2023 Member Information Session
On Friday, June 16, 2023 at 2pm EST, League staff will be hosting a member information session. This is an opportunity to connect directly with staff and ask questions or provide feedback about programs, services, and member benefits. This member information session has helped streamline our AGM as a business meeting, and connect directly with our membership in a more casual and friendly way!
Motions for the League’s AGMs must be submitted by writing to the League’s staff and Board of Directors a minimum of 60 days before any AGM. This ensures by-law and legal compliance and ensures members can be aware and available to participate in the meeting if the member motion is important to them.
Voting on Motions
Motions at each AGM will be passed using the polling feature in Zoom. Each motion will be presented to attendees, who will be able to vote Yes, No or Abstain for any Motion. We ask that Associate Members do not vote on motions at the AGM. Associate members cannot cast votes at the AGM per League by-laws. We instead invite Associate members to add their contributions verbally or in the chat feature.
