A virtual annual meeting is now becoming the norm as gatherings are understandably being rescheduled and moved online when possible. Even though the process of the meeting is changing drastically, there are still important matters that need to be resolved at an annual meeting. Some annual meetings include onsite Board of Directors elections, while others include voting to approve motions or bylaw changes.
How can all of these necessary items be handled while running a virtual annual meeting? You need to find an online voting platform that can handle your meeting voting in the most secure way possible, while also being easy to understand and use for members. Don’t resort to an unsecured polling software or casting votes via email or teleconference chat. You need to ensure all voting is handled efficiently while keeping voter data safe.
