Technical, legal and financials are three distinct subjects and I do not find it exaggerated if an organisation would like to have a three-member representative to speak on these subjects individually during the AGMM.

If you have a group representative, it should speak with one voice. They may discuss amongst themselves what that one voice will say, but there should be a designated spokesman.

Anything else is an opportunity for either chaos or overrepresentation.

Or even obtain the injunctions necessary to get a court ruling on the matter prior to allowing the meeting to proceed in such a way.

Almost certainly, the short notice of this change was a deliberate act by the board to pervert the course of justice.
