Annual Meeting

Sunday, May 22, 2022 21 Iyyar 5782

10:15 AM - 11:45 AM

On Sunday, May 22, 2022 Shir Hadash will hold a virtual annual meeting.  The business meeting is for members only and will be held from 10:15 AM – 11:45 AM.  The Zoom link will be sent out to members the week prior to the meeting.  

We will conduct virtual voting as we did last year.  Details will be provided as we approach the meeting date. You will have a window to log in and vote that will run from the start of the meeting until later in the day. Logging in and voting on May 22 is the preferred method as doing so enables us to count you toward the quorum required. This is very important because there is no election without a quorum. You can leave the Zoom after voting if you are unable to stay for the entire meeting.  In two-adult households, one adult can obtain the ballot of, and vote for, the other adult member as well as for her/himself.

Since the Finance Committee signed confidentiality agreements, they will tally the votes. They will authenticate that the voter is a member in good standing and record the votes.  After the voting, the final results will be archived and the individual votes will be deleted.  

At the meeting you will be asked to vote for candidates for open positions on the Board of Directors. Before that, you will be able to ask them questions. We will also vote on the proposed operating budget for 2022-2023, as well as proposed By-Laws updates. Please refer to the email announcement for more information about candidates, the proposed budget, and By-Laws updates.

If you are unable to be at the Zoom meeting and wish to vote, please contact the Shir Hadash office at 847-498-8218, or send an email to, and you will be sent an absentee ballot.  All absentee ballots must be received by the Shir Hadash office no later than Thursday, May 19, 2022. We’d greatly prefer that you vote on-line on May 22 as absentee votes will not count toward the quorum required.

The Annual Meeting will feature leadership reports and updates on what is happening in these extraordinary times.  We encourage you to participate in this important meeting and voting process for Shir Hadash. It is a wonderful chance to gather with your fellow congregants, share your ideas and give input to the governance process.  We look forward to your joining us.
