Dear SPCCAA members,
As you are aware, the HKSAR Government introduced new measures on Friday night to manage the COVID-19 situation in Hong Kong, including restrictions on people gathering in public
Details of these measures can be accessed via the following link:
We have since sought and have now obtained clarification and advice on item # 11 on the list of exemption. It reads as follows:
11. Group gathering at a meeting of a body that must be held within a specified period in order to comply with any Ordinance or other regulatory instrument that governs the operation of the body or its business
Our AGM indeed falls into this category of exemption.
So please note that our AGM will proceed as planned on 31st March 2020.
All health and safety measures alluded to in the notice earlier this week will be in force.
Please also note that we have already issued strong recommendation for members to vote by proxy so that there is no need to attend in person. All resolutions have been circulated more than 3 weeks ago, and we have enough proxies to achieve quorum and to vote on the resolutions. No new business will be transacted or discussed at the AGM.
We therefore sincerely hope that only the following people will attend the meeting in person :
(1) members of the executive committee (not mandatory)
(2) the candidates (not mandatory)
(3) people who hold proxies for members
(4) members who have not given proxy and wish to vote in person
For all the above categories of attendees, we urge them to vote immediately after registration and then depart. Vote counting will be a time consuming process. We do not recommend attendees to wait around for the results , which will be posted promptly on the AA website.
For now, please pay close attention to our website and Facebook page in case evolving circumstances make it necessary for us to make changes.
Thank you for your attention and cooperation to enable your alumni association to fulfil its duty to comply with Company Ordinance and do it in a safe and efficient manner.
