ONLINE MEETING INSTRUCTIONS:
We strongly suggest that you log in via computer as opposed to calling in. You can choose to activate your camera or not. If you do log in, please make sure that you enter your name, so that we can see who is in attendance.
Please note that given the large number of meeting attendees, all participants will be automatically muted upon joining the meeting.
The executive will start presenting promptly at 7:05pm.
After all presentations are completed, the membership can ask questions and/or make statements for 2 minutes at a time.
In order to get in the queue to speak, please press the "participants button" in the menu bar at the bottom of the onscreen zoom menu. In the participants menu you will see an option to "raise hand," and once pressed, a blue hand will appear next to your name.
The moderator will unmute members, in order, for their 2-minute timeframe. Once two minutes are up, the member will be placed back on mute while the question is being addressed.
To "raise your hand" via phone, press *9 on your dial pad.
VOTING FOR MOTIONS:
The motions will be put to the membership via onscreen poll that will allow you to vote via, yes, no or abstain buttons.
If you are calling in by phone, we encourage you to submit a PDF or online proxy form in advance. If you are not able to submit in advance it IS possible to vote for each motion over the phone. Once each motion is read aloud, to vote yes, raise your hand by pressing *9.
All virtual "hands" will be lowered after the vote for each individual motion is tallied.
We will go over these instructions again at the start of the meeting.
Please be patient and courteous and we will do our best to make sure that everyone who has something to contribute is heard.
