Special Member Meeting

June 22, 2020 - Virtual

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois was forced to cancel our in-person Annual Meeting that had been scheduled for March 28. We had anticipated moving our Annual Meeting to a virtual venue without delay, however, when the parliamentarian reviewed our bylaws it was determined that our current bylaws do not allow virtual Annual Meetings.

The Bylaws Committee passed an amendment that would allow us to have a virtual Annual Meeting and the Board approved it on May 11, 2020. Next, a Special Meeting of the Members will be held on June 22, with Board Members and Delegates convening through Zoom. Once the Amendment is passed by membership (with a two-thirds vote) we can proceed with having our Virtual Annual Meeting. See agenda.

The health and well-being of our communities are our top concern. Currently, southern Illinois is in Phase III of  Illinois’ COVID-19 plan, which recommends in-person events have 10 or fewer attendees. Therefore, we appreciate the efforts of our volunteers to help transition this year’s Annual Meeting to a virtual event.
