Important New Information on Voting, Credentialing and Proxy Voting

All members wishing to vote must register using the above GoToWebinar link by 8:00 a.m. April 25 to allow the Credentialing Committee to credential members prior to the meeting. (“Credentialing” means that membership and proxy certificates have been confirmed to identify the number of votes a member will carry at the meeting.)

Credentialing will close at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday April 25 and the AGM will start at 10:00 a.m. If you are unable to attend the 2020 SPA AGM, you are welcome to use the proxy certificate to assign your vote to another SPA member who will attend. The certificate can be found via a link in the Members Area. You must complete and sign the proxy certificate and email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 4:00 p.m. on Friday April 24.

Please note the following points about assigning proxy:

  • A member may hold no more than ten (10) proxy certificates.
  • Members may not send blank (but signed) proxy certificates to other members. When a certificate is signed, it must contain the name of the nominee (proxy holder).
  • “Nominee” refers to the proxy holder while “Nominator” refers to the member conferring the right to vote.
  • The proxy may be revoked by the Nominator up to the end of the Annual General Meeting by delivering, in writing, to the Chair of the meeting, the notice of the revocation, duly signed by the Nominator.

Any proxy certificates received will allow the member in attendance online holding the proxy certificates to represent the associated number of votes.
