Description
Meetings concern every organisation. They concern most of the companiesregistered under the Companies Act because every company has to hold avariety of meetings during its lifetime. While board, committee andannual general meetings are of regular occurrence, other meetings areof occasional occurrence. The rigmarole of convening and conduct ofmeetings, and the post-meeting formalities, involve a great deal ofwork that every company secretary and her/his staff has to attend to.This is equally true of the company which does not have a qualifiedcompany secretary. Meetings are governed by the statute and the articles of association ofthe company and, therefore, complying with the requirements under themis a vital duty of a company secretary. This is more rigorous in listedcompanies owing to additional obligations under the listing agreement.Sometimes meetings are also impacted by shareholders' agreement orother documents. This book caters to the needs of all types of companies, private andpublic, listed and unlisted as well as concerning all types ofmeetings. The book not only deals exhaustively with the law as well asprocedures and practices relating to all aspects of the convening andconduct of meetings, but also with all types of meetings. The appendixto the book sets out, in simple and lucid language, several sampleresolutions that are commonly required to be passed in companies. Thebook will be equally useful to company secretaries, lawyers and judges.Organisations other than companies will also find it useful as apractical guidebook.
