‘Ending the year on a high’ – Planning your AGM and Successful Handover – governance training session

Tuesday 14 June 2022, 7pm-8.30pm  

Online ZOOM webinar.  


The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the most important event in the calendar year of the incorporated association.

Apart from it being a legal requirement, the AGM is where the members of the association get an update on everything that has happened through the year and also receive a full picture of the financial health of the early childhood service by way of the annual financial report.

It is a time for celebration and an opportunity to thank and recognise the individual parent committee volunteers for their tireless efforts in keeping the early childhood service going. You also celebrate the incredible job the educators have done in planning and carrying out a quality kindergarten program thus far.  

Most importantly, it is the event where the new committee is elected and the voted in to manage the early childhood service for the next term of office. This agenda item on the AGM is often what causes the most stress but without a new committee, the incorporated association may no longer be able to meet their legal obligations.  

When you take a step back and look at the AGM like this, it is no longer just an event you put together in a few weeks. It’s an event that is put together with thought, effort and heart so that it becomes one that the community look forward to attending and new parents approach with open minds and excitement to join the committee of management and continue the legacy.  

ELAA’s ‘Ending The Year On a High’: Planning your AGM and Successful Handover governance training will provide you with an understanding of the importance of the AGM and practical tips on how to plan for this event including recruitment and what to include on the agenda. This training will also support committees to prepare for the handover which is vital in ensuring that the new committee are prepared to take on their new roles.  

Don’t wait till the end of the year to attend this session – come along so you can be prepared to stage a great AGM and prepare for a successful handover.
