Step-by-Step Guide on Virtual AGM Notification
Our 54th AGM will be facilitated once again 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 at https://www.blanchardstowncu.ie/virtual-AGM/
by Thursday, 7th December 2023. Once you register, you will receive an email from us to confirm
receipt of your registration form.
Please note – Every member who wishes to attend must register individually, this is to facilitate one member, one vote. Each member must use an email specific to them, not one shared by another member. Each member will receive their own AGM invite. You should use an email that you can access on the evening of the AGM.
Step 2 Based on the information you provide; we will verify you as a member.
Step 3 You will be sent an email invitation to the email address you provide in the registration
process in the days leading up to the AGM. Please check your SPAM folder as Zoom Invitations can
often go to SPAM.
Step 4 To that same email address you provide, as part of your registration, you will receive an
Attendee Pack that includes details of the minutes of the 53rd AGM and any motions and election
details for our 54th AGM. We would ask you to take some time to review the pack ahead of the AGM.
Step 5 If you would like to submit a question you can do so as part of the AGM registration process.
You can also submit a question up until the close of business on Thursday, 7th December 2023 by
email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will endeavour to answer these questions at the AGM.
Step 6 On the evening of the 12th of December, you will be able to access the AGM by clicking on
the link provided in your Zoom invitation email. The meeting will start at 7 pm and you will be able
to join us in the waiting room from 6.45 pm.
Step 7 It is important that you note the invitation you receive is specific to you and can only be used
on one device.
Please note – For every member eligible to attend the AGM in a household who wishes to attend the AGM, they will need to register individually to attend and in order to have their vote cast and counted they will need to view the AGM on a separate device (PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone). You will be sent an email invitation to attend the AGM a few days before the AGM. Please do not share this link with anyone else as this is how you access the AGM and vote on election matters. One member – One email address – one AGM link – one device – one vote
Step 8 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 9 For everyone’s comfort, all non-presenting participants will be ‘muted’ during the meeting.
Step 10 As with a traditional face-to-face AGM, members will be asked to propose and second
matters on the agenda. This can be done using the Raise Hand function on Zoom. Those who
propose and second will be identified and called out as part of the AGM and noted in the minutes
of the AGM.
Step 11 There are 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, you will be invited to make your selection/
selections 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 once votes are counted.
