The issues discussed at company meetings may include: the appointment and removal of directors, auditors, accountants and/or company secretaries; distribution of dividends; change in the company's share capital and structure; discussion of impending projects of the company, etc. The main purpose of these meetings is for the members and directors to make decisions on issues affecting the affairs of the members and the progress of the company.
