Like every organization, WICOLA must make changes dealing with the COVID-19 situation. The annual meeting and elections are one of those changes. The WICOLA board sent out a poll to our members outlining five options ranging from business as usual, abbreviation meetings, to no meeting. Many of you responded and provided our board with your thoughts. We appreciate your input.
Your WICOLA board decided we will hold our August 6th Annual Meeting using an online or phone call-in format. You can call in by phone or log in on-line. Handouts will be available to download before the meeting. Our speaker, Dr. Euan Reavie, Senior Research Associate, will be providing a program online for the meeting. Elections will be held by mail. The following form is like what we will used for elections. We will soon be providing more information on how to log on by phone, internet, and to download exhibits and handouts. We will send out more information closer to the August 6th date. Voting Proxies will be sent out by U.S. Mail.
