Public comment webinars
We offer webinar opportunities to help you learn more about policy and bylaws proposals that are available for public comment.
The purpose of these webinars is to provide members, especially those who do not normally attend their regional meeting, an opportunity to learn about the proposals on the discussion agenda. Attendees will be permitted to ask questions during the webinars, but the regional meetings will still be the formal avenue for regional discussion and voting.
