April 30, 2020 Virtual Town Hall
On April 30, 2020, a virtual Town Hall was held with the CFUW membership. The purpose of the Town Hall was the following:
- to provide information relative to the historical CFUW-GWI relationship and particularly financial questions that have been a concern of Clubs
- to inform members about the composition of the Mediation Working Group and to elaborate on its mandate to work with the mediator, Rebecca Bromwich, to seek a solution, or options, to resolve positions within CFUW about continued membership in GWI.
- to give Clubs an opportunity to ask questions about content presented or ask for further related information.
- to provide an open mike session for members to express views or to make comments. This latter item will be conducted so that members may speak for 2 minutes each, and the moderator/chairs will ensure that there is regional representation of speakers.
