The 23rd Annual AGM will be held via Zoom. If you are able to participate, please PRE-REGISTER online as soon as possible (see details below) so that we can ensure that we have the space necessary to accommodate everyone wishing to attend this meeting. There is no cost to attend this meeting.
Anyone unable to participate can vote with their proxy ballot. The deadline for receiving proxy votes is no later than midnight, May 21st, 2020. The proxy votes should be directed to email@example.com.
This is a new experience and a new platform for us. We are trying to figure it all out as quickly as possible, however there may be some technical issues that come up both before and during the meeting. Your patience while we work through this is greatly appreciated.
If you have not used Zoom before, you do not need to sign up with Zoom in order to participate in this meeting. Clicking on the link is all you will need to do. If you already have “Zoomed” however, it would be helpful to sign into your account in order to participate.
- YOU WILL NEED TO PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS MEETING PRIOR TO THE MEETING.
- Only Class A Members (Registered Practitioners and Registered Teachers) are permitted to participate in both the meeting and voting. Student Members and/or guests will not be approved.
Once your registration has been approved, you will receive a secondary email with a link to the meeting. From this point, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO ANYTHING UNTIL THE DAY OF THE MEETING.
On May 23rd, click on the link sent to you in the second email BEFORE the starting time so that you have everything ready to go when the meeting begins. Jodie will be online at least 15 minutes prior to the start getting everything ready and dealing with any potential problems that may come up.
We will be starting the meeting promptly at 1:00 EST.
As it stands right now, we are expecting this to be a “Zoom Meeting” where everyone will be able to be seen and heard. This could change prior to the meeting depending on the number of people who register.
When you come into the meeting, you will be asked to type in a name. We ask that you use both your first and last names. This will allow other members to know who you are, it will assist us in being able to tell the difference between two people with the same first name and it will help identify anyone who wishes to speak before the Board of Directors.
The voting will be handled using the Zoom polling option, allowing people to vote privately, and the computer will tabulate the results immediately. The results will be shared with the group directly after each motion.
We will also ask that your microphone is turned off during the meeting unless you are participating in the conversation. In doing so, it will minimize any background noise. A chat feature is available on the sidebar where comments can be made either to the entire group or to a specific person of your choosing. We will go over this once again at the beginning of the meeting. Once again, this is all very new to us; however, we are very excited to see how everything will unfold.
As always, if you have any questions about the meeting, please forward them to Jodie at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will do her best to answer them for you.
