Due to Phase 4, Tier 3 COVID-19 Mitigations meetings for more than 10 people are not permitted. Our constitution requires a yearly Annual Meeting. In conjunction with Northern Illinois Synod guidance, the Council has been working hard to develop a way for all voting members* to participate in the Annual Meeting. You can participate in our 2021 Budget Meeting on January 17 and our 2021 Annual Meeting on January 31 over the phone, online or in person (with reservations, distanced and masked). The Gathering time for both meetings is 10 a.m. with the meetings beginning at 10:15 a.m. The budget (for review) will be emailed to all with email and mailed to all without email prior to the Budget Meeting. Following the Budget Meeting, after any changes have been made, the Annual Report will be emailed to all with email and mailed to all without email. Paper copies will also be available at Immanuel.
A ballot for the 2021 Annual Meeting was mailed in the newsletter. If you have additional voting members in your household, you can pick up additional ballots at Immanuel or request them to be mailed to you. You must attend the Annual Meeting online, over the phone or in person in order to vote.
*As per our constitution, voting members are confirmed members who have communed & made a contribution of record in the current or preceding calendar year.
