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.
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.
