Division 1 - Who may call meetings of members  


252C(1)   [ Members may call meeting]  

Members with more than 50% of the votes carried by interests held by the members who make a request under section 252B may call and arrange to hold a meeting of the scheme's members and distribute the statement (if any) if the responsible entity does not do so within 21 days after the request is given to the responsible entity.

252C(2)   [ Distribution of information]  

The meeting must be called and the statement is to be distributed in the same way - so far as is possible - in which meetings of the scheme's members may be called by the responsible entity and information is distributed to members by the responsible entity. The meeting must be held not later than 3 months after the request is given to the responsible entity.

252C(3)   [ Register of members]  

To call the meeting the members requesting the meeting may ask the responsible entity under section 173 for a copy of the register of members. Despite paragraph 173(3)(b), the responsible entity must give the members requesting the meeting the copy of the register without charge.

252C(4)   [ Expenses]  

The responsible entity must pay the reasonable expenses the members incurred because the responsible entity failed to call and arrange to hold the meeting and to make the distribution (if any). The responsible entity must not pay those expenses from the scheme's assets.

252C(5)   [ Strict liability offence]  

An offence based on subsection (3) or (4) is an offence of strict liability.

Note: For strict liability , see section 6.1 of the Criminal Code .
