Notice of Results of EGM - 6 April, 2018 Sheba Nandkeolyar, AIBC National Chair’s Speech AIBC EGM - April 6, 2018

Dear AIBC member,

Over the past few weeks you have been hearing from me about the proposed constitutional amendments. These amendments were critical to AIBC becoming a more business-focussed and business-based council.

I am very pleased to share with you that the EGM held yesterday was a resounding success.

The AIBC members who were present at the EGM as well as the proxies received by the company secretary for those who were unable to attend showed overwhelming support for carrying forward the motions proposed.

AIBC has built a strong reputation as the only go-to bipartisan business council which facilitates trade and investment matters between Australia and India.

Our members have, through their approval, indicated a strong desire for AIBC to adopt a much sharper business focussed approach from 2018 onwards and in keeping with AIBC’s vision and reason for existence.

The message we have received from our members was loud and clear and AIBC stands committed to delivering on the promised business-focus.

The updated constitution will be uploaded on the AIBC website’s members portal by early next week.
