This is the meeting where the board reviews the year-ending and seeks the membership’s approval of the next year’s proposed budget.
The meeting will take place on Zoom and the budget vote will take place online.

Here is some important housekeeping information:

  1. This meeting will be recorded. 
  2. Your video and audio will be turned off upon joining the webinar. You will only be able to see the panelists. The panelists will not be able to hear or see you.
  3. Ensure your Zoom screen name reflects how you would like to be identified. As a reminder, a quorum of members is required to vote on the budget so your screen name should be accurate.
  4. As an attendee, please only use the Chat feature to ask questions. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE Q&A AS THIS WILL NOT BE MONITORED.
  5. Questions will be addressed in the following way:
    • A 15-minute Q&A session will be reserved for the end of the meeting.
    • Attendees are able to submit questions throughout the meeting using the CHAT feature. Submitted questions will be moderated by the host during the meeting and will be grouped by similar topics.
    • At the end of the meeting, the host will read the groups of questions for the panelists to answer. Please note, especially when it comes to finances, some questions may require additional research and the answer may not be readily available – these questions will be answered by the board in a follow-up email in the days following the meeting.
    • Due to time constraints and to be respectful of everyone’s time, we may not be able to answer every question. We apologize in advance and will follow-up with answers to those questions in the days following the meeting.

Thank you for your participation & cooperation!
