Q

Hi, please help me! An owner has called a special general meeting (SGM) tonight to increase the number of trustees from two to five (financial year end is June).

I have three questions:

#1 Can she give her proxy to her father who is a non-resident or owner?

#2 Can he vote on her behalf?

#3 Can he stand as a trustee?
