Due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic, we have had to change the way we do many things. Since
March, neighborhood associations have been hosting neighborhood meetings, either through virtual
platforms like Zoom or outside practicing physical distancing.
As we move into the season where many neighborhood associations’ bylaws require the association
to host an annual meeting and conduct elections, the Energize our Neighborhoods team wanted to
provide some helpful tips to effectively host your annual meeting online.
How to Hold an Annual Meeting Via Online Platform
Technology allows for neighborhood associations to conduct meetings in a variety of ways. There are
several online platforms that allow associations to conduct meetings while still practicing physical
distancing. Regardless of the platform used, annual meetings should still be open to all members. All
stakeholders should be provided with the appropriate information to attend through the medium chosen by the Board.
