We encourage all members and proxy holders to participate in the AGM virtually via the online zoom platform. To do this you will need a desktop or mobile / tablet device with internet access. Members and proxy holders will be able to take part in the AGM via zoom, and to hear the discussion, subject to the connectivity of your device. To participate online you will need to register using this link.  When you register, you will need to provide your herd prefix details to be verified as a member or proxy holder.  If you have items to be added to General Business, or would like to register a question on notice to be addressed at the meeting, please advise CEO by Thursday 19 November – ceo@alpaca.asn.au.
