NQLC 2019 AGM – further extension approved
Dear NQLC Members
On 12 February 2020 NQLC received confirmation from the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations (ORIC) granting an extension to the date for the NQLC 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM). The revised date by which the NQLC was to hold its 2019 AGM was to be no later than 30 June 2020.
Many members will know from correspondence earlier in the year that the Board of NQLC is proposing to restructure the NQLC’s current governance model and corporate structure. This is in order to accommodate new economic development and community service functions for the NQLC. However due to the restrictions implemented as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, community engagement and the proposed Land Summits in Townsville and Cairns were unable to take place.
To ensure the most effectual outcome, the NQLC Board applied to ORIC for a further extension to the date of the 2019 AGM. The date by which the NQLC Board is now proposing to hold its 2019 AGM is no later than 30 November 2020; holding both the 2019 and 2020 AGM in the same sitting.
On 30 June 2020, NQLC received confirmation from ORIC granting the above request. NQLC will hold its 2019 and 2020 AGM in the same sitting no later than 30 November 2020.
NQLC will continue to be ‘business as usual’ on all operational fronts.
Should you have any queries do not hesitate to contact the NQLC office on Ph: (07) 4042 7000 or freecall: 1800 814 779.
