RSL Queensland 2020 AGM

2020 State AGM

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE EVENT IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM COVID-19 SYMPTOMS.

Planning a COVIDSAFE AGM

In 2020, the Board has decided to include ONLY essential business requirements of the Annual General Meeting, and cancel any non-essential sessions, such as our traditional business sessions and gala dinner. We have also decided to delay ANY vote on the draft 2020 Constitution until such time as we can meet and debate this important decision in a face-to-face setting. 

To this end, the RSL Queensland Board has determined that a hybrid meeting format will provide the best balance between controlling delegate exposure to uncontrolled health risk, and providing Sub Branch delegates the opportunity to safely travel, meet, socialise and debate. 

This hybrid approach will see delegates from five Districts (Brisbane North, Gold Coast, Moreton, South East, Sunshine Coast) attending the AGM at our current venue of RNA Showgrounds. Delegates from the remaining Districts will assemble at one central venue per District. 

ALL locations will be linked via audio-visual meeting tools, and voting technology will be provided in each location to enable real-time voting on essential business motions. Delegates in each location will be provided opportunities to speak for and against motions, facilitated in the same way that a traditional face-to-face meeting would be. 

Delegates will arrive and register at each location on Monday 23 November, and the AGM will be held on the morning of Tuesday 24 November, with departure on the afternoon of Tuesday 24 November. 

Locations and Venues: 

Brisbane North, Gold Coast, Moreton, South East, Sunshine Coast – RICC RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane 
Far Northern District – Sheridan Hotel, Cairns 
North Queensland District – Rydges Southbank, Townsville 
Pioneer Fitzroy Highlands District – Lancaster Rooms, Harrup Park, Mackay
