Step by Step Guide on Virtual AGM Notification

 

Our AGM will be facilitated this year on Zoom.
In order to participate in our AGM please follow these simple instructions:
Step 1 Please register online via the link available HERE by close of business on 26th January 2022.

REGISTER NOW

 

Step 2 Based on the information you provide we will verify you as a member, and then you will be sent a formal invitation to the email address you provide in the registration process.

 

Step 3 In the invitation, we will include a link to a copy of the minutes of last year’s AGM and the Standing Orders for this Year’s AGM. Please read these before the meeting.

 

Step 4 Please submit questions to the Board of Directors in advance of the AGM, using the facility when you are registering or you can email us at info@blanchardstowncu.ie and the Board will endeavour to answer these at the meeting.  See the Standing Orders for details of how questions will be handled at the AGM.

 

Step 5 Log on to the AGM, by clicking on the link provided in the invitation you will receive by email.  We suggest you log on about 10 minutes before the start time of 7 pm on Monday 31st January 2022.

Step 6 It is important that you note the invitation you receive is specific to you and can only be used on one device.

 

(!) Please note the access link is unique to each member and acts as an identifier for the virtual AGM. We would ask that you do not share this access link with anyone else as only one person can use the same link to access the AGM meeting.

 

Step 7 When you log on you will be made aware that you are ‘waiting’. When the Chair starts the meeting you will be able to see and hear the meeting.  Please select “Join with Computer Audio”, so that you will be able to see and hear the Chair and any persons presenting.  We recommend that while you are waiting, you should use the opportunity to test the sound on your computer so you can be sure it’s working and at the right volume for you to follow the proceedings.

 

Step 8 For everyone’s comfort, all non-presenting participants will be ‘muted’ during the meeting. Please read the Standing Orders to be clear with how questions & answers will be handled.

 

Step 9 There are several items on the agenda where members will be asked to vote. This will be done by electronic polling.  A poll will appear on your screen, click on your answer and press submit. You will be given sufficient time to cast your vote (the length of time allowed will be advised at the meeting). The poll will close after that time and the result will be announced by the Chair.

 

Step 10 To assist with the minutes, our AGM will be recorded.  When the matters of the meeting are concluded, the Chair will end the AGM and close the Zoom link.

 

 

If you have any questions about the Virtual AGM, please contact us by email: info@blanchardstowncu.ie or call us on 01 820 3495

 

We look forward to welcoming our members, to our virtual AGM. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by moving our AGM online and look forward to our next AGM in person.
