As a member of Hume, you agree to be bound by our Constitution and may choose to receive notices of meetings of members of Hume (for example Hume’s Annual General Meeting) via email or post. Meeting notices are also published via the newspaper, available via Hume’s website and displayed in all Hume branches at least 21 days prior to the meeting date.
Meeting notices will inform you about matters that will be considered at the meeting. Common matters considered at Hume’s Annual General Meeting include confirmation of the minutes of the prior years’ meeting, noting of the Annual Financial Reports of Hume, election of Directors and any proposed changes to Hume’s Constitution.
Attendance at meetings enables members to participate in the governance of Hume and to:
• Ask questions about the management of Hume, its financial standing and performance;
• Ask Hume’s auditor questions about the conduct of the audit and the preparation and content of the auditor's report; and
• Vote on any proposal to amend Hume’s Constitution or on any other matter in relation to the management of Hume.
If you are entitled to attend and cast a vote at a meeting, you may appoint a proxy to attend and vote on your behalf. Information on appointing a proxy is contained in Hume’s Constitution and included in meeting notices.
You may also choose to receive a copy of Hume’s Annual Financial Reports and / or Annual Members’ report (“annual reports”) via email or post at any time by contacting Hume on (02) 6051 3211. Copies are also made available via all Hume branches and on our website at www.humebank.com.au. These annual reports set out information about the financial position and performance of Hume, the efficiency with which Hume is being managed and the financial risks to which Hume is exposed.
If you have already given notice to Hume to receive these notices, your preference will have been recorded and won’t be changed unless you advise us to do so.
