NOTICE TO MEMBERS
Wednesday, March 24, 2021
During this period of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Caisse Alliance remains available to its members and communities. Pursuant to the recommendations of public health authorities, preventive measures have been taken. As the situation evolves, Caisse Alliance is adapting its operations accordingly.
In compliance with regulatory requirements for the convening of the Annual General Meeting (AGM), we are announcing today, March 24, 2021, an amendment to our meeting format. Considering the restrictions with public gatherings and in order to contribute to the collective efforts to contain the spread of the virus, the Caisse announces that the AGM will be held as scheduled on Tuesday, April 27, 2021. However, the meeting will be held in virtual format, in the presence of the 12 members of the Board of Directors, the 12 members of the Caisse’s management team and the 36 delegates representing the members. The External Auditor and a member of the Financial Services Regulatory Authority of Ontario (FSRA) will also be convened. This format will allow all invited participants to take part in the meeting from home.
Despite the change in the format, Caisse members will be able to view the AGM in virtual mode through the Zoom platform. Members will have to register in advance on our website by clicking here. By registering online, a unique link will be emailed to the participants, allowing them to view the meeting in real time.
Following the meeting, all relevant information (annual report, financial statements) will be shared with our members on our website (caissealliance.com) and in branches, once the situation has returned to normal. Our management team and Regional Managers will also be available to answer any questions our members may have.
In addition, the Caisse’s new governance model provides for regional meetings to be held in our communities in the fall. A notice of the meeting will be published in due course. This will provide us the opportunity to meet our members individually and answer their questions and concerns.
I wish to personally thank you, dear members, for the trust you have placed in your co-op and for your understanding in this unprecedented situation. We are committed to remain human, available and connected, even during these difficult times.
Chair, Board of Directors
