For all CIA members

Webcast of the General Business Session of the 2017 CIA Annual Meeting

The General Business Session (GBS) of the Annual Meeting is always open to all CIA members to attend, regardless of whether they are registered for the Annual Meeting. Due to geographic location, it is not always possible for members from across Canada to do so.

For the first time, we are offering a complimentary live webcast of the GBS, which takes place during the Annual Meeting in Québec City, on Wednesday, June 21 from 7:45–9:00 a.m. EDT. Please note that webcast participants may ask questions or provide comments in writing; however, no online voting on the motions presented will be available. Members who are eligible to, and who are interested in voting on the Bylaw changes related to CIA public statements, should do so via proxy, by June 19, in accordance with the instructions circulated in previous CIA announcements.

We are conducting this webcast as a pilot initiative to assess interest in potentially moving the GBS to a 100 percent virtual format. Naturally, should we choose to move to this model in the future, the capacity to vote on all motions would be available.

Recognizing that the 7:45 a.m. GBS webcast start time will be early for west coast members, a recorded version and transcript will be available after the live event. (Note that you must be logged in to the members’ site to access the recording.) Should the GBS move permanently to a webcast format, it would be scheduled at an appropriate time to allow participation from across the country.

We hope that members will find this webcast of interest and look forward to your feedback.
