Conventions

Gyro Conventions are organized annually by local Gyro Clubs and Gyro International.  The convention includes:  Training Sessions; Board Meetings; an AGM where the International Officers are elected and business, for the good of Gyro, is conducted.  Social activities include such things as tours to points of interest, dinners and dancing.  The Conventions also give Gyros and Gyrettes the opportunity to renew friendships and make new friends. 

Virtual Gyro AGM:  Zoom Session

June 26, 2021

The Gyro International Convention, to have been held in Winnipeg, was cancelled because of ongoing concerns about gathering safely in Canada and the unpredictability of the border opening in time. This is a disappointing situation for all of Gyros, especially the Winnipeg Convention Committee on the occasion of their club’s 100th anniversary. We appreciate all of the months of planning they undertook and thank them for their hard work.

Therefore, as the Gyro International Constitution requires a Convention – Annual General Meeting (AGM) to occur annually:

a Virtual Gyro AGM will be held on Saturday, June 26, 2021.

The following information is to explain how your club can participate in the meeting either in person or through your Governor.

Notice and Registration

On or around May 28 you will receive an email from a company called GetQuorum (GQ). GQ will be assisting the Executive Council with preparing for and hosting the meeting. This assistance is to make the First Ever Gyro Virtual AGM as successful as possible and to assess the process to have a virtual component at AGMs in the future for those that cannot attend in person.  Their email will include:

Observers:

If any other officer or other member of your club wishes to observe the AGM, please have them email  with their club name, name and email address by June 15 so they can be registered.

Format:

The AGM will be on Zoom so a link to the meeting site will be sent to you when you register. If you have already been on a Zoom webinar then connecting will be a simple click on the link provided. If you have not been on Zoom before, then a User Guide will be supplied to assist you.
