A problem or situation facing the company is discussed with a possible solution. The management generates a discussion on the suggestion to know its merits. We have scheduled a meeting of the Subcommittee on Special Education to discuss your child's educational needs. Your participation in this meeting is very important and you are encouraged to attend. As a member of the Committee, you have a right to participate in discussions and decisions about the identification, evaluation and educational placement of your child. The meeting has been scheduled for the following date, time and location. It can also be a legal requirement for public bodies. Regardless of how the notice is publicized, it should include specific information so that the notice is clear. Any other general meeting is known as an extraordinary general meeting (EGM). The directors of the company can call an EGM whenever they wish, but they can also be forced generally to call one if 5% of shareholders request it. The main purpose of the annual meeting is to appoint new directors, so if they directors are staying the same a lot of smaller corporations will just not hold an annual meeting.
