2022 Annual General Meeting: to be continued!
22 March 2023 Update to AGM:
The AGM was well attended, with 17 members and several observers present. It ran for a bit over two hours.
The three constitution motions were debated strongly, then passed unanimously and without amendment. The fourth motion was amended to read:
- To adjourn this meeting until 11 April 2023, declare all committee positions vacant at the reconvened meeting, and move to conduct an election for all positions under newly adopted Rule 14.
The effect of this motion is that Technorama Incorporated will move to hold elections for full committee, and the process for nomination and election will be announced by 26 April such that nominations may open on or before 28 April. As the motion states, the AGM was then adjourned under Rule 31, with the consent of the meeting.
Note the date: The 2022 Annual General Meeting of Technorama Incorporated will be held at 1800 AEDT Wednesday 22 March 2023. In keeping with Technorama policy, the meeting will be entirely virtualised, using GoToMeeting and online voting.

Special Business Motions:
This year several motions have been proposed to improve and streamline the operation of the Technorama Incorporated Committee, and to move Technorama into line with best practice as exemplified by a number of our Sector Peak Bodies (including CBF, CBAA and CMTO).
To assist you with the process, further explanatory notes on the motions will be distributed shortly.
Because the outcome of Special Business Motion 3 changes the Committee structure, we have decided to run the meeting in two blocks. With approval of the meeting, we will
- run the agenda through to the conclusion of Item 9 (proposed constitution changes)
- declare committee positions vacant, consistent with the rules and decisions as adopted to that point
- adjourn the meeting for an appropriate period under existing Rule 31
- issue the call for nominations, open for a week
- open voting for a week
- reconvene the meeting and announce results
This allows nominations to proceed in accordance with the outcome of AGM motion 9.3. Details of how the nomination process will work will be distributed shortly after the meeting adjourns.
As is usual, the newly elected committee takes office once the reconvened Annual General Meeting is adjourned
Note: If you are a paid-up member of Technorama Incorporated, then you are eligible to nominate.
Who can vote in the election? All attending members in good standing will be eligible to vote at the AGM. Voting will be electronic, and fully secret ballot.
