Why are we going virtual?
While we’ll miss seeing our members in person at our Annual Summer meeting this year, a virtual meeting will allow for broader participation and will ensure the health and safety of our attendees.
With the ability for folks to tune in from their home or office, there is expanded opportunity for people to participate. Another benefit – this meeting will have no cost registration!
About the Meeting
We’re planning an engaging discussion about the impact COVID-19 will have on our food supply and local farmers. We hope to wrap up the presentation with breakout room discussions and come back for Q&A with our speaker. This will be followed by a SNEC membership meeting, in which we will announce the FY 2020-21 Board of Directors election results.
Members should look for their electronic ballots to be distributed mid-May. We’ll also send out paper ballots if this method is preferable, just choose a medium and cast your votes!
A link to registration will be posted soon – the meeting will take place over Zoom in late June 2020. We look forward to seeing you then!
SNEC SWCS is allowing online voting for the FY20-21 Board of Directors Election per our change of bylaws, enacted in 2019. Online voting will allow for quick and simple participation! We will also send out paper ballots to all members, for those who prefer this method. Members should receive a personalized link to their online ballot via email.* If a member sends in both a paper ballot and votes electronically, the first ballot received will be counted.
Biographies for BOD candidates are included in the ballot packet linked below. All members are eligible to vote for all candidates. Position Descriptions are available here.
You may write in a candidate; self-nominations are welcome. Candidates must be SNEC members in good standing and committed to participating. Please notify Renee Bouldin, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org of write-in candidates, so that the ballot posted can be updated and members notified.
*Are you a member and didn’t receive a digital ballot? Please take a moment to send your name and correct mailing address to email@example.com. This will ensure that you continue to receive up to date information.
