What if you are the Company secretary of the HKICPA?
How many of you have attended the EGM of the Hong Kong Institute of CPAs? Don’t you wish you can attend the meeting on March 2, 2018 at 7:00 pm without physically going to the meeting site? With over 20,000 members, you need a Hung Hum Stadium to house all the members. But the EGM will be held at HKICPA’s office meeting room? How many people can fit in to the seminar room? What happens when a member comes to the meeting without a proxy but cannot get in to vote? Can he sue the Meeting Administrator for gross negligence (He should have known that a 300-capacity room cannot fit in 20,000+ members but he still go ahead and do it)? What if this important EGM were indeed allows online participation with voting capability and real time viewing of documents and presentations, would you attend? The development of Company123 is based on the believe that we should allow all to participate, even though in different places, using the best technology available.
