Virtual attendance at the AGM
For the first time this year, the Board is pleased to announce that the NRMA will be giving Members the opportunity to attend and participate in the AGM via an online portal.
The ability of Members to attend and ask questions of the Board and management is a key aspect of good corporate governance: the online portal allows Members who are not able to be physically present at the meeting to hear from the Chair and the CEO and to ask questions of the Board and Auditors, while also enhancing the experience of those present.
For all the information on how to attend and participate virtually in the AGM there is an Online Portal Guide available here: https://events.miraqle.com/NRMA-AGM (click on the Virtual AGM tab).
A video of the meeting will be available on the link below after the close of the meeting on Friday 3 November, 2017. View the video of the 2017 AGM.
