Contents of the notice - meetings and resolutions, Business Law and Ethics

Contents of the Notice:

The notice convening a meeting must be clear and explicit so that the person receiving it may be in a position to decide whether or not he ought in his own interest to attend the meeting: Tiessen v Henderson (92).  This is the fundamental legal requirement.        

In practice, however, the articles generally mention some of the items that have to be stated in the notice.  For example, Table A, Article 50 states that the notice "shall specify the place, the day and the hour of of meeting and, conversely in case of such special business, the general nature of that business".  If the meeting is the annual general meeting, the notice must "specify the meeting as such" as prescribed by s.131(1). Whereas the meeting is convened to pass a special resolution the notice must justify "the intention to propose the resolution as a special resolution".
