The management of formal meetings and other decision-making processes are core company secretarial functions and crucial to the successful fulfilment of any company’s strategic goals and legal requirements. The Company Meetings Handbook will serve as a tool to ensure that these meetings are fully understood and undertaken in the most efficient and valuable manner.
It covers both meetings of directors and members, with a special focus on the alternative procedures that can be used to avoid holding meetings (particularly by private companies) and the process of preparing for and managing AGMs of public companies. Practical guidance on the maintenance of minutes and other related records is provided, alongside a thorough exploration of the governance structures that underpin the law of company meetings. Throughout, the book is informed by the latest legislation, regulation and corporate governance codes of practice.
