Theatre Ontario invites our members to join us for our Annual Meeting at 1pm on May 26 at the Robert Gill Theatre (University of Toronto), 214 College Street, Toronto, Ontario. For those of you who can’t make it in-person, you can now follow the meeting online through our AGM Live-Blog.
Live-blogs have become a favourite part of our annual Theatre Ontario Festival Awards Brunch. Beginning in 2010 in London, and continuing in 2011 in Richmond Hill, we were able to share the Festival Awards results as they were announced with an audience of eager readers and commenters across the province. The tool we use—CoverItLive—also allows us to keep an archive for readers to catch up with us afterwards. We’re looking forward to having another Theatre Ontario Festival 2012 Awards Live-Blog from Sault Ste. Marie on May 20.
This year, we’re going to use the same tool to live-blog our AGM. It will give members from across the province who can’t make it to the Robert Gill Theatre in-person an opportunity to follow along at home and ask questions. Official voting privileges are still handled through the use of proxy forms (copies of which can be found on the Theatre Ontario website.)
Because this a members’ meeting, the AGM live-blog will be found in the members-only section of our website. We encourage you to verify your login prior to the meeting in case there are any problems with your access. Our organization and group members can share their login access with staff and volunteers if they wish—there is a single login for each organization. Contact Brandon Moore, Communications Coordinator if you have any questions, need more information, or encounter any difficulties.
As technology continues to improve and becomes more accessible and affordable, we at Theatre Ontario will continue to work for you by exploring more opportunities to connect with our members and theatres artists across the province.
