voice (voting, etc.), and set up a support team to answer any technical difficulties that users may experience.
