Our bylaws stand silent on the allowance of holding meetings electronically, but they do say we are to follow Robert’s Rules of Order . This document expressly prohibits the use of electronic meetings. Therefore, the 105 th NCWM Annual Meeting was held on July 15, 2020, in Michigan with a small gathering of our members from my staff (see photo below). The meeting agenda was as follows: • Call to Order • Motion to adjourn due to lack of quorum to Sunday, January 10, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. at the Sirata Beach Hotel and Conference Center at St. Pete Beach, Florida

Dear NCWM Members, I hope this message finds you well! This has not been the chairmanship I was expecting. We had hoped to have a plan to move forward and grow the conference over the coming years. Instead, we need to focus on preserving what we have. We will face some challenges in the way we conduct business over the next several months, but we are committed to finding what works both for the advancement of weighing and measuring issues and for the members.

• Adjourn
