Hello 100WWCC Members,
We hope that you and your families are well. Our second quarter meeting for 2022 starts now! We looking forward to making a difference to a local charity.
Our donations to date are over $120,000! What a difference you have made to the Caledon community!
Our May meeting will be virtual. We have decided to continue with the virtual meeting model for May, but hope to be in person beginning in September. We will continue to offer a Zoom meeting for members to attend if they would like an opportunity to hear the nominated charities make a brief presentation.
Zoom Charity Presentations and Q&A
We hope that you will consider participating in our Q&A with the nominated charities. Having the opportunity to hear what the nominated charity has to say and having the option of asking a question is informative. The meeting length is usually approximately 30 minutes. Our Zoom Charity presentation and Q&A will take place on Monday May 23 at 7:30. This is an optional meeting for those who would like to have the opportunity to ask the nominated charities a question and to hear what the charity is all about. We will continue to hold the remainder of our meeting in the same format as previous meetings, with written appeals being emailed to members and voting done via email. The Zoom meeting will offer an optional enhancement.
We understand that the internet is not reliable for all of our members. To address this, there will be a call in option for the Zoom meeting. We will also offer an early start for those who may need assistance getting their camera and microphones working. We will provide further details about the Zoom portion of our meeting when we send the Zoom invitation out the day of the meeting.
