Things to know for the 2021 Virtual Convention
If you want to vote and you plan on using your phone during committee meetings or during the State Directors Session, you need to have the Zoom app and join through the Zoom link. Using the call in option will not allow you to vote by raising your hand or answer a poll question.  You do not need the Zoom app if you use your PC.
All committee members will receive an email before their respective meetings with a link that takes you directly to the Zoom committee meeting. The links at http://www.apha.com/events/convention are for members and guests and will not allow you to vote during the meeting.
Directors not present for roll call during the State Directors Session on Sunday will not receive a voting email per Article VI 6.1.F.:
A State Director/Alternate must attend each meeting of the State Directors and answer roll call each time it is taken to assure a record of their attendance. Failing to do this, the Director/Alternate may be replaced at the discretion of the President.
