A quorum is necessary to conduct the business of the AGM (a quorum is defined as one-quarter of the voting members in good-standing).


Per EGU Policy (Policy Manual 4.5: Member Club Participation in EGU Meetings): Each Empire GU-member club is expected to participate in Empire GU Board calls, AGMs and other interactions with the Empire GU Board.

Should the club President not be available, another person may be designated. If a club chooses to have another individual other than its President (or functional equivalent) speak on its behalf, that other person (including their name, CIPP number and club title) must be communicated to the Empire GU Board, in advance of the respective meeting.
