As previously announced, our ILPOA Annual Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, October 10th at 1 p.m. In addition to a brief update regarding the association, the majority of the meeting will be focused on our Meet the Candidate Forum for the 2021 Board. Tremendous progress has been made over the past year and we are excited for everyone to hear from our prospective Board candidates on the experiences, skills, and expertise that they will bring to the table should they be elected to the 2021 ILPOA Board.
To ensure that as many people can participate in this important meeting, we are making some exciting changes to the meeting format. This year we will be live-streaming the meeting online via YouTube which will allow you to not only hear but see the candidates as if you were at the Community Center. The COVID pandemic has challenged us with the annual meeting as we are restricted to the number of people that can participate in person. As a result, we will be taking reservations for a limited number of seats at the Community Center. We encourage anyone that has computer access to use the live-stream if at all possible so those that do not have computer access can attend in person. More details to follow regarding the reservation process. Those attending in-person will be required to wear a mask to enter the building, during the meeting and until you exit the building.
As we have done in the past, we will have a candidate questionnaire that will allow each candidate the opportunity to respond to key issues that impact the future of our community. The responses will be sent out to all of our members via email, in addition to posting the information online. Copies will also be available at the ILPOA Office should you not have computer/internet access.
Because of the COVID limitations on the number of people attending in-person and the large number of people attending via the YouTube Live-Stream we are requesting that members pre-submit candidate questions via email (Indianlake@ilpoa.org) or drop them off at the ILPOA Office by not later than Tuesday, October 6th. You must be a Member in Good Standing with ILPOA to submit a question and also provide your name and which candidate(s) the question is directed. To be fair to all members we will be using pre-submitted questions for the Q&A portion of the meeting.
This year’s election is very important and the choices we make will have a significant impact on the current and future of ILPOA. We are encouraging as many members as possible to participate. With the addition of live-streaming the meeting, we’ve made it easier than ever to participate. Now it is up to you to make this meeting a priority.
If you have any questions you can email the ILPOA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org, call the office at 573-885-3630 or drop off your questions at the dropbox on the outside of the ILPOA Office.
