Tuesday, June 15
Where: Delegate Check-in is via a Zoom meeting. Delegate Check-in Zoom Meeting link: https://zoom.us/j/98313085305
When: Tuesday, June 15 from 9:00AM – 9:00PM CENTRAL daylight time (Houston TX time). The Zoom meeting will be open for 12 hours.
All delegates MUST log in to the Delegate Check-in Zoom meeting and be personally checked-in by one of the meeting hosts (Shelly Borawski, Amber Goodright or Allene Tartaglia). This is not an automated process and it requires you to participate in a Zoom meeting. It should take only 5-10 minutes of a delegate’s time. The Zoom meeting will be “manned” for 12 hours and we will be on standby waiting for you to log in. This is NOT an automated process. Delegates must actually speak with someone in the Zoom meeting to “check-in”.
ANNUAL MEETING ROLL CALL
Friday, June 18
Where: Each club’s delegate, who previously checked in as a delegate on Tuesday, will receive a personalized email from the Central Office on Thursday. The email will contain TWO links – one will be a personalized link is to access the roll call and voting webpage. The voting webpage is stand alone and separate from the Zoom Virtual Annual meeting. The voting webpage does not require Zoom. The other link will be for the official Zoom meeting for the Annual.
When: Roll Call starts at 7:00AM CENTRAL daylight time.
A club is considered “present and voting” only when the Roll Call question is answered via the online ballot. The determination of a quorum, and the ability to conduct business, will be determined by delegate participation in the Roll Call question between 7:00AM-9:00AM Central Daylight time.
The Annual Meeting is scheduled to start at 9:00AM Central time on Friday. There will be brief opening remarks by the President and Parliamentarian. Discussion and voting on amendments and resolutions will commence shortly thereafter. There are no live reports.
If you have any questions, please contact Amber Goodright, email@example.com.
Three tutorials are now available covering delegate check-in, Zoom basics and etiquette for the Annual, and online voting.
Even if you attended one of the practice sessions, it would be a good idea to review what you learned.
Cheryl Coleman is preparing the 2021 Memorial slide show honoring CFA cat fanciers who have passed from June 15, 2019 through June 6, 2021. It will be shown during the Virtual Annual on June 18.
Please send no more than 3 GOOD photos of each person, to Cheryl Coleman, firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 5, 2021. Please provide names for the person in the photo.
The final version of the Amendments and Resolutions for the upcoming Annual Meeting have been published.
You can find the full PDF document containing all the proposals, but you may also view each proposal individually and participate in discussion forums by visiting the Amendments and Resolutions table of contents page, and selecting the proposal you would like to view/discuss.
Has your club paid their dues and submitted a membership list yet?
Did your club vote for Director-at-Large (DAL) yet?
How about submitting delegate info so your club can vote on the soon-to-be-published, twenty-three (23!) pre-noticed amendments and resolutions for this year’s Virtual Annual?
If not…why not?
During the month of May, there will be fifteen (15) Zoom, one-hour sessions hosted by CFA so you can practice Zooming (raise your hand, lower your hand, mute, unmute, etc.) and get the general feel of what it will be like to actually attend the Virtual Annual on June 18. View the practice session schedule.
Don’t miss out on voting for DAL and discussing and voting on this year’s amendments and resolutions.
Starting on May 11, there will be a number of practice sessions available to prepare for the Annual Meeting.
There are multiple dates and times available – you are welcome to attend any of the advertised sessions, and attend as often as you like.
Emails with links to vote online were sent earlier this morning to club secretaries of those clubs eligible to vote in this year’s election for Directors-At-Large. Only clubs in good standing as of February 1, 2021 will receive the email with personalized links specific to the club.
