What is a hybrid AGM?
A Hybrid AGM is where some attendees will join the meeting remotely and others will attend in-person at the physical meeting. In a traditional AGM, shareholders are required to attend the meeting in person to cast their votes on important corporate matters, such as electing board members, approving financial statements, and making other critical decisions for the company. Members joining remotely should have the same opportunity to participate as those attending in-person. Meaning, articles permitting, they should be allowed to be seen and heard and also vote on motions/resolutions.
