1. APPENDIX 1: NOTES TO THE NOTICE OF AGM

1. Entitlement to Vote

Only full members (ie., Individual Member and Corporate Member Representative) whose membership is current at the time of the AGM may vote

2. Appointment of proxies

2.1 If you are a full member who is entitled to attend and vote at the AGM, you are entitled to appoint a proxy to exercise all or any of your rights to attend, speak and vote at the AGM in accordance with the proxy form included with this notice of the AGM. A proxy does not need to be a full member of EI but must attend the meeting to represent you. You can only appoint a proxy using the procedures set out in these notes and the notes to the proxy form. 

2.2 If you do not give your proxy an indication of how to vote on any resolution, your proxy will vote or abstain from voting at his or her discretion. Your proxy will vote (or abstain from voting) as he or she thinks fit in relation to any other matter which is put before the AGM.

2.3 To appoint a proxy using the proxy form, the form must be:
(a) completed and signed;
(b) emailed to EI for the attention of Richard Heath, treasurer of EI, at treasurer@executives-int.ch; and
(c) received by EI no later than 9 April 2021, 6pm CET.

2.4 Any power of attorney or any other authority under which the proxy form is signed (or a duly certified copy of such power or authority) must be included with the proxy form.

2.5 Full members may change proxy instructions by submitting a new proxy appointment using the methods set out above. Note that the cut-off time for receipt of proxy appointments also applies in relation to amended instructions; any amended proxy appointment received after the relevant cut-off time will be disregarded. 

2.6 If you submit more than one valid proxy appointment, the appointment received last before the latest time for the receipt of proxies will take precedence.

2.7 A full member may change a proxy instruction but to do so you will need to inform EI by email to treasurer@executives-int.ch:  sending a scanned signed notice clearly stating your intention to revoke your proxy appointment to EI. Any power of attorney or any other authority under which the revocation notice is signed (or a duly certified copy of such power or authority) must be included with the revocation notice.   

2.8 The revocation notice must be received by EI no later than 9 April 2021, 6 pm CET.  If you attempt to revoke your proxy appointment but the revocation is received after the time specified, your original proxy appointment will remain valid unless you attend the AGM and vote in person.

2.9 Appointment of a proxy does not preclude you from attending the AGM and voting in person. If you have appointed a proxy and attend the AGM in person, your proxy appointment will automatically be terminated.

3. Communication

Except as provided above, full members who have general queries about the AGM should contact Richard Heath, treasurer of EI, at treasurer@executives-int.ch. Please note no other methods of communication will be accepted.
