AGM 2021 Online Voting Form

Competitive Members and Recreational Members of Snow Sports New Zealand (“Snow Sports NZ”) may choose to exercise their vote for the 2021 Annual General Meeting to be held on 1 October, by completing this online form (Rule 23.6*) instead of attending and voting at the AGM or by a Proxy (Rule 23.4). 

This method of voting does not count towards the quorum for a General Meeting so Snow Sports NZ encourages Members to attend and vote at all General Meetings rather than use this method of voting.
