Our ECOO Board of Directors met on Monday, June 6th for the regular ECOO business meeting. The meeting commenced with the Land Acknowledgement and reading of the ECOO Human Rights Statement.
A large portion of the meeting was devoted to a working session in preparation for our upcoming #ECOOcamp Ontario 2022 on August 23-25.
The Events Chair reported on a number of key planning stages that have just been addressed:
- The Call for Sponsors has been forwarded to sponsors of previous ECOOcamp events.
- The Call for Proposals is live and session proposals are being collected.
- The #ECOOcamp conference committee still has vacancies for a couple of positions. Members interested in helping out can contact Melissa Bogaert.
Early Bird registration will open on Monday, June 20th and run until the end of the month. ECOO members receive a $25 discount off of the $50 registration fee, and if they register during the Early Bird window they can save an additional $10. (Read: Members $15 + HST)
Non-member registration includes an ECOO membership and is available with the same $10 savings during the Early Bird window.
Presenters will receive a $25 discount off of their registration. If they are already an ECOO members, this reduces their registration fee to $0.
As with previous ECOOcamps, door prizes are already being amassed for #ECOOcamp attendees. Last year’s event feature over 250 prizes awarded to conference participants.
During the business portion of the meeting, the Board quickly reviewed membership statistics, received an update on the 2023 Programming Contest, discussed a couple of potential partnerships, and received the monthly financial reports.
