Financial Statements and Reports
Receive and consider the audited annual financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2023. The Corporations Act requires that the report of the directors, the auditors report, and the financial statements be laid before the annual general meeting. In addition, the company's constitution provides for these reports to be received and laid before the meeting.

During the meeting questions and comments can be raised on the financial report and questions relevant to the auditor and the content of the audit report.

Board of Directors and Auditor
Whilst there is no requirement in the constitution to re-elect directors it is necessary for the meeting to approve the appointment of directors who were appointed during the year.

During the year Lenore Plummer and Brian Jones were appointed to the board of directors. The board has requested that Brian Jones be chairperson of the Annual General Meeting.

The appointment of Les Pines as auditor requires the approval of the meeting and the engagement letter will be tabled at the meeting.
