Please note that RECO’s Annual General Meeting may include photography, as well as video and audio recording. Attendance at the meeting means you consent to RECO recording your image and voice.
Question & Answer Session
RECO is committed to enhancing registrant participation in the AGM by ensuring that sufficient time is available for members to ask questions and that members who are unable to attend the meeting have an opportunity to participate.
Although the question and answer session is not part of the formal meeting agenda, it will be recorded so that the questions received, and the responses provided, can be shared with all members following the meeting. Recording will also ensure comments which merit further consideration by RECO can be addressed at a later date.
After the meeting adjourns, the Chair will open the floor to questions. Members may take this opportunity to ask the RECO Board or staff questions about the reports presented, policies, programs, services and initiatives.
Questions raised by members should be of general interest. Matters related to an individual, a specific situation or regulatory actions against a specific member will not be addressed at the meeting.
Please note that Annual General Meeting time is limited. RECO will attempt to respond to all questions. In certain cases, the questions submitted may already be answered in the reports provided by the Chair, CEO or the Registrar. These remarks will be published on RECO’s website following the meeting.
In the event there is not time to respond to all questions RECO will respond to the questions submitted as soon as possible following the meeting.
If you are in attendance, you may approach the microphone to be recognized and ask your question. While members will be recognized in order, the Chair may address questions submitted in writing in between the questions asked by meeting attendees.
Please keep in mind that there will be other members in attendance who may have questions. Question cards provided at the meeting may be used to help you prepare. If you are not comfortable approaching the microphone, questions cards will be collected and treated as if they were submitted in writing.
