Frequently Asked Questions
Who should attend?
Club presidents, vice presidents of education, and district executive committee members (Area & Division Directors).
Are proxies allowed?
No proxies are allowed at virtual business meetings. All Club Presidents, VP’s of Education and our DEC are required to attend. District executive committee members are entitled to one vote and may cast up to two additional votes as a club president or vice president education. All other members of the district council shall be limited to a maximum of two votes.
What is Quorum?
Quorum is required to vote in our 2020-2021 District Leaders and more. To reach quorum, 1/3 of eligible club votes (not DEC votes) must be represented. District 57 has 151 clubs and 303 eligible votes. To meet quorum 101 eligible club votes must be represented without proxies. If quorum is not met , there will be an additional online voting period post-meeting.
Why is this meeting virtual rather than in-person?
Toastmasters International decided on March 14th that all Area, Division and District events before June 1st, including our Annual Business Meeting, must be conducted virtually to ensure the safety of our members around the globe. Additional online business meeting guidelines were provided on April 11th which required all candidates to notify the DLC Chair atleast 1 week before the business meeting, mandated that a District Candidate Showcase must take place and also required an Online Candidate Corner.
