Make SURE that your Club’s Vote Counts!
Make sure your club’s votes count at the Council Meeting on the Saturday morning. Every Club President and Vice President Education’s attendance of the council meeting is part of the job! Unfortunately, there are often many of these club officers that are unable to attend the Council Meeting for various reasons, even though their attendance should be subsidised by their club.
A solution to this problem exists, because other club committee or club members who attend the Council Meeting can vote as the club’s proxies.
In order to ensure that your votes are carried by club members attending, you have to assign these using the Proxy Form below. The member that has been assigned proxy has to bring the signed form with them, and then register for the District 91 Council meeting with our District Parliamentarian, David Sutcliffe. This registration takes place in advance of the Council Meeting, so please make sure to allow time to register.
Remember, there is no fee to attend the Council Meeting, and your club should subsidise your attendance costs.
Simply put, don’t waste your vote or the opportunity to see your leaders.
For members that attend the Council Meeting, it’s great to report back to your fellow club members on outcomes of matters discussed.
