As discussed in the SEC Institute's One-Hour Briefing “COVID-19 Challenges for First Quarter 2020 Form 10-Q and Annual Meetings,” holding a virtual annual meeting involves both state and securities law considerations. If you are looking for example proxy statements for virtual annual meetings these two from Baxter International and Hub Group may be helpful.
Also, as an FYI, we are hearing about scheduling challenges as companies such as Computershare and Broadridge run out of capacity to accommodate the number of companies moving to virtual formats for their annual meetings.
As always, your thoughts and comments are welcome.
