Virtual Platforms

Ensuring members can have voice and engage in the democratic process are two key components of a successful Annual Meeting. Ensuring SUN members have access to these same vital elements from the comfort and safety of their home is crucial during a global pandemic.

To participate in the 2022 virtual Annual Meeting, members will be engaging in the scheduled events utilizing the benefits of three (3) different platforms:


Utilizing a familiar system, the business portion of the Annual Meeting will be hosted on Zoom.

Through the Zoom platform, members will be able to speak to the Chair to seek clarification or raise in favour or against a resolution or motion.


  • Computer/laptop/tablet or mobile device with internet
  • Zoom Cloud Meetings App (if required, system will prompt you to download on entry to meeting)
  • Microphone is required to speak during meeting

There will not be a phone-in option available for this meeting.


Voting on motions, resolutions, amendments and elections will be conducted via the online voting platform, ElectionBuddy.
