Members Meetings 101: Avoiding Members’ Machinations
November 26th - 1PM EST
Presenter: Jackie Demczur
Join Jacqueline Demczur for a one hour webinar to review the difficult issues arising from members’ meetings and how to effectively resolve them. Building upon the presentation on October 1, 2015, on Getting Ready 101: Considerations Before Calling a Board or Members’ Meeting, this presentation addresses issues and difficult scenarios at members’ meetings. The new rules on non-profit governance under the new federal and Ontario not-for-profit corporate legislation also affect how these issues should be addressed. Some examples of issues include: can members vote by proxy and how, what to do if no quorum is achieved, can the chair of the meeting vote, what if the board chair has a conflict and cannot chair members’ meetings, when to appoint an independent third person to chair members’meetings, etc.
This webinar is one in a four part series!
