Location: Your home
Although it is not possible for us to meet in person we decided we miss you all so much that we'd like to meet via phone!! Join us if you can at 7:00 pm. We ask that, while listening, you keep your phone on mute as the background noise will disrupt the person that is talking. You may, of course, un-mute your phone if you have input during any conversation. We will, at the end of the meeting, go person to person to see if there is anything you would like to offer or have a brag to report.
The board authorizes participation by remote communication . When you join the meeting you will notify "the corporation" you are participating in the meeting by announcing your name.You may also RSVP by toggling the "switch" at the bottom of this announcement page or contact the secretary.
If you have an item you'd like to talk/hear about please send it to me (Betsy) and I will put it on the agenda. thank you all for your support, hope you can join us! See instructions below.
Dial-in and disconnect times and phone numbers are recorded by the conference call provider and will be provided to the secretary to make preparation of the minutes easier
Please call in on time - it is disruptive to have calls come in during the meeting. We'll try to start the call 5 minutes or so early.
Expect to be prompted to identify yourself when you dial in so we know who is there.
Understand that you are not technically attending the meeting - the AKC does not recognize telephone presence in meetings of regional clubs, so you don't count towards the Quorum of the meeting, and you are not able to vote. Physical presence at the meeting is always preferable.
The dial-in number is (515) 604-9900 - this may be toll from your phone, it is your responsibility to check or call from a phone with unlimited long distance. The conference access code is 803639.
These calls will be set up for all meetings, regular and board, for a trial period - if they work well, they will continue indefinitely.
