Does a Chairman Need to be Appointed for the Shareholder Meeting?

A shareholder meeting will usually be chaired by a chairperson and for logistical reasons of organising and presiding over the meeting, it is usually sensible to have a chairperson. The articles will set out the procedure for appointing a chairperson and the powers that the chairperson has, e.g. whether the chairperson has a casting vote. If the articles are silent, the shareholders at the meeting should choose one of their numbers to chair the meeting.
