We’re pleased to invite you to the 2018 Annual General Meeting of Credit Union Australia Limited (CUA) taking place on:
13 November 2019
Time and Venue: to be confirmed
In accordance with best practice Corporate Governance for member owned institutions, CUA has outsourced the administration of our Annual General Meeting and associated communications to Link Market Services. Link has extensive experience delivering meeting services for clients in the public, private and government sectors, conducting over 600 events in the previous financial year. Link also holds an ISO27001 accreditation – the highest global standard – for its information security management systems.
As a member, you have been allotted one Member Share which gives you the right to participate in the corporate life of CUA through receiving the Annual Report, attending and voting at any Meetings of Members, and the right to nominate to become a director of CUA. These rights are subject to the provisions of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and our CUA Constitution.

Every year, we produce an Annual Report for our members which provides information about our financial position and performance for that year. It also gives you, our member, information on the strategic direction and management of the company, the broader economic and regulatory environment and the financial risks facing the organisation.
You are welcome to attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is usually held in November. At the AGM, active CUA members can:
1) Participate in the governance of CUA
2) Meet the directors, the executive management team and the auditors
3) Ask questions about and comment on CUA’s strategy, financial standing and performance
4) Ask questions of the auditor about the conduct of the audit and the preparation and content of the auditor’s report
5) Vote on any resolutions put to members, including resolutions to amend CUA’s Constitution
If you can’t attend the meeting but would like to vote, you have the opportunity to make your wishes known by appointing a proxy to cast a vote on your behalf.
After you have been a member of CUA for 12 months or more, you will have the right to nominate to become a director of CUA. Because CUA is heavily regulated, nominees will need to have the right skills before being considered for the Board. CUA typically calls for Board nominations in early July and further information is available below.
You can choose the extent to which you wish to participate in the corporate life of CUA. We hope that you will see your membership as a valuable relationship with CUA and that you will be an active member as CUA grows and evolves as a business.
If you wish to be notified when we release the Annual Report, or receive the Notices of Meetings setting out matters for discussion at each meeting, you may opt in via the link below. If you choose not to receive the Annual Report and/or Notices of Meetings, these will still be available for you to view below when the meeting documentation becomes available.
Nominations for Election of Directors
Nominations for the election of directors to the CUA Board can be made each year during the nominations open period which will be made available each year on this page of the website.
Any nominations need to meet our constitutional requirements and be made in an approved format.
