Annual membership meeting—November 17
By Nancy McCoy | October 16, 2020 | All members
You are invited to the Care Providers of Minnesota virtual annual membership meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, November 17, 2020.
This virtual gathering offers the opportunity to hear from our leaders in the Association about the current status and future plans after almost a full year of focusing the majority of our work on COVID-19 mitigation. We also take care of Association business for approving the proposed dues resolution; bylaw changes; and the election for the 2021 Board of Directors. Even though we cannot be together in person this year, we hope you will join us at this meeting virtually!

Here is what you need to know about credentialing and voting:
Due to the limited time during the meeting for the voting and tabulating the votes, we must expedite the credentialing process. Once we have you on the credentialed list, during the meeting you will receive a personal link to cast your vote(s). If you are under the umbrella of one of our multi-facility members, we will be contacting you under a separate email to determine if you will be voting individually or if your corporate office will be placing the votes on behalf of your building.
The credential form is posted on the “Annual Membership Meeting” page of our website, which you will need to fill out to be eligible to vote for your organization. Remember to register for the annual meeting to receive the voting credentials and then fill out the credentialling form to be able to receive the electronic ballot once the meeting starts. All the materials for this meeting are posted on “Annual Membership Meeting” page
. Materials include the following:
- 2019 annual meeting minutes
- 2021 budget (as approved by the Board of Directors)
- Proposed dues resolution
- Proposed bylaw amendments
- Proposed changes in the voting rules
- Slate of nominees
- Supporting materials for each nominee who has been nominated to represent you on the 2021 Board of Directors
Also note that according to Article VII, Section 3 (a. and b.) of the association’s bylaws:
Nominations by petition of at least ten (10) members shall be delivered to the Nominating Committee at least ten (10) days prior to the annual meeting and/or election of officers and directors of the Corporation, and then be added to the ballot. Nominations may be accepted from the floor at the time of the annual meeting at which the election takes place.
We look forward to “seeing” you at the annual membership meeting on Tuesday, November 17.
