Fall Members’ Meeting
Sunday, November 29, 2020 / 15:00 - 18:00
The aim of this meeting is to reach closure in the subject discussions at the AGM held in the beginning of the month. Since these include changes and improvements to the OHCC By-Laws†, it is imperative to see a great participation on the members’ part so that the resolutions would carry proper weight.
The Board will send the detailed subjects and choices requiring voting to the members by email‡.
The BOD cannot and will not accept or process any membership payments within 72 hours prior to the meeting. Therefore, we urge you to ensure your voting right by renewing in a timely fashion**.
Obeying the meeting restrictions in effect, this event will be held by the means of video-conferencing. Members who do not have the necessary resources to join the video-conference can participate in person at OHCC within the limits allowed by the safety measures. We ask these members to notify us in time by any means available to them.
We will project the virtual meeting on the large screen in the main hall while broadcasting the local scene to the virtual participants. The software platform of the virtual meeting will be Google Meet, which requires each participant to use of a valid Gmail address. Detailed, step-by-step instructions to get one and how to use Google Meet are available on the help page.

To start the meeting on time we ask you to join at least 15 minutes early by first clicking on the internet address in the email. Wait for a new screen to appear, then mute your microphone, and click on the “Ask to join” button. Once the host of the meeting lets you in, please send a chat message within Google Meet about what other participating members are with you in front of your computer.
