CHS-MC Annual General Meeting (AGM) - New Date & Delivery
The AGM this year will be held on Tuesday April 28th at 6:00 pm. This meeting will be a video conference via Zoom. Chapter committees have been using Zoom for meetings for the past year. We will send out the log-in information to members a week before the meeting. You can access this meeting via your computer, tablet or phone. If you want to test your ability to log into Zoom, contact the office and we will set up a test meeting so you can try it in advance of April 28th.
The meeting will include a presentation of the Annual Report. We will review the 2019 Financial Statements and the 2020 budget. We will be electing a new slate of officers and appoint an auditor for the ensuing year.
CHS-MC wants to be representative of all the different types of members that we serve. We currently need representation on the Board of Directors from Chapter families with children in the pediatric program, members with Von Willebrand Disease and women with inherited bleeding disorders. We are always looking for new Board members to keep the organization relevant with new ideas and fresh perspectives.
CHS-MC is a grass-roots, volunteer run organization. We rely on volunteers to sit on the Board of Directors as well as the Chapter’s committees. Have you ever thought of running for a position? If you worry that you don’t have any experience being a Board Director, we provide support and training to develop our Board members. Your commitment is to attend the Board meetings (about five times a year) and we ask Board members to participate on the committee of their choice. The committee you choose may reflect your particular bleeding disorder, interest, or time availability. We offer new Directors some time to learn about all of our working committees and what they do before requiring a choice be made. Please have a look at Board Volunteer Job Descriptions for more information about the different roles. Please call the office or email us if you have any questions.
