This checklist is to help RNTBCs plan and hold Annual General Meetings.
Registered Native Title Body Corporates are required to hold an Annual General Meeting before December each year. Procedurally, these meetings are held to ensure that RNTBC members have an opportunity to comment, make decisions and elect directors.
Practically, these meetings are a key opportunity for community to hold the RNTBC accountable. These meetings provide community with a platform to make key decisions which effect their interests and enjoyment of country.
