    Hi if a directors meeting is called for 1 of August but it isn't convenient for 50% of the board how far can they reasonably put it back ? Is 30 days acceptable ?

    My opinion would be that what is reasonable is a date that suits everyone.

    What if any date that is proposed is repeatedly (and maybe deliberately) inconvenient?

    A Director has a legal obligation to do what is right for the company and that would include attending meetings... even if it is inconvenient.

    Probably a date when everyone can make it within reason say 28 days

    Then sufficient notice will normally be given and some directors attend.

    As long as you have a quorum you don't need them all to be present and they can nominate someone to place their vote for them

    An AGM is not a Directors' Meeting. It is a meeting of the shareholders, although clearly the Directors do normally attend. Does it say anything in the company's Articles of Association about the AGMs?
