Description
Shackleton is widely acknowledged as the authority on the law and practice of both company and non-company meetings. Covering all sizes of meetings from AGMs, local authority meetings, public meetings to specialised committees, the work clearly takes you through every stage of the meeting from selecting a venue, its convening and preparations, to conduct, minute taking and adjournment
Additionally dealing with related topics - such as defamatory statements at meetings and breach of the peace at public meetings - the book is an essential reference guide, suitable for legal professionals, company secretaries, administrators, directors, local authorities and any other organisation that holds formal meetings. This new eleventh edition has been brought fully up to date with all recent legislative changes since the last edition; most notably the Companies Act 2006, and the abolition of the need for private companies to hold AGMs. It also takes account of all other case law and legislation affecting this area, including the Human Rights Act 1998, Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003,Terrorism Act 2000, Electronic Communications Order 2000, Societas Europaea and the Enterprise Act 2002.
