    1. Welcome
    2. Receival of apologies and proxies
    3. Ordinary Business:
      3.1 Ordinary Resolution 1: “Removal of Forsyths as company Auditor, effective at 11:59pm (AEDT) 28th November 2018”.
      Background: In May 2018 the Angus Australia Board resolved that as the current auditor, Forsyths had served Angus Australia since 2006, and as a matter of good governance it was timely to put the audit service to tender.  Whilst Forsyths were invited to tender, they were not successful as the preferred provider. Since Forsyths have declined the request by Angus Australia to resign as auditor (as an unsuccessful tenderer) the Board has resolved that they should be removed, as per ASIC requirements.

      3.2 Ordinary Resolution 2: “To appoint Roberts & Morrow Audit and Advisory as company Auditor, effective 12:00am (AEDT) 29th November 2018”.

      Background: Following the Board’s decision to put the audit service to tender, four local audit firms were invited to tender.  Following recommendation by the Audit and Finance Committee, the Board selected Roberts & Morrow Audit and Advisory as the preferred provider for future audit services.  It was considered that this company had the necessary experience, knowledge and resources to provide Angus Australia with high quality services in a timely and efficient manner, by staff with significant not-for-profit experience.
