Tesla has decided to make the stockholder meeting and battery day on September 22, 2020, mainly virtual. Because of the ongoing health concerns and restrictions, the events as planned had to be changed.
Tesla is not the first to switch its Annual Stockholder Meeting to a virtual event. I recently attended the Fastned Annual Stockholder Meeting from my home. It was an excellent meeting with ample opportunity for interaction with the board and management.
When used properly, it can add to the value of the Annual Meeting. And I have no doubt Tesla will find ways to use the opportunities an online event offers. The first is voting and asking questions from stockholders worldwide.
