♥ Meetings are conducted from 7-8 p.m. sharp. ♥ Members have the option to come early and socialize (either in person or online). ♥ Two (2) nomination forms are drawn at the beginning of each meeting ♥ Each of the two (2) nominating members has 5 minutes to tell us why their charity should receive the funds. There is then a 5 minute question and answer period for each. ♥ Each member in good standing, votes online or on paper ballots.* ♥ Ties will be decided by another vote. ♥ If a tie persists, the membership will vote (by paper or online ballot) to either:
randomly select one of the tied organizations by draw
divide the group donation equally between the tied organizations
♥The previous meeting’s successful recipient gives a 5-minute report on how the funds we donated were used.
♥ An organization not selected at one meeting may be submitted again at a subsequent meeting. ♥ A successful organization is not eligible for future consideration but the nominating member may submit the name of another organization at future meetings.
♥ We keep members updated via email, our Facebook and Instagram page at 100womencyr and the “member only” Facebook page.
