The last Morning Member Meeting (Triple M) is on Thursday, February 25. Log into the FVREB Portal (https://portal.fvreb.bc.ca) between 8:30 and 9:45 am (meeting starts at 9:30 am) that day so you are ready to tune into the livestream of the meeting and participate! And in case you needed more reasons to attend, here are five good ones:

1. Get updates on the Board’s latest activities from Board President Chris Shields and CEO Baldev Gill.

If you have any questions or comments to share, there’s an “Ask Me Anything” section on the agenda when you can submit questions or comments. Use the “Ask a Question” tab in the FVREB Portal.

2. Learn about the Proposed By-Law Resolutions, and ask questions before you vote on them at the AGM.

The Board’s Governance Committee has been collecting member feedback on several proposed by-law amendment topics during the Triple M’s and refining them for the upcoming AGM. If you join the Triple M on February 25, you’ll be able to learn about the latest version of the resolutions and ask questions to help you decide if you support or oppose them.

3. Test your communications device of choice (e. g. desktop computer, tablet, smart phone, etc.) so you’re familiar with the technology in advance of the virtual FVREB AGM on March 11.

View the livestream of the Triple M and practice non-binding votes on proposed by-law amendment topics, so you are ready for the binding votes during the AGM.

Proxies will not be accepted at the AGM: We will not be accepting proxy votes during the AGM because the FVREB Constitution and By-laws (ARTICLE TWO, PART D, Section 1, Paragraph (c), sub-paragraph v) explicitly state that FVREB is not able to accept proxies when meetings are held electronically, as will be the case on March 11. For more details, visit our AGM 2021 page on REALTOR Link®. Therefore, it is very important that members become comfortable with the voting technology that will be used in advance of the meeting.

We have scheduled two 30-minute “How to Vote at the AGM” sessions on Tuesday, March 9 at 9 am and at 1 pm, so you can practice voting in advance of the AGM. To sign up for a session, visit our TLC calendar.

4. Connect with your real estate community and your Board.

The COVID-19 global pandemic has presented challenges to all of us. As we continue to navigate through this unusual time, it’s even more important for us to stay connected and engage in activities that are relevant to our community. We hope the online format of our Triple M’s and our upcoming AGM give even more members the opportunity to learn, get involved, and share their views with their community.

5. Learn a piece of Board trivia you never knew before!

Did you know that Professional Standards logged 955 tickets in 2020? Or that Tech Support fielded over 9,000 calls? Or that there were 500 Medallion qualifiers last year. Tune in to the Triple M to find out what other nuggets you might learn!

“See” you on February 25!
