*What is an Annual General Meeting (AGM) and why was I invited?
An annual general meeting (AGM) is a meeting of the general membership of an organization. Normally at this meeting, organizations inform members of previous and future activities, accounts, review activities from the past year and it is also time to answer any questions regarding directions that will take in the future.
