Tim Rutherford, Secretary
Dated at Peterborough, Ontario, this 29th day of March, 2023
We encourage all members to fill out the vote by proxy form included in the Notice of Meeting package, even if you are planning to attend, in the event that you encounter any technical issues or are unexpectedly unable to make the meeting! This helps us ensure we have quorum.
Note: You will need to download the form before filling it in; otherwise, it won’t save your information! It can also be printed out, filled in, and scanned.

How the Meeting Will Be Conducted Virtually


The Annual General Meeting will run as a Zoom webinar. As a webinar attendee, you will be muted, and your camera will not be visible. You will be able to submit questions in the Q&A and send messages to others through the Chat function.
To ensure a smooth and orderly meeting, we ask that everyone reads and adheres to the following processes and best practices:
  • When you arrive at the virtual webinar, you will be asked to type your full name into the chat to record your attendance, as this is how quorum will be determined.
  • On a computer or mobile app: click the Chat speech bubble on the bottom bar and begin typing.
  • To ease the flow of the conversation, board directors will be moving and seconding motions. We will be using a consent agenda, where it will be assumed that all members attending are voting in favour of each motion unless an objection to the motion is made. The Chair will ask and leave time for anyone to respond with any questions or objections for each motion – please use the chat function to register an objection.
During the webinar, we will have a staff member reachable through the chat function or by email ([email protected]) should you need help troubleshooting technology! If you have any questions beforehand about how the meeting will work, please get in touch.
