Important Information for the 2020 AGM 

Registration was required for this meeting  

To ensure that we were able to discuss and vote on Motions at the AGM, we required registration for all members in advance of the AGM. This was to ensure that everyone in our meeting is appropriate and authorized to cast votes in the organization.  

Voting on Motions

Motions at the AGM were passed using the polling feature in Zoom. Each motion was presented to attendees, who had the option of voting Yes, No or Abstain for any Motion.

Webinar Meeting

With an exceptional number of attendees at the AGM, we hosted this 2020 meeting as a webinar. This means that not all participants were visible on video or able to speak on-mic for the majority of the meeting. We asked that all comments, questions, and need for clarification be requested via text in the chat or Q&A sections in Zoom.

Associate Member Participation  

Associate members of the League were welcome to attend the AGM and to discuss all motions on the table. However, Associate members were not able to cast votes at the AGM.  

Adding a Motion to our AGM Agenda

Every member who registered for the AGM was given the opportunity to ask questions through chat during our meeting.
