Companions this is to update you on the upcoming Grand Convocation which will start at 8:30 AM on Saturday March 6, 2021.
This year it will be a hybrid meeting, what does this mean?
For the health and safety of the membership, we are limited to 25 physical attendees. Only the companions needed to open the Grand Chapter Session will meet in person prior to the Webinar being broadcast at 8:30 AM.
The rest of the companions will be asked to register for the webinar/voting (the link is listed below) and will be able to join in to watch the hybrid Grand Session, the Zoom link is personal to the individual, please no sharing of the Zoom Webinar link you will receive, otherwise only the first person using that link will be able to attend.
This is currently in progress and may experience a delay in receiving the webinar link.
As it is a webinar, you will be able to view the physical attendees. Your video will not be shared, however, the moderator will control any required voice participation from Companions on the webinar as required. This will be explained during the webinar.
I ask that you register as soon as possible, so if you are a voting member of Grand Chapter you can receive the link for the separate secure voting system being used, should voting attendees need to vote. So please submit your annual return & per Capita to the Grand Secretary's office ASAP, otherwise your Chapter will not be entitled to vote.
Grand Chapter will be held on March 6th
and will be a one-day event.
During the webinar, the business of Grand Chapter will be conducted along with the election. The private installation of the Grand High Priest will follow then the webinar will close. At that point, the Grand Chapter will then be closed. The webinar will reopen for the public installation of the Grand Chapter Officers, this part will be open to all who would like to join in. The Public Installation webinar link will be published closer to the time and Facebook live streaming is planned.
