2023 Annual Parish Meeting Eligibility Requirements and Zoom Info
All Saints Episcopal Church, Fort Lauderdale will hold our Annual Parish Meeting on Zoom on January 29, 2023, at 4:00 p.m.
Annual Parish Meeting Voting Requirements
To be eligible to have voice and vote at the annual meeting, according to the bylaws of our parish, all of the following conditions must be met:
- You must be an active, confirmed member of the Parish, with your official membership residing at All Saints Episcopal Church, and be “regular in their attendance at services.” Given the virtual format of our services in the pandemic, we will assume these active members meeting the other requirements are attending livestream worship services on some regular basis.
- You must be at least sixteen (16) years of age.
- You must be a Pledging (2023) member of record to the Parish OR have made a stated monetary contribution of record to the Parish [within the past twelve (12) months].
If you would like to confirm your eligibility prior to the meeting, please contact Michael Lee, our Parish Administrator, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in the office at 954-467-6496 (Mon-Thurs).
Zoom Registration Request
Those who are eligible to vote under these requirements may submit a registration request for the Zoom webinar at https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_FXvKzVeNSp-aaU18uXBT9A (This link will be available on the website)
After eligibility is confirmed by the Parish Administrator, the registration will be accepted. This confirmation process may take 24-72 hours. Thank you for your patience.
Once eligibility is confirmed, the voter will then be emailed their login credentials and instructions for the Zoom webinar.
Only those registered, active members will be given login credentials for Zoom. PLEASE do not share these credentials with others.
Note: voting members should register individually and login on separate devices for the meeting. This will allow each member to vote.
The meeting will be in a webinar format. This will mean that registered attendees will not be on video. Only the presenters will appear on screen. Attendees will have the opportunity to raise their hands (virtually!) to be recognized to activate microphone to speak. Voting will take place directly in the Zoom app through their poll function.
Again, please note, you must be registered for the meeting and logged into Zoom on January 29 to comment or vote. Those on the livestream will not be able to vote even if they are eligible according to the requirements outlined above.
