Virtual AGM FAQs

This AGM will be hosted on Zoom! The week before the event, you will be given access to the meeting room.

You may also have the chance to experience using virtual collaboration tools during your self-selected work stream session – don’t worry, we will show you how it works!

We have partnered with Deloitte’s Greenhouse Experience Program to create an efficient, inclusive and engaging virtual AGM experience for participants. Your AGM day will feature a blend of inspirational speakers, self-selected breakout sessions where you will be able to learn and engage with industry experts, and opportunities to connect with colleagues across the network.

We will be utilizing Zoom’s breakout rooms functionality during many of the self-selected work stream sessions, which will allow us to connect you one-on-one, or in small groups to engage in discussion. We can move quickly from the main plenary to breakout sessions, and back!

We will also be connecting you for two “coffee chats” with other AGM participants based on areas of interest you highlighted during your registration. You will have access to printed materials to support these chats as part of your Experience Kit.

To ensure you have everything you need on AGM day, with your permission we will send an “experience kit” to your door in advance of October 1st. The kit will contain complimentary branded items and materials to support your participation during the event (e.g. work sheets for your self-selected work stream), along with snacks to keep you energized throughout the day as you race together!
