Event description
The Nova Scotia College of Social Workers is holding a special meeting of members, so that future AGMs can be held virtually.

About this Event

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed and challenged how organizations operate and deliver core services. For the NSCSW, one of our important functions is to preserve the ability of our members to engage in democratic processes regarding the governance of the College.

This year the College successfully ran its first online Annual General Meeting. We were able to facilitate this meeting online because of the Emergency Management Act and the ongoing state of emergency; the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing declared that organizations could hold AGMs virtually regardless of whether their bylaws allowed for electronic voting or not.

Planning has already begun for our 2021 conference and AGM. Given that we will still be living with COVID-19 next year, we are planning for these events to take place online.

To ensure that the online AGM is able to include online voting, the Council of our College has called for a special meeting to take place while the Emergency Management Act and the minister’s declaration still grant us the ability to meet and vote digitally. There will be a single motion: to amend the College by-laws and make necessary provisions for future general meetings to be held virtually.

This special meeting is open to all members of the NSCSW, including retired and student members. However, you still need to register on Eventbrite to receive the login details of the online meeting. During registration you must enter your NSCSW registration number accurately to confirm that your membership is in good standing and you are eligible to vote.

We are using an application called Zoom to facilitate this meeting. You do not need an account to use Zoom, but we recommend downloading the free application to your computer or mobile device and testing it at least one day before the online event.
