Dear Neighbors,

Necessity is the mother of invention. We've all been reinventing our lives during this time of pandemic. The same is true for your Board of Directors, who have been hard at work implementing a plan to use the tools of modern technology to conduct our Annual Membership Meeting on May 21, 2020 at 8:00 pm while still keeping our members safe and observing both social distancing and the state's "stay at home" orders.

There will a number of votes on the agenda, including timely and interesting reports, and our annual vote for next year's Vice President (who will automatically become President the following year), Treasurer, Secretary and three Directors-at-Large. We'll also hear from Scarsdale's own Assemblymember Amy Paulin on what has been an unprecedented and unforgettable legislative session in the midst of a pandemic in Albany and across the state.

Here's what you'll need to do in order to be ready for our meeting on May 21.

1.) Download, fill out, and send in a proxy voting form . The Forum by-laws have been amended to p ermit membership voting to be done by proxy, not just for determining a quorum. (See a full explanation below.) We highly encourage you to fill it in and email it to whether or not you intend to participate in the meeting by Zoom or conference call. You can always modify or supplement your proxy submissions, including orally during the meeting.

2.) If you wish to participate by Zoom, RSVP online to receive the password . As always, the meeting is free and open to the public, but we're taking this extra step of security as a precaution against disruption.

3.) If you wish to participate by audio-only conference call, RSVP online to receive the dial-in information.

Finally, please remember to check that you are current with your dues so that you are eligible to vote and fully participate in the meeting.

Stay safe and be well,

Tim Foley
President, Scarsdale Forum
