Attention all Music Victoria Members,
A Special General Meeting of Contemporary Music Victoria Inc (“Music Victoria”) will be held at the Music Victoria office, Level 2, 77 Southbank Blvd, Southbank VIC 3006 on Tuesday 22 October 2019 commencing at 6:30pm.
The purpose of this Special General Meeting is to vote on a special resolution to make amendments to the Music Victoria Rules of Association (“Rules”). The proposed special resolution is set out in the link below and the complete changes proposed to the Rules can be accessed here.
The main intention of the proposed amendments to the Rules is to improve the processes and procedures around the Music Victoria Board’s make-up, elections, appointments, terms and rotations. There is a particular focus on removing the current shorter-term appointments (compared to known not-for-profit industry standards) and the practical risk of up to seven Directors (70%) being due for re-election or re-appointment at the one time in the same year. In short, Music Victoria is seeking an ideal rotation of 9 core Directors on the Board, with 2 elected Directors and 1 appointed Director (i.e. 1/3rd of the Board) due each and every year. Beyond this, the other proposed amendments are minor adjustments to more accurately reflect Music Victoria’s operations (e.g. Local Councils can now be members).
All current financial members of Music Victoria as at 22 October 2019 are welcome and encouraged to attend the Special General Meeting and will be eligible to vote on the proposed special resolution to amend the Rules. Please note there is only one vote per membership (e.g. one vote per individual membership, and one vote if you are in a band, small business or hold a corporate, council, gold or platinum membership).
If you are unable to attend the Special General Meeting, but would still like to vote on the proposed special resolution, current financial members are entitled to appoint a proxy to attend and vote. A proxy form is available for download here and must be submitted by 6pm 21 October 2019.
