2019 Fall Business Meeting

Call to Council

To:  District Steering Committee, Area Directors, Club Presidents, Club Vice Presidents of Education,

Your presence is needed at our Fall Business Meeting on Saturday, September 21, 2019.  This meeting will be District 1’s second virtual business meeting and it is critical for you to be present and vote on four items.  All Club Presidents and VPEs, District Steering Committee members, and Area Directors need to be present at the beginning of the virtual session.  No proxy can be accepted on your behalf.  Your attendance is of great importance in order to conduct business as we must reach the required number of officers to have a quorum.  More specific details will be sent later in the month.

Attendance at the Business Meeting is FREE.  Since it is virtual, you can attend via your computer or via phone.   Below is the agenda including the four items that need your vote for approval.

Scheduled Call to Order:  9 am
District 1 Business Meeting from 9 – 10:30 am (may end earlier based on discussion and voting)

Agenda Items
State of District Address and reports from Steering Committee members and Audit Chair.
  • Ratification of appointed 2019-2020 District Officers
  • Approval of the 2019 Spring Business Meeting Minutes
  • Approval of the District 1 Alignment including recently added new clubs
  • Adoption of 2019-2020 District 1 Budget

All of the reports will be made available to you two weeks prior to the Business meeting on September 7, 2019. To make the best use of our time at this virtual meeting, we ask that you review documents early. If needed, email questions to info@district1toastmasters.orgno later than September 14, 2019, so that we can review and be prepared for discussion on September 21.

Since a quorum is necessary for this vote to be valid, it is important for you to be present at the business meeting.  If you are not familiar with being a participant in a virtual meeting, we will be providing online training so all Presidents, VPE and other leaders can be ready to attend the virtual business meeting.  Thank you in advance.
