To all members of the Cornwall and District Branch:
The national board of directors has advised all branches, that there should be no “in-person” annual general meetings until 2021. The board passed a resolution deeming all branch by-laws have additional provisions to deal with the current situation. For example, by-laws include a provision that allows for the branch to dispense with holding an annual general meeting in 2020, and any position up for election is automatically extended to 2021.
Consequently, the annual meeting scheduled for September 9, 2020, at the Cornwall Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, is cancelled. At this time no decision has been made as to the date of the 2021 Annual General Meeting. Most likely it will be in early May 2021. We will inform you once a decision is made.
A consequence of these changes is that at our annual general meeting in 2021, all of the executive positions will be up for election.
We will endeavour to have a guest speaker to discuss travel insurance. If there is any other topic you would like to see addressed, please advise a member of the executive.
In the mean time, the executive will continue to carry out the functions of their positions and the branch will continue to operate as usual.
My message to each and every one of you is to stay safe, listen and follow the directive from our health and government officials, wear a mask in public and do not take unnecessary risks and together we will get through this seemingly never ending pandemic.
