Maryland & Virginia’s 2020 Annual Meeting is going virtual. Given the ongoing national health crisis, the Board of Directors approved hosting the annual event using Zoom webinar technology the first week of August. The meeting will take place over three days, and members can participate via phone, smartphone tablet or computer from the convenience of their own homes and farms.
The Annual Meeting sessions will start informally with a Zoom Introductory Session, How to Join and Participate in a Virtual Meeting for Members (30 mins) on Wednesday July 29, at noon. This session is geared toward those members who have never participated in a zoom meeting before.
The true meat of the meetings will start on Monday August 3 at 10:30 a.m. with a spotlight on operations, sales and marketing with Todd Aarons, Executive Vice President of Operations and Brian Linney, COO.
The formal business meeting will be held Tuesday August 4, at 9:30 a.m. for the purpose of receiving officer reports, electing directors and transacting any other business that may come before the membership.
On Thursday August 6 at noon, Maryland & Virginia will host a Virtual Honors Ceremony to celebrate the cooperative’s 100-Year Members, 50-Year Member and Producer of the Year. This session is open to guests, media, checkoff organizations, customers and other industry partners.
The election process will be conducted by mail. Paper ballots will be mailed to all members. Members will have two weeks to return their completed ballot to Herbein + Company, the cooperative’s auditor.
Registration is now open for each of the sessions. Please register for each of the sessions you wish to attend.
