The Group Chief Executive of the WRU, Roger Lewis, told delegates that the improvement of community rugby facilities was now a clear priority which would drive forward participation levels in the sport.
He also pinpointed a wider brief of improving the health and wellbeing of communities across Wales in partnership with rugby.
A new strategy will be defined for rugby in schools and colleges which, delegates were told, has proved elusive in the past.
Roger Lewis declared: "This year we must all keep close and share our problems together in a friendly manner and I am confident we have the resources to take us forward.
"As we enter our 130th year I sincerely hope the WRU continues to be united around the goal of placing Wales at the forefront of world rugby."
WRU Chairman, David Pickering, added: "This has been a good year for the Union in which we have achieved significant success which can take us forward to the Rugby World Cup."
Important changes to the constitution of the WRU were voted through by delegates at the AGM which took place at the Vale Resort, Hensol in the Vale of Glamorgan.
Delegates voted in favour of the four Regions having the right to secure investment direct from outside individuals and companies in the future.
In a separate AGM debate the structure for discussion and decision-making between the Regions and the WRU set in place by the new Participation Agreement was outlined to delegates.
They were told that the discussions progress monthly through a Management Board which includes senior representatives of the WRU and representatives from each of the four Regions along with the Regional Rugby Wales organisation.
Below the Management Board stands a Rugby Management Board which also includes senior representation from the Union, the Regions and RRW and exclusively debates Regional issues.
There is also representation for the Regions on the Union's game policy committee and representation on the main European Rugby Cup and Celtic League boards.
Delegates then voted overwhelmingly in favour of removing the Regions' right to appoint a Director to the Board of the WRU with 207 votes for and seven against.
