It is anticipated that the meeting will be approximately 45 minutes in duration.  Please note that a quorum of 21 members in attendance is required for the AGM to go ahead.

As time available is limited, no general business will be taken from the floor.  Members are welcome and encouraged to share their ideas for QEST’s future direction with the incoming committee members via email.  Please remember that members DO NOT need to wait until a general meeting to share their thoughts, correspondence via email or a phone call to representatives is always welcome.
