What is an SGM?

A Special General Meeting is a meeting held by companies and organisations for their membership. Certain decisions or choices made by an organisation often need the backing of its membership, thus a Special General Meeting is held. They are often required by law, or in our case, by our constitution. An SGM is held to inform  the members of previous and future activities and to discuss certain issues. It is an opportunity for the members to receive insight into the organisations activities of the past months and asking any questions regarding the directions the organisation will take in the future.

Do I have to attend?

Attendance is not compulsory, but if you’re interested in YSA, especially how we’re run, and what we do, then this is the perfect opportunity to see. If you are going to attend, then you do need to RSVP, as the SGM does require a minimum amount of people to be valid.

Is it just a room of people sitting around?


Does that make it boring?

No… YSA events are never boring. Not with YSA members around! Plus, afterwards its likely that many people will journey to lunch together.

I’m only new to YSA. Am I welcome at the SGM?

Every member is absolutely welcome at every YSA function, including our SGM. How long will it take? The SGM will most likely take about 1 and a half hours, give or take a bit. After the SGM, members are welcome to enjoy a meal together in a local restaurant/food court.

I’m still a tad bit confused, who do I talk to?

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out to any of your YSA Sydney Committee members or email the secretary directly at



[toggle title=”Proposed YSA Sydney Constitution for confirmation.” open=”false”]

We would like to involve our membership in collaboratively confirming the YSA Sydney Constitution that the NSW Department of Fair Trading will have on file for the organisation. This will allow for quicker and more efficient updates to the constitution by future YSA Sydney Committees.
