Online votes tallied for IDC Annual Meeting

Published by Julia Salerno, October 25, 2010.

IDC held its Annual Meeting on Friday, September 24, at IIDEX/NeoCon Canada. As a result of the restructured association, individual practitioners who belong to provincial associations are now members of IDC. This means fully qualified members (those in the highest classification of membership) are now entitled to vote on matters related to the organization, including nominations and finances.

Unfortunately, we did not reach quorum for the meeting and therefore could not proceed with the required voting. A quorum is 15 per cent of full voting members in attendance, or 233 members. In total, 179 members were in attendance, either in person or by proxy. We did hold the meeting as scheduled, but we were unable to present any motions for approval. As a result, the board determined to conclude the meeting and the record keeping by having all full members participate in an online voting process via email. Voting members were asked to vote on three motions that were presented at the Annual Meeting and were provide the necessary background documents to cast a fair vote.

Motion #1 was to approve the minutes of the April 23, 2010 Annual Meeting as presented. 371 members voted to approve the motion and two members voted to reject. Motion #2 was to approve the six-month audited financial statements ending June 30, 2010. 364 members voted to approve and three voted to reject. The final motion was to appoint Kriens LaRose as the auditor for IDC for the year ending June 30, 2011. 374 members voted to approve the motion and two voted to reject the motion.

The voting is now closed. Thank you to all members who exercised their right to vote. Over the next few months, we will continue to communicate the changes that have occurred as a result of the restructuring so that you are informed about how these changes affect you personally.
